TaLK is a Korean Government scholarship program known as Teach and Learn in Korea. The program’s main objective is to invite and train native English teachers and overseas Koreans to teach practical English in after-school classes at the rural elementary school.
Participants of the program, known as TaLK scholars, are given the opportunity for personal and professional enrichment through the duties & responsibilities set forth by the Korean Government. As English instructors, TaLK scholars will create original lesson plans for varying grade levels (i.e., first through sixth), and teach in the classroom with a Korean university student. As explorers fulfilling the “learning” part of the program’s mission, TaLK scholars are encouraged to travel around Korea to learn about the history, culture, language and people.
