General » Looking to teach in Taipei, Taiwan in Sept/Oct 2015
Hello there!

I am enrolled in the upcoming TESOL session in Edmonton, Alberta in July. I am hoping to receive my TESOL certification and find a placement in Taipei, Taiwan for mid-Sept to October. Anyone who can send information about working in Taiwan, getting placements etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Also, iss there anyone else with a similar plan as me? I would love to start making connections and start this new journey!

I can be reached at mngo1@ualberta.ca

Look forward to meeting you!

I thought that teaching English anywhere in the EU pretty much required at least a BA at the minimum??

Hi Meaghan! I haven't graduated yet but I have my sights set on Italy as well. Based on the research I've done, it's fairly easy to find job postings doing a simple search however sponsorship of your Visa may inhibit you from finding the ideal opportunity quickly. I am fortunate enough to have been born to an Italian citizen so I'll be able to circumvent this issue easily but myy advice to you would be to do a little research everyday to see whats out there and reach out and make as many connections as possible to seek opportunity, advice, suggestions, etc. from people there currently working in ESL education. My understanding is that many schools prefer to meet you in person prior to hiring but I'm still trying to figure it myself...

I may just be stating the obvious here but I hope it helps and I wish you much luck!

Hello there,

I am really new to this and have not gone anywhere yet since graduating. I would really love to go to Italy and heard they do summer contracts there. I don't know how to go about finding information on this or even where to start.

If anyone could help or give me advice about this I would really appreciate it. I have looked in the job bank but did not see anything there.

General » Looking for a teacher who's working in Minamigyoutoku in Chiba, Japan
I have a former student who has returned to Japan, and he's looking for a tutor to provide him some private lessons. He's a very committed student, who has made excellent progress in the time I taught him. If anyone is working in or around this city, could you post a reply? Thanks. Mike Bunyak.
