Teaching English in JapanBack to Tefl World

Japan, sometimes known as 'the Land of the Rising Sun', is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean. Thousands of TEFL teachers are hired here every year.  In most cases you really work for your salary, but not usually as hard as the Japanese themselves.  In return you get to enjoy an amazing culture with friendly and motivated students who will be happy to take you out to enjoy the delicious variety of cuisine and experiences unique to this fascinating country.  Japan is another country where language schools offer in-house training so you can find out if TEFL is for you before you spend lots of money on a TEFL certificate.
