Far East, South Korea
Continuing Education Center (Andong English Village)
Full Time Position: Andong, Korea
Secure Position at Andong English Village Offered by City Government
Imagine working in an authentic English Village and living in the heart of Korea. If you’re interested in working in a dynamic, challenging, and rewarding environment, look no further than the Andong English Village (AEV). Our Village is not a private hagwon, but a semi-public school subsidized by the Andong City Government and operated by the Andong National University Continuing Education Center (ANUCEC).
Andong English Village (AEV) is an English language program which is sponsored by the City of Andong. Modeled after an English-speaking town, AEV provides situational based learning to primary and secondary students from the public schools in Andong and from nearby regional areas. The school is unique in that it offers several different venues in which Korean students can practice speaking English in a real environment, instead of using the outmoded method of rote memorization and exams. We are currently looking for teachers who can join our outstanding team.
Andong is located 1 hour north of Daegu, 2 hours east of Daejeon, and 3 hours southeast of Seoul. Unlike Seoul, Andong retains and promotes a great deal of Korean culture. There are museums, culture centers, temples, and other attractions including Hahoe Folk Viallge that allow foreign visitors to immerse themselves in 'the land of the morning calm.' Also, it annually hosts the internationally famous ‘Andong Mask Dance Festival’ which is praised as ‘the best festival in Korea’
Our facility lies inside the Andong National University campus, which makes it convenient to stop by the university fitness center (complete with swimming pool) or one of the many restaurants during your free time. We are not an 'English amusement park.' Every week, we provide about 80 students (roughly 14 per/class) weekly an 'English only' environment equipped with 22 situational classrooms, a mini basketball court and a mini-field for sports activities. We place a strong emphasis on a real academic learning experience. We have a very supportive staff that is committed to making your stay in Korea the best possible.
Qualified, cheerful and interactive teachers who can work as part of a team are always enthusiastically welcomed. We look forward to your interest in working with us and enjoying our EXCELLENT working facilities. Thank you.
