Teaching English in South Korea is an amazing experience. There is definitely a reason why thousands of university graduates flock to teach English in South Korea year after year. Korea has become one of the number one destinations for being the best country to teach English in and there are many reasons why. Korea has so much to offer English teachers that they keep coming back year after year. I will explore some of the reasons why 18moa Korea is so popular.
English Teachers in South Korea receive a free round trip flight to Korea paid by the school. All of the ESL schools in Korea pay for the teacher's flight upfront. The cost of the flight is roughly $2000US and they get it for free. Most other countries will not pay for English teacher's flights let alone upfront. Getting a flight to Korea for free is great especially for university graduates who do not have a lot of money to spare. Traveling can be so expensive so this is a great way to get to see a new country without any expenses.
English teachers in South Korea receive free accommodation that their directors pay for. They get the choice of living with another teacher or having single accommodation. All the apartments are completed furnished by the school. Also the apartments are available the moment the teacher gets to Korea so they can move right in on their first day. Many other countries require the teachers to pay for their own accommodation and this can be quite expensive especially when furnishing an apartment and paying damage deposits. Also the accommodation in Korea is within 10-15 minutes walking distance to the school so it is very convenient.
