So you’ve got the job, have moved (or are preparing to move) to Korea, and now you’re finally ready to start teaching! Teaching English as a second language is challenging, but can also be fun and rewarding. It’s best to always be prepared for anything–classes being cancelled, extra classes being thrown your way, or impromptu tutoring sessions. In order to stay prepared, here are some of our favorite sites that will help you along the way.
Teaching Resources & Lesson Plans
- Waygook: This site has a plethora of information about life in Korea, as well as downloadable lesson plans and teaching tips. You’ll need to register and make the required 5 posts or pay $10 before you can download the material. We think this is the most comprehensive site for lesson planning and getting advice about life in Korea.
- Boggles World ESL: This website has loads of lesson plans, including a lot of resources for teaching adults and higher-level speaking classes.
- Dave’s ESL Cafe: This site includes job boards, lesson plan ideas, extra materials for students and much more!
- Super Simple Songs: This site is great for finding easy songs for younger students.
- ESL-Kids: Here you’ll find a lot of worksheets, flashcards, songs and more to help teach younger kids and lower-level English students.
- The Arrival Store: This shop has a small selection of English-language games for ESL students.
I’m sure there are many more out there, but these are the ones we use most often. I hope you have found them helpful! Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions or comments.
