My contact has been working very closely with me throughout the hiring processes. He has been very patient and answered all of my many questions thoroughly, especially regarding the visa acquisition process. I have not left for Korea yet, but I had help in purchasing a plane ticket and have my entire itinerary planned out for when I arrive. The experience could not have been made easier. I am looking forward to going out there and starting to work with my new school. Overall, wonderful experience.

Jaemin with Travel and Teach has been the biggest help during this time. He was able to get me into touch with great schools in the areas I wanted to be in, and was able to answer all my questions in a timely manner. Along with making sure I would be comfortable for my interviews. Jaemin was great at explaining the contract and making sure I had the correct documents ready, especially since things are a bit different right now with covid restrictions. The whole experience was great and I highly recommend them if you're looking for an English teaching job!

Even though I haven’t left yet, the endless support that Jaemin and Travel and Teach have given me within this process has been incredible and I appreciate it beyond words. Jaemin answered allnif my questions about the process and helped me every step of the way! Ultimately Jaemin was the primary person who put in continuous and endless amounts of effort in order to find me the school that I ended up picking to work at. I can’t thank Jaemin and Travel and Teach enough!

Thinking about traveling and teaching? Look no further than Teach and Travel. I am satisfied with the help I received, especially from my recruiter, Jaemin. He was quick with responses and always addressed any concerns of mine. Within a week, I was offered a position and Jaemin assisted me throughout the whole process. I would recommend using their services to other people.

I spent such a long time searching for a good company and I am so so very happy that I chose to go through Travel and Teach (T&T)! Jaemin, who is my contact person, is honestly the best. He was so responsive, answered all of my questions, and helped me in every step of the process- the visa, the interview, etc. Mine was a very long process in terms of getting paperwork processed by the government (because of covid), but Jaemin stuck it out with me. I really would not have been able to do this all on my own! He found a position that fit exactly what I was looking for. I had never thought about teaching at a hagwon until T&T, and so far it’s been great! I also felt confident going into my teaching position because I know that if anything were to happen T&T would have my back. I will forever be grateful for everything they have done!

My experience with Travel and Teach was amazing! They worked with me step by step throughout the entire process of moving to and working in Korea. From the initial stages of gathering necessary documents, to setting up interviews with different schools, until the end with purchasing my flight and preparing me for what to expect and who to contact, they were there. They also answered all of my questions, big and small, in a timely manner. If you enjoy teaching and want to live abroad for a year and learn about and experience a new country and culture, Travel and Teach is how you make it happen!

I would 100% recommend travel and teach to anyone who is looking to teach English in South Korea. They made the whole process of finding a job and obtaining a visa very easy. I worked with Jaemin who was incredibly helpful and always responded to my emails very quickly. I could not have done this process without them so thank you Jaemin and the whole travel and teach team!
