TEFL Seoul | TEFL Korea

Widely recognized as one of the world’s most dynamic cities, Seoul has a long history dating back over two thousand years. This history can be witnessed in the ancient neighborhoods that are nestled among the glass-clad skyscrapers of the modern city. Situated on the Han River, Seoul has a population of almost 11 million people and is the 16th largest city in the world.

Seoul offers a high standard of living compared to the cost of living which is much lower than many other international cities. This makes it a popular destination for many TESOL teachers who can live well wherever in the city they choose to settle.

With a population of over 700,000 foreigners, Seoul is a cosmopolitan city with international districts such as Itaewon and Hannam catering to foreign tastes. Seoul is also the ideal destination for sampling local Korean cuisine with many high-quality restaurants to choose from.

Seoul’s transportation infrastructure is excellent and getting around and out of the city is easy with the subway or the high-speed KTX bullet train service. Getting to other parts of the country should not take more than few hours from Seoul.

Although Seoul is a large city it is incredibly safe and the locals are keen for international visitors to take away a positive experience of the country and its people. When setting yourself up in a new apartment you will find that many of the utility companies have English speaking staff to help you get things in order.

The School

ITTT’s TESOL training center in Seoul, South Korea is located on the northern side of the Han River and is near to the historic neighbourhood of Bukcheon and the Grand Gyunbok Palace.

Conveniently located close to two subway stops, the training center is within easy reach of other parts of the city. We are open seven days a week and the center offers wonderful views of the city. On the first floor is a café where you can get refreshments when taking a break from your studies.

Our instructors have plenty of experience in the EFL industry as well as of living and working in South Korea. As well as helping you to become a successful English teacher, they can provide insights to life as a TESOL teacher in South Korea.
