Hello English Teachers!
Welcome to Teach Today and our first ever blog post!
What is Teach Today?
Well, let’s start with what we are not! We are not another ESL job listings website. We are not a recruitment agency. And we are not trying to sell TEFL training courses!
We are a small team of teachers and tech startup entrepreneurs in Seoul on a mission to change the ESL/EFL world. Teaching English abroad is such a great experience and we love the opportunities it brings to people all across the world but we see lots of problems in the industry, especially for teachers. We believe that many of these problems can be solved using the modern tools and technology of today.
What are we offering?
We have some big ideas and long term plans but it is still early days for us. Changing the industry will take some time and so we are taking it step-by-step. Our first step is the launch of our Resource Center on our homepage.
There are two sections to our Resource Center – the Listings Directory and the Blogs & Guides.
The Listings Directory is a curated list of websites and online platforms for each ESL/EFL region. When searching for information about teaching English abroad online, we found that Google does not always come up with the most up-to-date and useful sites, and often teacher communities from Facebook & Reddit don’t show up. So, we scoured the web and listed up job sites, recruitment agencies, teacher communities, schools and academies, government sites, teacher blogs, and local lifestyle & travel sites to make it easier for teachers to find information. Unlike other similar online ESL lists, we will continue to add sites to our directory and make sure it is updated with the latest information.
Blogs & Guides
The idea behind this section is to provide information and content about teaching abroad that is interesting, insightful and easier to consume than a lot of the existing materials online which can often be quite dull and dry to read. As we are based in South Korea, to start with our posts will focus on teaching in Korea and later we plan to provide insights into other markets.
