Information Session Scheduled: Teach English in Korea

TaLK and EPIK are pro­grams spon­sored by the Repub­lic of Korea gov­ern­ment that pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties to teach Eng­lish in Korea.

TaLK (Teach and Learn in Korea) is a schol­ar­ship pro­gram whose main objec­tive is to invite and train native Eng­lish teach­ers and over­seas Kore­ans to teach prac­ti­cal Eng­lish in after-school class­es in rur­al ele­men­tary schools.

EPIK (Eng­lish Lan­guage Pro­gram in Korea), affil­i­at­ed to the Kore­an Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion, Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy, has the mis­sions to improve the Eng­lish speak­ing abil­i­ties of stu­dents and teach­ers in Korea, to devel­op cul­tur­al exchanges, and to reform Eng­lish teach­ing method­olo­gies in Korea.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the TaLK office in Seoul will con­duct an infor­ma­tion ses­sion for those who may be inter­est­ed in these two pro­grams on Fri­day, Octo­ber 28, 2011. The ses­sion will take place from 2:15 to 3:00 p.m. in the Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies audi­to­ri­um.
