I started a 140 combined TEFL course earlier this week and would love to go and teach in South Korea.
I have done a bit of research and found that it is extremely hard as most schools only accept people who have an E2 visa, who is only issued to people holding a passport from an English speaking country.
Big problem for me as I have a Belgian passport even though my English is fluent (have been living in Ireland for 2.5 years and I use English on a daily basis in and out of work).
I am really set on going to South Korea (Seoul to be more specific) and even though it won't be easy I do believe I will be able to make it if I really persist. If there is a will, there is a way!
Does anyone have some advice, contacts, similar experience whatsoever? Please share or contact me if you do.
