"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20.


Samyook SDA Language School is one of the leading language institutes in South Korea and operated by our very own Adventist church. With 12 different locations throughout Korea, the language school employs over 50 native speaking teachers to not only teach English but to also share the gospel of Jesus with students who might attend. Not only are you able to teach others about Jesus, but you will also be able to experience Korean culture in a way you would miss as a tourist. With deeply developed connections and the ability to learn an additional language, by serving at SDALS you can grow and develop while you help others grow in education and in Christ.

Volunteers are responsible for paying for and making their own meals. Each of the faculty housing locations has a kitchen with basic appliances for food prep.

Housing is provided with basic furnishings. Utilities and maintenance fees are the responsibility of the volunteer.

Volunteer housing is 10-15 minute walk away from the school locations. Travel outside of that will be the responsibility of the volunteer. Korea has a very reliable public transportation system and has many opportunities for travel during free times.

Airfare: SDALS will provide a $600 airfare stipend for every 12 months of service.

An additional 20,000 KRW ($15.70 USD) is given for each class hour taught above the contracted 240 hours per term.
