TEN SLEEP - A Wyoming company that teaches Korean college students conversational English through advanced telecommunication hopes to add 250 teaching jobs to the Big Horn Basin by the end of the year.

Kent Holiday, president and founder of Ten Sleep-based Eleutian, has been offering one-on-one teaching to students from Seoul University, a South Korea cyber college with 12,000 students, since June 2006.

He currently has enough staff to offer the class to 360 students through Seoul University but hopes to offer it to more students in the future.

Holiday and the presidents of Seoul University and Northwest College plan to write up a memorandum of understanding in the near future, according to the Northern Wyoming Daily News. Seoul University hopes these courses will become accredited and transferable to the United States. In turn, Northwest will help recruit and train teachers for the company.
