Teaching English in Korea is a respectful profession. And South Korea overall is known as the most disciplined place. Since, over their English language is not at all common that’s why teaching Korean would be an amazing involvement. Since private schools expect your 100% and in return, they won’t even give you 50% so I would go for Government or Public schools. Because comparatively private schools’ public schools have more benefits. Benefits as in you have to do less work you can deal with one class having more students, more vacations, more salaries and what not. But the point over here is it is really quite difficult to get selected in Government Schools so for that prepare yourself well enough I would advice you that.

Firstly, the most important you should have a passport of English-speaking country because without that they won’t accept you as a teacher. Second, again a basic one which is you should have a degree of a bachelor in any field from any university of at least +3 years. Third and the last one would be getting TEFL certificate is a must in order of being a certified teacher.

For teaching they pay very high may be less than some other countries but the benefits they with it are incomparable. You will get the benefits of free tax, an apartment to live in, food, transport and what not. There are a lot of benefits with quite solid amount of pay in South Korea for teaching.
