Young native English speakers may come to teach and learn


By Oh Young-jin

The National Institute for International Education will recruit foreigners who want to teach English and learn about Korea (TaLK) for six months.

One hundred 100 will be recruited and applications should be made by June 20.

The applicants should hold citizenship of the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia and New Zealand or other English-speaking nations and have completed at least two years of a four-year college course.

For ethnic Koreans, living in these countries for at least eight years, being educated from primary and secondary to high school is required.


People wishing to participate can apply at
www.talk.go.kr.

Those who are selected will undergo an orientation session before being assigned across the nation. They will teach for 15 hours per week, and the institute will pay for round-trip tickets and a monthly stipend of 1.5 million won plus accommodation and health insurance.

The program was started in 2008 to provide native English teachers for elementary schools in remote areas where such an educational opportunity was unavailable.

Those recruited will be able to learn about Korea on weekends.
