Language Bound: Searching for Korean Adoptee English Instructors
Language Bound is a social enterprise that teaches English to children from impoverished backgrounds. As much as knowing English is an asset measured for today’s success in Korea, affording English courses are often reserved for the upper class. By offering higher education of English to low-income children, Language Bound’s goal is to offset Korea’s educational social imbalance while creating more jobs dedicated to Korean adoptees.
What Language Bound is looking for?
Unlike most English institutes many experienced English teachers are familiar with, empirical experience shows that our program differs greatly.
1. Prepare to be patient with many of these children for it may be their first time receiving extra-curricular education apart from school.
2. Acknowledge the difference of the working environment in comparison to other teaching experiences. Language Bound is an institutionalized combination of educational and humanitarian group effort to help expose children to the larger global world.
3. We look for one’s maturity, dependability and commitment not only as employees to Language Bound, but also as teachers to young children in classroom settings.
4. We are looking for someone with the heart and enthusiasm working with children.
5. Finally, you should be available from August to December 2015
What you will find with Language Bound?
No previous teaching experience is needed. Language Bound will train instructors to become competent teacher with our newly adopted teaching method.
If you choose so, we will offer 3 specific work benefits. Hired Language Bound instructors will receive
1) 600,000 KRW per month (16 teaching hours)
2) free Teacher’s Training course, especially on storytelling
3) priority acceptance in all service offered by InKAS
