Teach and Learn in Korea (TaLK) program
The primary goal of The Teach and Learn in Korea (TaLK) program is to encourage young, adventurous college students and recent graduates to teach English to elementary school students living in the rural areas of South Korea. Through the TaLK program, individuals are able to gain personal and professional enrichment through teaching.
The TaLK program gives individuals the opportunity to learn about the many facets of Korean culture and find time to travel to distinct regions of the Korean peninsula. While in Korea, individuals teach English in after-school classes Monday through Friday, teaching an average of nine hours a week. Individuals are expected to prepare teaching materials and activities for English-language education. The TaLK program provides financial assistance by awarding individuals a stipend and an entrance/exit allowance. In addition, individuals are provided with international health insurance, housing and other benefits.
Cheongju University, a sister university of Saint Martin’s in Korea, helps facilitate this program for SMU students.
