I'll start by saying I'm not posting an advertisment, just offering options.

I've been in Korea since August teachng English. If you're strapped for cash, or want to try something different, it might be worth considering.

There are lots of people posting who are in urgent need of cash, so it might be an option. There are some pitfalls, as with anything, but most people are happy here. The works easy and you don't need any experience. The hardest part may be adjusting to Korean culture and food.

The pay is less than in the UK, it exchanges to about 1100GBP a month, but I can send half my salary back home to pay off student loans etc each month. The great thing is I get a rent free house and income tax is only 3.5%

How does it work? Do you need to know the other language to teach it? Because I always thought you would need to, and Id feel rude in another country not speaking their language, but some friends told me you didnt need to.

You dont need to know the other language, only english and there are books to follow. There are also lessons with korean teachers to teach them grammar, woth us it is only conversation - usually. I got my job through a friend, the original one fell through right at the last minute so he arranged another one for me when he got to seoul. There are lots of agents looking for teachers, and just schools advertising on the internet, usually you get a quick phone call so you have to know any questions you need to ask
