A doctoral degree, with experience taken into account but not required.

We prefer candidates who have degrees in education, English, TEFL, or linguistics.

Teaching experience at the primary- or secondary-school level is also acceptable, as long as it required a government-issued teaching license.

What is the job?

You’ll be teaching in the General English Language (GEL) program at Woosong. That means:

Teaching first- and second- year classes in speaking, listening, reading, and writing, as well as elective courses and advanced English skills classes in our Global Business Communication Skills (GBCS) program;

With around 100 EFL faculty members, there are many opportunities to be involved in campus life. Our professors teach up to 20 hours per week and are required to keep office hours from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm, Monday-Friday.

What are the benefits? 

In addition to your salary, you will receive:

A pay raise every two years, which is based on your job performance. New teachers are eligible for a raise after completing two years of employment. Annual performance-based bonuses may also be available. These are both based on your annual performance evaluation (APE) score.
