What do I need to teach in Japan if I am from England.
by Keith Morrell
Hello, Good Morning or Good Afternoon.
I am looking to travel over to Japan to work as soon as possible. I spent three weeks in Japan earlier this year, and I would like to get over to Japan to work as either a teacher, or to work in an office.
I am wondering what I would need to do to be able to teach. I would love to live in Odawara, Yokohama or Tokyo.
At the moment I have no qualification in English apart from school grade's. I'm a 23 year old English Designer who has a HND in Graphic Design and 5 years experience within the design industry.
I am unsure if I need to do a TEFL course as I have no experience with teaching, apart from teaching friends over in Japan how to speak English.
From September this year I will be enrolling on an Japanese course and also a Batchelor's Degree as I think I will need this qualification to work in Japan.
I hope you are having a great day and that you can help me.
