Teach and Learn in Korea, also known as the TaLK Program, is a unique scholarship opportunity for undergraduates who are seeking a personal, professional and educational experience in Korea.
also known as the TaLK Program, is a unique scholarship opportunity for undergraduates who are seeking a personal, professional and educational experience in the Republic of Korea. It is designed to support public English education in the rural areas of Korea, where the access to higher quality educational resources are limited.
The TaLK Program is unique in many ways. It is only one of two government-sponsored English programs here in South Korea, and the only program that provides an opportunity for individuals with at least 2 years of post-secondary education to come to South Korea for an once-in-a-lifetime experience. In addition, under exceptional cases, individuals are able to choose a six-month commitment, with the normal requirement lasting one-year. All participants begin their scholarship term with an intensive orientation which provides a safe and supervised environment for our participants to adjust to their new surroundings. The training program provides the new Scholars with information on Korean culture, education, classroom management, practical teaching experience, and much more aimed at preparing the participants for both teaching, and living in Korea.
We provide benefits to our participants to ensure a comfortable living experience, and also time to pursue other personal interests. These benefits include, but are not limited to health insurance coverage, accommodations, entrance and exit allowance, and cultural experience field trips.
As of Fall 2020, there are around 200 active participants in the program. Since the inception of this program, over 3,500 individuals have received this Korean government scholarship. The TaLK Office accepts applications all-year-round, while the Korean Consulates, Embassies and Education Centers operate twice a year as our recruitment branch offices.
