Expert Debate & English Teachers Wanted in Seoul

Leaders Academy manages English and debate programs.

Our debate program is very competitive, having coached many middle school and high school students to success in national and international tournaments. The debate program extends to speech, Model United Nations and mock trial. We make students better critical thinkers and more active in their engagement. The main objective is to have students do well in competition.

Our Honors program offers gifted students a chance to advance their English even further through thematic instruction. The reading/speaking teacher examines reading skills, written assessments, discussion, and public speaking. The writing teacher examines essay structure, grammar, sentence structure, and creative writing. This is NOT an ESL job, but an after-school program to keep advanced English speakers ahead in English.

Because our programs are popular, but highly selective, we began offering a Bridges program at the start of 2011. For students that just barely miss our selection criteria, they go through a 3-6 month Bridges program to prepare them for Debate or Honors.
