How to teach English in Korea

Good news, teaching abroad has never been easier!


First, you’ll need to apply on our online Application Form. It only takes a couple minutes to enter your details and begin. Make sure you have your resume and photo ready to attach.


If we have jobs that match your preferences and requests, one of our super friendly coordinators will reach out to you shortly after your application is received. He/she will schedule a time to speak in order to ask you a few questions and discuss your preferences.

Review & Interview

Review job options from your coordinator and conduct formal interviews with Korean schools who are interested in speaking with you. We’ll get you ready for the calls so you know what to expect and how to prepare.

Sign Agreement

Decide what job offer to accept and sign the contract. Your coordinator will help you navigate any contract related questions, should you have any.

Acquire Work Visa

Submit your visa documents to Korean Immigration. Documents will include a criminal record check, copy of your degree, passport photos and a number of immigration forms that your Gone2Korea coordinator will provide.

Depart For Korea

Pack your bags, board your flight and depart for Korea! Everything will be organized in advance and you’ll have detailed instructions on what to do, where to go, and who to meet upon arrival.

Training & Orientation

Your school will need you to arrive 5-7 days before your first day of work so they can give you some basic training and orientation. You’ll likely do some observation classes with a current teacher as well.
