Teaching in South Korea

I was just offered a teaching position for a year, starting in June, teaching at ILS English Academy for $2,310/month. This school is about 30 minutes away from Seoul. I feel like this could be an amazing opportunity. But before I signed a contract, I would love some feedback. Does this seem reputable? What other questions should I ask? Is there a way to talk to other people from US to meet up while I am over there for some backpacking or something? I hope to hear some feedback soon :o)

From the details you gave, it seems kosher. I especially like the location because you're not putting up with the problems associated with living in Seoul, but you're close enough that you can visit when you want. But, to find out about your particular school, you will probably need to speak to someone who is currently working there.

Lots of Korean job discussion can be found at Dave's ESL Cafe. Good luck!

2.3 Million Won per month sounds OK. I assume you have also been offered some benifits.
