Jesse M, Incheon TEFL Course Graduate
Doing the TEFL training in South Korea was such a beneficial experience! It really helped me transition into the culture within the safety of a group, before being thrown into the deep end. It was a lot of fun, with lots of relevant cultural training, helpful support from the team, and studying the TEFL course with a group of fun, hard-working people.
I would highly recommend taking the TEFL training in-country, if possible, especially if you plan to stay on teaching here in South Korea. I feel much more prepared for my job having done the TEFL course in-country than I possibly could have been if I studied online.
