    Has anyone spent time in Asia teaching English? What's a typical commitment time? Do you get time for sightseeing? Do you typically get paid to do this or just room and board?

    Teaching English requirements

    I would stay out of Japan for now as English schools have flooding Japan with more than 6000 English teachers so not much of a chance there. Stick to Korea or China for English teaching opportunities as they offer much better opportunities for the teacher/ traveler looking for a few years overseas.

    Btw, anyone thinking that they can simply come and teach abroad need to know that there are basic qualifications that you need. They include a university degree of any field or higher, English should be your first language, enthusiastic about teaching, and having some form of teaching experience.

    Actually, the number of English teacher in Japan is very large. You will get this job more easily if moving to Vietnam. This is developing country and in the integration period so its demand for English and English teacher as well is quite high. Personally, I find that Vietnam is also a nice country with friendly people and beautiful landscape.
