The idea to teach English abroad came to me about 2 summers ago; I decided I wanted to do a Gap year between my undergrad and grad school and go to Japan to teach ESL. Now, I'm finally getting ready to graduate and this dream is quickly becoming a real possibility that I do not want to miss out on! Over the past few months I've been doing some research about different locations. It makes me both anxious and excited to think about living in a completely different culture for an entire year! It's going to be the experience of a lifetime, to be sure.
So now that I've been doing my research this is where I'm at:
Japan is out because they don't seem to have alot of job opportunities out there.
South Korea is looking mighty appealing; public schools do alot of hiring in August, which suits me perfectly. I'd be finished with school, and finished with my volunteer placement by August. And I could do a one year contract and be back in Canada in time for grad school.
