FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS?

        Can I stay longer/shorter than the 12 month contract period?

All EFL contracts in Korea are limited to 12 month contracts lasting exactly 365 days. If you consistently put in your best effort and fulfill your contract with integrity and enthusiasm there is an excellent chance your school will invite you to sign a contract renewal shortly before your contract period expires. You will then be able to take a long vacation between the two contract periods and return to Korea to commence a second contract without the need to reapply. This way it is possible in many cases to renew an existing contract for several years in a row. If you prefer to move to another city or province in Korea every so often then you can contact us in this regard. We advise you plan ahead by making contact with us midway through your contract to start planning as acquiring Application Documents in South Africa while you are in Korea can take a little longer.


Cutting a contract short by resigning during the year is not advisable as it can adversely affect future employment opportunities as an English teacher in Korea. Schools are very reluctant to hire teachers who have a track record of not completing their 12 month contracts so we advise you only consider this option in the case of family or other emergencies that compel you to resign.
