I want to teach English in Japan. Where do I start?
(Colombo, Sri Lanka)
Hi, I have worked in the NGO (Non-Governmental Organizations) sector for approximately 10 years and would like to take a break. The NGO sector is usually referred to as the Not For Profit sector, and while I enjoy my work in this field, I do feel the need for a change.
I am a native speaker of English. I say this because I think and dream in English :) Ok, so it may not be a dictionary definition, but I guess you understand what I mean. My Secondary Education, University Education, as well as my Post Graduate education was completely in English.
I have taught Information Technology, at the Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology to put myself through college - and I found it to be a rich experience. I also know some basic Japanese words and phrases and can identify many of the hiragana and katakana characters. I would be willing to learn more Japanese if needed.
I have read a lot about teaching English in Japan, and I look forward to the opportunity to do the same. I hope that writing this query to you will be the beginning of my new adventure! :)
