  1. got an ESL job in China for almost 2 years and am ready to pack up my things for seoul. just looking for someone to be a sponsor, so i could get an E7 visa from here.

    hope this phil-korean program can help. thanks!

  2. Sorry, but you need to have an F2 or F5 visa and an ACR ID to qualify for the job. So its not meant for people living outside Korea.

  3. Hi!

    I found your site from another food blog that listed one of your recipes for sitaw. I am also a Filipina living here in Korea but I’m married to an American. It would be nice to correspond with you. I have a hard time finding Filipino vegetables like sitaw and okra here. I hope to hear from you soon.

  4. Hi Betchay,

    I felt the need to go to your blog once more to share a good news to our Pinoys in South Korea. RIVERMAYA IS FINALLY COMING OVER TO PERFORM IN KOREA! This will be on December 16, 2006, Saturday, 7 pm at the Jongha Gymnasium in Ulsan Industrial City. Tickets are at 25,000 KRW.This rock concert is for the benefit of the Ulsan Association of Filipinos. I know Ulsan is quite far from Seoul where most of your bloggers are based but I do hope to see some of you there especially so that this is the first time that Rivermaya is performing in Korea. So, hope to see you. And please spread the word around. Thanks.
    Peace!

  5. In the wake of North Korea’s first successful nuclear test, The Washington Post’s PostGlobal and Oxford International Review are sponsoring exclusive blog responses to a question posed by former South Korean President and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Kim Dae-Jung:
    Why do you think the current US Administration has refused direct negotiations with North Korea, despite North Korea’s proposal to do so?

    OIR posed this question to a panel of students from the United States and Asia gathered at Hong Kong University to participate in the Asia Institute for Political Economy, a program conducted by The Fund for American Studies. Click here to read their commentary, in light of recent events: http://blog.washingtonpost.com/postglobal/debate/korea/

    Because of your interest in the region, you are invited to join the conversation and pose questions to our panel. OIR and PostGlobal would love your input.

    It would be nice if tickets would be available in Seoul so that we would be assured of a seat. Most likely, I would come. Just make sure that Rivermaya plays their old hits (Elise!)

    Sitaw (stringbeans?) are sold at Hyehwa during Sundays (you know, the ambulant Filipino market near the catholic church). Take line no. 4, get off at Hyehwa station (one station away from Dongdaemun)

  7. Hi Ms. Betchay,

    In lieu of this job post (i know this comment is a bit late), may i also ask if it is possible for Filipinos (BS grad from top 3 prestigious schools but no teaching experience) to secure an English teaching job (or an assistant english teaching job) in seoul?

    Many thanks and i wish you and you family a healthy, successful 2007.

  8. im now teaching here in south korea..i want to experience another teaching opportunities..can you help?contact me via email..thanks!mabuhay!

  9. Hi!

    This is somewhat related to the English teacher job, but we are a start-up company from the Philippines teaching English through phone and internet (voice chat).

    We’re looking for people who could join our marketing/ recruitment team based in Korea. This is a part-time job, a good way to earn extra income.

    Send us an email if anyone’s interested for more details at englishguide@yahoo.com. Thanks!

  12. Attention to all Koreans Schools in South and Nort Korea!

    You know what, be practical. Frankly speaking, why are you hired Native English Teachers?hahahah.funny! The U.S, London, Australia, Canada and other countries are looking and hiring teachers from Philippines. And you don’t need pay very expensive salary inorder that your student learn and speak english well. You can find the very good english teacher only in the Philippines. It is proven and tested that philippine teacher is the best in terms of teaching method.

  13. To all the readers kindly please pass my message to all korean school in korea.This is a serious message and please don’t ignore this, it is good to your countrymen to accept the reality. How could you hired native english teacher if the student lock of knowledge in english alphabet.

  14. To Mr. Jake Graves:

    Yes, I completely agree with you because I’m a Filipino. However, you really have bad English and you spelled “lack” as “lock”. So how can you convince Korea that Filipinos are the best people to teach English? If they happen to read your message, I’m certain Korea will conclude that it’s, indeed, better to hire native English speakers. Check your grammar and spelling.

    1. Although you posted this a year ago but I would love to repy. Please be kind in giving your comments. Nobody’s perfect even the smartest person make mistakes. Lock and lack has no big difference. I always experience it, most especially if I’m writing governs by my emotion. Being a good teacher doesn’t mean you should be perfect but I think a good teacher is an authentic encourager. Intead of pulling someone down please help them boost thier confidence.

  15. I know that Mr. Graves’ English was not that good but being Filipinos we must respect each other. If we’ve found out that our countrymen is not that capable we must only correct him. Don’t be “CRAB THINKERS”. “Kaya tayo hindi umuunlad dito pa lang sa blog na ito, nagsisraan na kayo. Malay nyo “typographical error” lang yan. AMINADO AKO MAHINA SIYA MAG -ENGLISH, pero sana i-correct niyo na lang. Wag niyo na i-down. Nakakahiya nag i- ingles kayo dito nakikita ng mga ibang foreigners.

