Teaching in Japan in my 30's
by Oren Schulman
(Tel Aviv, Israel)
I am currently finishing a degree in Chinese acupuncture in Israel, and have wanted to live in Japan for a few years now. I am American but have moved around quite a bit over the years. I lived in Thailand for 1 1/2 years studying Thai massage. I lived in the states, England and Israel. I realize my best bet at experiencing Japan is to teach English. I used to teach kung fu to children and loved it. I dont know how much different it would be to teach English, but would love to give it a go.
I will be 33 when i finish my studies. I already hold a BA in philosophy. I was wondering if this is too late to come to Japan to teach. I understand most TEFL teachers are in their 20's.
Thanks for your advice.
