General » Teaching in Japan
I'm not sure but I think you need to have a Bachelor'd degree + some teaching experience for schools is Japan.
I am also a recent TESOL grad from New York City and I have a hard time getting answers from schools in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea. Even though I have my B.A. degree in teaching ESL and Math + I have my TESOL certificate + I have 3 years teaching experience.
But I don't give up.
Cheers.

Hello there,

I am a recent graduate from Global TESOL College Canada and I would very much like to teach in Japan for the summer and perhaps even into the fall. I am a first year university student and I've been apllying practically everywhere with little success. I'm getting discouraged and I'm afraid I'm doing something wrong. I'm in the process of getting my holiday working VISA and I'm learning Japanese...is there something I'm lacking? Any help would be great...

Thanks,

General » contact search
I know that many of the tesol graduates trying to find employment in europe should "knock on doors" of many of the local european english schools as to finding employment. I have been searching for employment in greece....yet everything seems to be hidden if there are any jobs available at the least. I can't afford travelling and finding nothing once I'm there. MONEY is an issue for me. (like most of us) My question is are there any contacts, links or leads of any kind that anybody knows of in Greece? Thanks a million !

General » How do I get to Europe?
Hello,

I got my TESOL certificate in September 2005. I would like to go to Europe, it doesnt matter where, Ideally, I would like to go to Germany, Switzerland, Austria or Belgium. But I am flexible.

My situation is as follows:

I am Indian, grew up in Hong Kong and have lived in the US for over 14 years. I have a Bachelors in Hotel Mgmt and a Masters in International BUsiness in Marketing. (MIBA) both from an American University in San DIego.

I don't have a teaching background, but my english is fluent, infact people look at me funny when I speak, because I look Indian, from Hong Kong and I have a ENglish/Australian Accent.

I would like to know what are the options, and how long does the process take?

Thank you Again.

Hi there,
I am new to this website, and I'd like to put out my resume. Can I do that from this site? It would be very helpful if someone could guide me along.

Thanks,

General » English speaking Au Pairs
Here are some links for grads who have an interest in combining child care with Teaching English. There are many opportunities to work part-time or full-time for room and board and a small weekly stipend as an Au pair. These can be long term or short-term so could be suitable to a variety of travelling plans.

We've had grads move from working as an Au Pair to working in institutions teaching English and this may be a great way to find work in some of the harder to get to places of Europe!

Hi David,

congratulations on completing your TESOL certification courses!

In most of Europe there is a big possibility of finding work in a summer camp for some of those summer months, or doing intensive Business English courses.

Unfortunatley Holland isn't know for its numerous English teaching opportunities. Because of their public education system any jobs you would be considered for would most likely be for teaching immigrants coming in to the country, just like here in any city in North America.

Consider other European countries - Eastern and Western. Maybe you could work for 2 months in a camp in France and visit Amsterdam after once your contract is complete. Or contact ESL schools directly in Amsterdam and see if they run summer courses. Many times jobs just aren't advertised and you have to find them yourself!

Check out this page for English School Listings in the Netherlands: http://www.dmo.com/dyp/198,10,0.html

Good Luck with your seach, and be sure to keep us updated!
