North Korea


The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) extends only a few invitations to foreign organizations. No more than 100 Westerners are currently in Pyongyang, their capital city. Yet for the last ten years, ELIC has engaged in teacher training and English language instruction in middle schools and universities.

Each year, our team has grown—from four teachers a decade ago to teams of more than twenty ELIC teachers, working with up to 400 Korean teachers and thousands of students in recent months. Amazing!

Students have little exposure to English speakers, so they were surprised by their own affection and respect for ELIC teachers. “We now know that you love us and that you’re here for us,” said one Korean teacher.

Celebrate the small victories we are having in North Korea and investigate if your place is with these pioneer teachers making an impact in a mysterious place.
