Make the most of your adventure. Meet new like-minded friends. Speak with the locals. Buy a motorcycle. Taste the kimchi. Travel every weekend.

Live it up.

Come on! We dare you!


We’ve been placing graduates from around the world in teaching jobs in South Korea since 2009 and have grown to become one of the premier ESL recruiters for Korea today.

Teaching English in Korea is one of the most rewarding things you could ever do; it not only allows you to experience such an amazing culture, travel the world and meet new friends but it also allows you to save lots of money to pay off student debts, save for a down payment on your first house or just to splurge and enjoy the disposable income!

All of us have taught in Korea. We’ve lived in Korea. We’ve done the same thing you are thinking of doing right now. We appreciate the adventure in the experience but still understand the challenges of moving abroad. And we do everything we can to make your experience the adventure of a lifetime you’re looking for.

Choosing a recruiter that has your best interests at heart is increasingly difficult in the Korean ESL market.

The good news is we aren’t your run of the mill Korean recruiters! Ex-pat owned , all of us have lived and taught in Korea before so we know the ropes. Just read the reviews on-line and you’ll know you are in safe hands with us!

My experience with SKR was flawless. I was attracted to them by good reviews on various TEFL forums, and went with them due to their easily navigated, straightforward website. If you’re thinking about giving the teaching in Korea thing a shot, use SKR and it will all be such a breeze.

I also wanted to let you know that I have been recommending Say Kimchi to anyone interested in teaching in South Korea. If Say Kimchi ever needs new testimonials from teachers they have placed, I would be more than happy to write a few lines or submit a photo of one of the millions of awesome places I have visited since I have been in the country.
