Our South Korea Programme is becoming one of our most popular programmes here at The Fewer Things.
There are two options available to successful applicants:
The Fewer Things will be with you from the start of your application process all the way to booking the best flight. Both options include an orientation where you will visit the famous Grand Palace, cook Korean food, take part in a Taekwondo class and take a tour of a war museum! This is an amazing start to your adventure as you will meet all of the teachers too. We focus a lot on the social side of things before and after your arrival, you will be added to group chats with other applicants and we often hold Zoom quizzes and monthly meet ups with everyone once in South Korea
The teaching is exciting, engaging and fully immerses you in Korean culture. You will be placed in a well established modern-day school with a class size of around 30-40 with around 25 hours teaching per week plus additional lesson planning hours. We cater the experience as close to your needs as possible, so let us know if you are looking to boost your teaching experience, add to your CV or just looking to tick off as many things on your bucket list as possible. As well as your accommodation being provided for you, your school will also offer you a re-settlement allowance and reimburse your flight cost!
You can choose from public or private schools, which we can discuss in further detail during your interview. Private schools only with the in-class option - If you'd like to join a public school programme you would complete our online TEFL & placement option.
