Far East, South Korea
POLY's returnee students are those who have studied overseas for at least a year in an English-based school and who have acquired an excellent command of the English language, often times speaking as fluently as native speakers. POLY's non-returnee students have achieved a very high level of English ability while studying in Korea. They have tested at a level which proves they can function in an overseas English-based classroom at their level. Each year Poly graduates many students into some of the top ranked foreign language middle schools and high schools in Korea, a goal of many of our students.
We have been awarded a Best Brand award from Korea Times as the top school in Junior Education for the past eight years. POLY students have won numerous awards in national English aptitude tests, and every student must pass a strict entrance test before being allowed to join our academy.

The ideal applicant:
The ideal applicant holds a degree in Education, English, Communications, or Linguistics. It is best if he/she has some teaching experience, or at least experience working with young children. He/she is a blend of 3 main ingredients: love, discipline, and intelligence. Korean children are a bit more fragile than their Western cousins, and a little love goes a long way. We used to describe this quality as gentleness, but found that teachers can appear gentle without giving themselves to students, so we emphasize that the teachers must really care for the students. Discipline is required not only to keep up our tight schedule, but also to keep your students disciplined (while still remaining gentle!). There are SO many reasons why intelligence is required, but we hope most are obvious. He/she knows that this is a job and not a vacation, despite being far from home. Many people make EFL a career, and we expect such dedication. Above all else, he/she must love being around children because that is what it’s all about. Additional required qualities are self-motivation, inquisitiveness, punctuality, a desire for learning, and professionalism.
