We love placing English teachers in China & Korea and we believe we’re great at it. Don’t take our word for it, check out reviews from past teachers.
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.
So supportive and kind
I will start by saying that AT has been pretty rockin ever since I got here. They definitely do not lie about the amount of support they will give you if you need them here in Korea! And of course my overall experience with AT was great. The team did an excellent job keeping me updated - a special thanks especially to Mindy and Dok Hoon... without you, I would not be in Korea right now taking the time to express my gratitude for everything you did to get me here! The opportunity I have with my school here in Korea has been life changing. It was a lot of hard work to get here, but I could not of done it without your help! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
At Amazes me!
I came to Adventure Teaching after I received notice from EPIK that my dream of teaching in a public school in Seoul was not going to be a reality this year. AT found me an amazing job at a reputable hagwon in Seoul, and they were absolutely phenomenal throughout the whole process - from helping me with my visa paperwork all the way to arriving in Korea. I always felt supported, cared about, and encouraged by my placement coordinator, Kelly. I would highly recommend AT to anyone looking for a reliable teaching position in South Korea!
The Bees Knees
I have the utmost respect for AT. The team has been amazing in every step of our journey. They make a daunting, mundane and multiphase process very simple. I dont know exactly what the bees knees are, but I think that is a good way to put it. What I mean is AT is the best of the best. We felt supported even in the hardest of times - like when I finished all my visa paperwork, and it got lost in the mail. Problem solving, support and kindness was all I received from AT, and we made it through. My husband and I are now in Korea. The school has been fantastic, a perfect fit. THANK YOU. I owe all that I learn and experience to you guys. Bring it on, Korea! To all those out there finding a way to Korea: choosing ANY other placement company would be the wrong choice. You know what to do...
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!
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!
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 Kelly 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!
I could not have asked for more from AT. In all the ways my husband and I needed support, Adventure Teaching was there to support us and help us to figure it all out. They made the steps of coming to Korea easy, despite the unforeseen, unpredicted challenges. The communication was amazing as well. Everyone we talked to was always approachable, kind and timely in response. Also, since being in Korea, we have been amazed by our school. It is the perfect fit, which we have to thank AT for also. We are excited to grow and change and learn so much in our new home here in Korea, and AT made it all possible!
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!
