What is a hagwon?

A Hagwon is a school in South Korea where Koreans, usually children, go to learn English and are taught by Korean and foreign, native English-speaking instructors.  While there are hagwons in and outside of Korea that teach subjects other than English, this web site will focus only on the English language hagwons within South Korea.

Hagwons.com is not a recruitment site or an intermediary between teachers and hagwons.  We are a resource where future, present and former teachers can research hagwons for potential employment, trade stories, ideas and advice and learn from each other about teaching English in South Korea.


Hagwons.com is a place where you will find hagwon ratings, new jobs and other important resources. More information can be found in our FAQ.


If you are thinking of teaching English in South Korea, sign up and head to the message boards.  Post your questions, ideas and concerns and hopefully you’ll be teaching before too long.

Thank you!
