Teach English in Japan
"For decades, North Americans have been tempted to spend a year or two working in Japan, where English commands an almost reverential respect. The demand for language tuition remains strong in Japan, although recession in the late 1990s resulted in the closure of some major companies when fewer Japanese people were willing to pay for expensive English lessons. Consequently, competition for teaching jobs in Japan has become more acute. Be prepared to spend a sizeable sum of money while conducting the job hunt because of the high cost of living in Japanese cities. But many people persevere because of their commitment to an extended stay in Japan and also because of the potential earnings. Once established, the financial rewards for teaching English in Japan can be considerable." —Susan Griffith
