Working in Japan
Ask your job-related questions and share your experiences in this section.
I'm 24 years old from the UK and I have had a huge interest in Japan ever since I was young,
this includes the culture, people, language, anime, food, buildings and nature etc.. I was even
lucky enough to visit Japan (Tokyo,Kyoto,Osaka,Fujigoko) last year on my own for 2 weeks and it was just a dream!
I am now interested in getting a job there preferably teaching English but I want to know the best way to go about it. I have heard about TEFL courses and I have looked into them a bit but I would love to know which courses are the best to do and how I would go about actually getting a job in a school there. I would also love to use the opportunity to learn Japanese whilst I am over there as I only know basic words..
If anyone has any advice for me that would be just great whether you have experience in the situation or not it would be great to chat with you. I would be interested in schools outside of Tokyo but also would be happy...
