URGENT!!! need feedback on job offer in South Korea!!

Unread postby TommyJ » 30 Oct 2013, 00:50

I have been offered a job in Gimhea City, Korea
So far I know that housing is provided (not sure how much rent ill be paying.). Monthly salary is 1.9 KRW. 18 to19 times teaching for four days,. Elementary class : 3 times, Elementary hour : 45 minutes
Middle school Class : 2 times, Middle school hour :
the severance pay is equal to one month's salary.
airfare is provided. starts on the 29th of November.

He has also stated that his past English teachers have been working there for 2 to 3 years, essentialy demonstrating to me that it's a good position.

Can anyone who is more experienced finding work, PLEASE give me Feedback ASAP on this? It seems tempting, but i'm unsure. Is there anything else I should ask him? I am hoping to find working conditions and living conditions that are good and affordable.

I don't want to mention the School, out of respect, but I think it's a private school.
I looked the school up online and couldn't find anything.

Just further update my situation. He said he would pay for my rent allowance. Is this common?

Can't remember what a typical salary is in Korea, but covering rent and bonuses when you leave are typical. Can the owner put you in contact with previous or other current teachers?
