We’ve placed hundreds of English teachers in schools overseas. Many of them write to us to share stories of their experiences, and if we’re lucky, they’ll tell us how awesome they think we are.
And they’re not just pumping our tires – we’re great at what we do because we have spent thousands of hours perfecting our model to ensure that your transition to live and work overseas is a positive one. Don’t take it from us – check out the reviews below from our most recent satisfied teachers.
AT was a perfect job-search partner!
I have felt very comfortable and supported by AT. I'm very impressed with how much you care and want me to succeed. I think you guys provide a great service, and you have made my experience leading up to and in China a great one. I have been in China for almost 4 months, and I am absolutely loving it here! I would definitely recommend AT to anyone looking to travel abroad to China!
Best Choice You'll Make
After returning from two years in Korea, it felt great to be on home turf again... but my wife and I quickly realized how much we missed Seoul. Teaching young students with no English abilities and seeing them speak practically fluent English by the end of a year (coupled with the natural adoration they have for teachers) is probably the most rewarding job you will ever have. My wife and I were able to save enough over two years to pay off over $50,000 in student loans, while living an adventure, traveling Asia, and really getting our first years of marriage started on the right page. We miss the lifestyle, the people we met, and especially the food. Adventure Teaching was the perfect middle man. They really took into account our personalities and preferences and tried to find us the best match for a school. They make the visa/application process so simple and in no time you are there living the dream! I strongly recommend using their expertise to your advantage if you are considering teaching abroad.
Unlike any other agency out there...
We are convinced that AT is the BEST teaching-abroad agency out there! We have spoken with some of the other teachers in our school, and their experiences with agencies were not nearly as positive as the experience that my wife and I had with AT. They got us in contact with a fantastic after-school English program in an amazing city. We love the children we teach and our boss is great. We have been able to explore South Korea and are making plans to visit other countries soon. Everyone on the AT team was incredibly helpful and kind; they were just as excited about the opportunity awaiting us to teach in South Korea as we were! We cannot shout AT\'s praises highly enough, and we are so grateful for all of their wonderful help in landing us dream jobs in South Korea!
Would Not be here without you!
If it weren't for AT, I probably wouldn't be sitting in lovely South Korea right now. Their thorough and aesthetically pleasing website provided me with practical information, deep insight into the Korean culture, blogs and beautiful pictures . The detailed, step by step list for my visa application was a godsend and kept me on point. Lastly, my placement coordinator was amazing! She was a great sounding board for me as I went through the whole process. My transition to Korea has been smoother than I expected, and I think AT deserves a lot of the credit! Thanks!
Thankful for the Support
The greatest part of my experience in China so far is how tight and close the foreign community is. Being new to the country, I thought I would be on my own for the most part, while only receiving help occasionally from co-workers. However, everyone offers to help me, take me out to nice restaurants and bars, as well as be there as good friends. While it is necessary for me to be open and have a positive mindset about living abroad, making the transition from America to China would be very difficult without the ongoing check in emails from AT asking "Hey how's it going over there?" and the amazing teacher community I have at my school. I'm definitely in good hands!
When I looked into coming to Korea, I really didn\'t know what I was getting myself into. I heard about AT from a friend, so I checked their webpage out and decided to proceed with the process. AT has been an awesome recruiting agency! The biggest thing I appreciated about AT is the fact that they tell it how it is. They\'re not going to candy coat what you\'re signing up for, or lie to you to get you to sign up. They care about their teachers, and who they choose to represent AT. They are super helpful and were always available to answer any questions whether it be \"I don\'t know what kind of deodorant to pack, or how the heck am I supposed to fill out this Visa form?\" Living in Korea is awesome, but definitely challenging at times - I\'m glad AT helped prepare me for that. Great people, great heart, great service!
The months are just flying by here in Ulsan, Korea. I really feel I have a second home. It is going to be difficult to leave. The students, staff, and locals have made a tremendous impact on my life. How could I ever thank Adventure Teaching for providing me with this opportunity? I have grown so much, learned a ton, and am now starting the job search with AT in China... never stop exploring, right?!
I'm your #1 fan
Everyone I communicated with at AT was courteous and professional, and the visa process was straightforward and clear. AT was very helpful and attentive after I signed a contract. Very glad I read all the info packs because they seemed to be good preparation. My experience here so far has been very close to what the info packs described. My kindergarten is a great place to work and Gwangju is a great city to live in. AT does a great job - I feel like they have got this down. They do more than just recruit!
Traveling with someone is possible with AT!
Adventure Teaching made the crazy idea of teaching in Asia not only a possibility, but a reality. They even managed to get both my husband and I jobs in the exact location we wanted!!! I had a few people who asked me who I worked through to get over here, and I can\'t stop telling them about you guys! You da best!
Helped me achieve my dreams
After not securing a position in Korea, I was able to get hired at a school very quickly in China, which was an exciting and positive process. I am having a great time over here, and I'm thankful that AT was able to meet my desires so promptly and effectively! A word of advice: there are stark cultural differences between Chinese businesses and their Western counterparts, so make sure you read anything and everything you can get your hands on before you get here. The transition will be tough, but if you persevere, the benefits of living and working in China are well worth it!
