Title Can I work for a shorter period of time? Are the contracts always one year?
작성일 2009-05-23
All overseas teaching positions are for a 12 month period. The school invests a lot of money into hiring an ESL teacher. Between the flight, visa process, training, and housing fees, they put quite an investment in every teacher they hire. It would not make financial sense for them to hire someone for a short term, only to have to turn around and do it all over again.

The kids also get attached to their teacher and it takes a while for you to get to know the kids. Every time a teacher starts there is an adaption period. The directors prefer to keep this consistent so the children’s learning is not interrupted.
