TEFL Q&A: Do I Need a TEFL to Teach with EPIK in South Korea?

TEFL Q&A: Do I Need a TEFL to Teach with EPIK in South Korea?
Flickr Photo by cdnsue For the past two decades, South Korea has been one of the top destinations in the world for ESL teachers. In addition to offering one of the highest salaries in the business, schools in South Korea offer free housing, free flights, and insurance benefits, among other perks. Over the past year, Asian ESL destinations such as Taiwan and China have been moving towards making a TEFL certification mandatory in their hiring practices. A large number of schools in Taiwan these days are looking for teachers with experience and/or a TEFL certification. Meanwhile, the Chinese government has cracked down on requirements for teachers bound for first-tier cities like Shanghai and Beijing by requesting that teachers be 24 years of age, have a TEFL certification and two years of experience post-graduation, one of which must be formal teaching experience. While it is still possible to find employment in Shanghai and Beijing, it’s likely that teachers that do not meet these requirements are not teaching on a proper working Z visa. This fall, the Korean government made some major changes to their EPIK program, a program that hires ESL teachers for Korean public schools across the country. Teachers with [...]Read More

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan Day Trip to Wulai

Event Recap: RTT Taiwan Day Trip to Wulai

I want to give a BIG thank you to everyone who showed up to the RTT September event; I couldn’t have asked for a better turnout! The day began with over 20 of us lined up to grab the bus to Wulai. Since there were so many of us we couldn’t fit on the first bus and had to wait to get the next one. Luckily we all fit on the second bus, but had to stand the entire forty minute journey with jerky turns and winding roads.   Stepping of the bumpy bus was a relief, but I found many people asking me, “What do we do now?” I should have warned everyone that this was my first time in Wulai as well, so I was just as clueless as everyone else on where to start. I was saved by the maps and signs guiding novice travelers where to go. The town itself is quaint and charming, surrounded by beautiful mountain views. However, the main road in town is filled with tourist traps—snacks, trinkets, and goodies—but we quickly passed through trying to catch a glimpse of the famous waterfall. Once we made the twenty minute trek uphill to the […]

Reach to Teach Taiwan September Event: Day Trip to Wulai

Reach to Teach Taiwan September Event: Day Trip to Wulai

The past two RTT events have been held at bars around the city, and as much as I love a good night out, I think it’s about time we get the crew together for a day trip! Just south of Taipei, Wulai is a small aboriginal village famous for its hot springs, hiking, and waterfalls. I haven’t been there before, but I’ve been told it’s a must see in Taiwan.   One of the main attractions is the Wulai Waterfall, about a 30-minute walk from the base of the village. Not in the mood to walk? No problem. There’s a gondola that takes you up to the top of the mountain with beautiful views of the waterfall. (NT 220) In addition to the waterfall, there are numerous trails for hiking if anyone’s up for it. Personally, I would love to try a soak in the public hot springs, so bring your bathing suit just in case! And right at the base of the village is an open air market on Wulai Old Street with shops and places to eat.   I will keep an eye out on the weather, but let’s hope for some sun 🙂   WHEN: Sunday, September 18th   MEET: 11:00am at Xindian MRT Station […]
