    I've never done it, but lots and lots of teachers have had ESL gigs in their lives. I know almost no one who's said it was a bad experience. You make good money, the gig's easy, and you fuck a bunch of slanty poon.

    I'm thinking of going when I get my degree. Do you need any special qualifications?

    No reputable company will hire you with anything less than a BA. ESL certification will get you better gigs and more money, but you're fine without.

    I know a guy who taught in Taiwan. He would come over every once in a while and chat with my Taiwanese exchange student. He loved it and goes back to visit often.

    i've bumped into people who taught english in thailand and vietnam. they loved the gigs. japan and korea are not any fun at all. i'd go to thailand but vietnam is probably pretty cool these days too.

    That's what you heard, but I've met way more people who taught in Korea and Japan, and they loved it. Some of them stayed for years and kept re-upping.

    Beats me. Most people who want to teach English are usually English majors. :dontknow: I don't think you can teach a Jap or a Korean much about science, because they'll school your ass all over the dojo.

    If you do teach them about science, make sure you blind them by it...
