Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Fewer Rich Korean Kids Go to School Abroad

This isn’t exactly new news but it is somewhat optimistic for the English instructor market as I mentioned before:

But I think it’s a huge factor.  With that extra cash that parents are saving from sending their kids abroad for a year or two, I’m willing to bet the farm that enrollments in hagwons in-country will rise.   Only a thought but makes sense, no?

Maybe if they sent their kids to Korean-heavy populations like Southern California and send them to the hagwons there, they would adapt better when they return to Korea?

This guy said that you don’t need to leave Korea to learn English which I somewhat disagree with (it’s all up to the person who wants to learn).

It seems like the article focused mainly on the affluent Gangnam/Seocho area so I’m sure that these guys have also seen a spike in enrollment over the past few years when studying abroad started to decline.
