More About the School
This school specifically specializes in teaching ‘returnee students’, who are students that have studied abroad in an English-speaking country and have returned to Korea and want to continue studying English. Their level of English is therefore very high, so the school is only able to hire people with degrees in Education or those who have teaching certification.
