I knew I wanted to teach in Korea, and I ultimately chose to work with AT because of how thorough and supportive their community seemed on their website – I had no idea how seamless the process and transition would be once accepted into their program! Thanks to their experienced and passionate staff, I was able to enjoy every step of my way to Korea, and for that I could not be more impressed or grateful.
Wow! You guys are great! I love the academy that you placed me with. The students are awesome and so are the people that I work with. Coming to Korea has been one of the most memorable experiences of my life and it is just getting started. Thanks to the hard working team at AT – you have made my experience better than I could have thought possible. THANK YOU!!!!
On coming to Korea we were more than satisfied. We were EXTREMELY well prepared by AT, but we also knew that once we arrived it was going to be all about implementing what we had learned. Our placement coordinator was wicked awesome. She really cared for us before we left. We always loved our conversations with her – they were never all business, they were filled with what was new and exciting in our lives as well. We felt like were good friends who had just never met before. Thank you AT!
I had such an awesome experience with AT! Their whole staff was so helpful and kind about any questions or concerns that I had along the way. I appreciate the balance they have between letting me fly free after I arrived in Korea, but also occasionally checking in to see how I am doing. They prepare you as much as they can before arriving in Korea, and then give you the space to jump into your new life abroad! My favorite part of being connected with the AT family so far has been the teacher events they put on once or twice a year – so fun to be able to connect with other teachers in my area, and to connect with the team face to face! AT, you have been awesome and are very genuine people. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a great experience! Thanks AT!
Adventure Teaching, you never cease to amaze me. Throughout this whole process you have been honest and clear in the work and lifestyle as a foreign teacher in Korea, and you did not sugarcoat any details – you successfully managed to respond quickly and thoroughly whenever I was in need! I am extremely grateful for your hard work and for continuing to check in with me every few months!
Being out of my own comfort zone is just what the doctor ordered! You will be surprised how you will evolve to be a better person and teacher in Korea. You go through challenges here, but a flexible attitude and a sense of adventure will help get you through. The transition isn\’t always easy but you can overcome it, if you are willing to make the change for the better.
AT did their best to help me be prepared, and to ensure that things ran smoothly. They would answer all sorts of questions, no matter how ridiculous they were. They truly do their best to locate you here in Korea and they are knowledgeable in their field. I am grateful for them giving me the opportunity to experience the culture here and letting me spread my wings and explore my boundaries. They do what they can… then it\’s up to you to spread your wings and learn how to fly!
Working with Adventure Teaching to find a teaching position in Korea was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My placement coordinator was always there to answer any questions I had and her answers were always beyond satisfactory. On the Korean side, Dok Hoon is a gem. He has made the transition super smooth. He not only helped out with any questions I had once I arrived, but has checked in multiple times to see that everything was going well. I am looking forward to meeting him and the other AT staff at an AT teacher event this year!
The key to this feedback is, in fact, the honesty that this company extends. Adventure Teaching, and in particular the enlightened, open-minded, and enchanting support from my placement coordinator, is the reason why my transition to a foreign country, and experience so far has been nothing shy of superb. Without her help, it is doubtful I would have survived a week, let alone the incredibly lengthy flight. Because of the info packs, daily emails, and other support I received from Adventure Teaching, I was MORE than prepared to teach in South Korea. Now that I am here, and now that I am teaching, I wish to express my gratitude to my placement coordinator and to Adventure Teaching. You have opened the way for me to pioneer a new life abroad, and I am so grateful for your assistance in helping make my dreams become a rich and engaging reality!
Pursuing a job in Korea was tougher than I expected – the market is more competitive than ever, and it took me a few months longer than I anticipated to secure a position. But AT was amazing! My placement coordinator was AWESOME. She kept assuring me that my profile was being submitted to schools, and her responses were always quick and prompt. I appreciated this A LOT because putting your life on hold and waiting for a job to open in Korea can cause quite a bit of anxiety and stress. I am thankful I had AT on my side – pursuing work in Korea is not for the faint of heart, even GETTING there is a process… sometimes a LONG one!
I really enjoyed working with Adventure Teaching, and will recommend them again and again! I was excited to come to South Korea, but had read a lot of horror stories about teachers and bad situations. From the moment I started to work with Adventure Teaching I was very confident that they would have my best interests in mind. My placement coordinator helped me every step of the way, and made the entire process so easy – she was such a delight to work with! Now that I am in South Korea, I could not be more happy with the school I work for and all my accommodations. My advice? Trust AT to find a great fit for you – let them do the work behind the scenes, and trust that whatever school they set up an interview with will be the right one for you. Thank you for everything, AT!
