Hi Im a 19 year old guy from Cambridge England. I really need hel becouse I really want to teach english in Japan, but I don't have any qualifications or degree! I did do english and got "B" in English Listening and Speaking. It's not so much that Im stupied..but Ive had a few problems in my life..due to living in France for 9 years..well I was born in England, but moved to France when I was 4 years old...do I basicaly grew up in France..when I came back to England I had so much trouble fitting in..becouse the school systems are so much diferent! so that's why I did not do so well in my english...well I got "D" in my english language..like writting and so on..but I did well in the oral side but as for my living in france...when I learnt French In England I got "A" for the language and "A" for the speaking and Listening! Well anyway the other reason I wanted to go teach there is becouse my g/f lives there and I went to Japan this summer for 3 weeks, I loved it so much. I also met her parents which I loved so much..though there kept staring at my blue eyes! well anyway curently my g/f and her parents are trying to look for jobs for me...and my g/f is sending me information through the post which has not yet arrived...but there told me about ALT assitant language Teachers. But for that you need to have degree! Im really stuck and need help...I did find on a board something about TEFL and EIKAIWAS? if anybody knows about this please reply and if you have time...maybe we could chat about it? I feel so confused about all this and also in some respect I feel like Im never gonna be able to work in Japan.
