Teaching Opportunity in Korea for Diplomas & 2yr Associate Degrees

TaLK (Teach and Learn Korea) Internship Program

Without a bachelors degree you will not be able to legally travel overseas to teach English. However, if you have a completed NQF Level 6 (a 3 year National Higher Diploma) or a 2 year Associate Degree or if you have completed the 1st & 2nd year of a bachelor degree you can apply to teach English in a Korean provincial public school on the TaLK Program.

TaLK posts are a great “soft landing” into teaching ESL as they only require 15 contact teaching hours per week leaving a lot of extra time for further study by correspondence to up-grade your qualifications to a bachelors degree or to complete your bachelor degree while earning a good salary with return ticket reimbursement, medical cover, a rent free apartment & great vacation time.

TaLK recruits every 6 months in Spring (Feb) and in Fall (Aug). Candidates are encouraged to apply early (4 - 5 months beforehand) to secure a contract before the intake is closed once all the vacancies are filled.

Note: If you are sending documents from outside of South Africa then please courier directly to the address in Seoul to expedite delivery. 

We will collate your documents for you even if some documents are delivered to the South African GoldKey office. 

Please avoid using the SA Post Office & Speed Services these are unreliable.
