About ESL Land

Travel the world teaching English

One Teacher at a time

Spreading knowledge across the world

ESL Land started up in 2011. For teachers by teachers on an epic journey across the world teaching English. Since our start, we’ve been on the greatest journey ever since.

Teachers ourselves, helping educators see the world, expand minds and be all they can be. Nothing can be more fruitful, life changing and rewarding as stepping into a classroom knowing that you could inspire the next Steve Jobs. 

From our beginnings as ESL TEFL and Teacher recruitment startup, to spreading our books on classroom management, travel teaching, our first professional development course for teachers, we’ve stayed true to our mission: to create a world where knowledge is accessible to everyone and every student experiences the power of a great teacher and realizes their full potential because of it.

I am happy

I made a life changing decision and I couldn’t be happier.

I couldn’t be happier with my job right now. It was suppose to be a one year spent in South Korea to get more experience before going back to the states, 3 years later, I am still teaching in Korea and loving every minute of it. The step by step guidance I got from other Teachers at ESL Land and their staff is second to none from landing the job to landing in Korea. I was scared, nervous and inexperienced in travel, they made it into an experience I wish I had had the courage to dive into much earlier. Thank you
