The KOTESOL International Community is the home for members who reside & work outside of the Republic of Korea (South Korea).
All members of KOTESOL should join their preferred chapter so that chapters receive their share of membership dues. The "Dues Share" is the primary source of funding for local events. While members residing in Korea may select their preferred chapter regardless of their residence or work place, international members are expected to join the International Community.
All KOTESOL members receive printed materials through the Korean Postal Service. As postal rates are considerably higher for international shipping, our International members pay a higher membership dues rate and the International Community does not receive a share of dues.
The International Community does not presently host events, nor does it send a representative to the National Council. International members are eligible for all other member benefits.
