Language Bound: Searching for instructors

Event date: 2014-01-15

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.     Lastly, we are looking for someone with the heart and enthusiasm working with children. 

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

Further details can be shared via email at languagebound@inkas.org.

Qualifications:

- Korean adoptee from overseas

- Proficient English Speaker

- Being able to work 2pm-6pm weekdays; 4 teaching hours per week (Class schedule is not fixed yet)

- Committed and dependable work attitude

Required Documents:

- Resume

- A letter of introduction(Write in either English or your native language)

- Document which is reliable proof of the highest level of educational attainment (e.g high school diploma)

- 1 letter of recommendation (Download template docx-file or pdf-file)

Application Process

1) Resume and other documents submission → 2) Interview → 3) Training

* The training will consists of 1 night and 2 days of Training Camp and 1 week of Training and Preparation. Both of them will be held in February and will be non-paid (Therefore, hired Language Bound instructors will be paid from March). During Training and Preparation, the teachers will develop teaching materials for the first semester, give a lecture in front of other teachers based on what they learn at Training Camp, and do pre-visiting local children welfare centers in their location.

How to Apply

Please submit 1) resume, 2) document proving your highest educational attainment, 3) 1 letter of recommendation to languagebound@inkas.org.

Application Filing Deadline: February 2, 2014
