Probably been asked this a million times, but...

Hello Um...Whomever,

I'm still straddling the sophomore/freshman fence in college right now. And I've been set on teaching in Japan. My major is English/Education, difference of 4 classes. I was wondering, what classes can I take, beside Japanese, that will prepare me? Is there something that employers will look for?

Thank you,
Kassandra

TEFL
by: Kevin Burns

Hi Kassandra,

Anything that will teach you how to teach. TEFL,TESL or TESOL. TEFL stands for teaching
English as a foreign Language. You don`t have to
take these at university however. There are many institutions that offer classes and will give you
a certificate at the end.

Another idea is taking Japanese History to get an idea of what this country is all about.l

But what will impress employers are courses like
TESL/TEFL etc as they will give you some instruction
in how to teach English.
