Woosong is one of the largest employers of English teachers in South Korea, with over 100 international EFL teachers. Set against the mountains of Daejeon, Woosong has a student body of nearly 6000 students from South Korea and the rest of the world. Our students study a wide range of subjects, including Railroad Engineering, Culinary Arts, Multimedia, and Social Welfare. The foreign faculty at Woosong work with all of these departments and, although teaching English is their main duty, they often undertake many other roles.
University and college students come from all over Korea; most of our students live in and around Daejeon. Student needs range from beginning English lessons to advanced adult conversation classes. General education courses are the norm, but Woosong also offers English for Specific Purpose (ESP) classes, covering such specialties as business conversation and writing. At WLI, we also teach middle school students as well as kids.
It’s this diversity of our student body that makes a Woosong job challenging but interesting.
If you enjoy teaching in different environments to various students, then WLI is definitely the workplace of choice!