    ITo ay isa lamang sa mga problema nating mga FILIPINO kaya hindi tayo maunlad. Kung ang gobyerno ay may kasalanan sa paghihirap natin, sa palagay ko “LAHAT” tayo may kasalanan dahil hindi tayo nagtutulungan.

    CRAB MENTALITY– ito ay isa lang sa sumisira sa atin. Pwede ba nating i-reform ito?

    1. Mas mahalaga nga po na may malasakit tayo sa kapwa Pilipino natin kaysa sa karunungan sa Ingles. Salamat, Sonsaengnim Mac!

  26. @ seonsaengnim mak

    I think you are overreacting. I dont see any tinge of crab mentality in the posts that followed after him. First, how did you know that this Jake Graves is indeed a filipino?

  27. Hello! I am interested in applying for a teaching position in Korea, but I do not have visa. Is it still possible to get there and work then?

    By the way, I saw the blog comment about someone who kind of insulted Mr. Graves’ English. I agree with mak. We Filipinos should quit on crab mentality. It will not take us farther.

I would be interested if you could offer me one. Please send me a message in my email address. Thank you

      1. Why? how good in teaching English language are these native speakers? What strategies and techniques in language learning/teaching do these natives have learned? Who can claim that they are native speakers? In learning English language, does it have to sound as in speaking like native Americans or British and lost one’s nationality? Is it the ultimate end in English language learning? like imitating without understanding?

        Is it ok if a newly graduate English teacher teach you even without licence yet? Or a graduate of any course? Because, that amount is just for their level. But, not for professionals.

    3. Hi there.

      I’m a graduating English teacher. I’d like to practice my English teaching via the internet and meet Korean friends and learn from them as well. I have Korean nephew, about 6 years old, and we’ve got communication problems. I want to teach him English but I don’t know Korean.Jejeje. I think I have to learn Korean first to effectively teach him English. I arrive to an idea to get in touch with Korean adults for language exchange. I am looking for Koreans, who are willing to improve their English and willing to help me learn Korean, even a little. Seriously, I’ll focus on my English teaching with you, above all. If you’re to rate my English, 10 is the highest, I’m on rate 9. I can pronounce English words very well and my grammar is above average. I’m very much willing to teach via SKYPE, or yahoo messenger for FREE. It’s my purpose to share what I have learned to those who are interested learners of English.

  37. good day!

    we all hope that the Korean government will change its educational policy especially hiring Filipino teachers for ESL. In fact, many Filipinos are overqualified to teach the English language. They have high English proficiency and great deal of professionalism. I do hope that in the near future Korea will open its country to Filipino teachers since they have the skill and experience to teach the second language ( English)

  43. Hi. Im a Nursing Graduate and presently teaching English to High School students here in Seoul, South korea. If you want to teach here i suggest that you go directly to a recruitment center rather than just browsing the internet because some of them are fraud or scam and sometimes they will advertise that they dont accept non-native speakers. I went on a recruitment that was held in Shangrila Hotel in Ortigas last July 2009. It is a recruitment office from South Korea, they are visiting Manila once a year to recruit english tachers. Fortunately, i got a job offer from them since I have a call center experience for one year. I far as I know they will be visiting Manila on December 2010. I do not know the exact date and the place, just keep listening or watching news because sometimes they announce it .

    1. Hi RN! I hope you don’t mind me asking but what is your visa? I think that would help others who would like to come here to teach.

    1. Hi ms RN,, im ms tin ^^
      very interested with your post,, by the way what is the name of the recruitment agency that you mentioned.. you are true,, ostly in the internet they would say that only native speakers are allowed so I feel reluctant.

      I have my Tesol cert earned here in Makati so I wanted to make use of it,,

      Best regards to you,, I’ll be visiting Incheon this december as tourist. Hopefully I get to contact the agency,if ever they announce in the news, who knows ^^

      Thanks

  54. I experienced being a camp teacher for Korean junior and university students while studying in college. After graduation, I became an EFL teacher for Korean university students (man-to-man and group classes) then moved to a Korean online company after a year. I’ve been working as an online English teacher for almost 2 years now. I’ve been dreaming of working in Korea, but I think it would be hard for me to fulfill that dream. It’s difficult for a non-native English speaker like me.

  55. I want to work in South Korea as an English teacher but its very expensive. Does anyone here know how to work in Korea without spending such a big amount of money? Kindly send me a message via globe. Here is my digit: 0927-962-9920.
    I’ve been teaching in one of the prestigious International Language School here in the Philippines for almost a year now. -Teacher Blue
