Hello to all who read and visit my blog!  I just wanted to let you know there will be two job openings at my school for a full-time ESL Teacher this year.  The first position will start on May 3, 2010, and the second position will start on September 1, 2010.  The hours are 1pm-9pm or 2pm-10pm.  Please contact the e-mail address below if you or anyone you know may be interested. 

Most people can live on less than $1,000 per month here without a problem and save or spend the other $1,000 as they wish.  The school will pay for your living arrangements and the living expenses are extremely low, so it’s a great way to earn an income while saving or paying off debt.  The school will also pay for your flight to Korea (if you don’t already live here).  You won’t have to pay for a car note or car insurance, high health insurance or a mortgage – so, you can easily pocket/spend your earnings without feeling stressed.

Read below for more details:

English Teacher (Vacancy Announcement)

 Blue Ocean English Institute, an English Leaning Institute in Jeon-ju, South Korea, is seeking an English teacher to commence work in May 2010.

 This is a full-time teaching job for Elementary- and Middle-school Korean students who are learning English as a second language. This is a one-year commitment to living and teaching in South Korea.

 The successful candidate will be expected to teach English classes to students in English immersion classes. As such, all classes will be taught in English. The English teacher will teach up to 32 classes per week, where each class lasts for 45 minutes. The daily schedule will be set by the school. Proficiency in Korean is not required.

In order to commence work at the proper time, the proper paperwork must be gathered and submitted in order to obtain an E-2 Visa to teach in South Korea.
