I guess I should mention that I am moving to Japan for sure now. I was offered a one year teaching contract.

Well I will post the info as soon as I get it. I have to fill out a huuuuge pile of paperwork, then once it all clears they will set up a start date and placement in Japan. I am most likely going to southern Japan near Kyushu or Kanto. Seriously that post was all the info I know right now. I AM however, accepting monetary donations to the "Send a Jesse to Japan Fund" =).

did you do oxford seminars or any such preparation for TESL?

Nope not at all, but I checked them out. GEOS is one of the few japanese based companies that you don't need the certification. The interview was really gruelling. So basically you can get an ESL job without the certification, but if you have the money to spend on it, it can't hurt and could help you get a better job.

as a rule, in asia anyway, you don't need tesl. in japan right now - you might get paid 50 dollars cdn extra per month for having the certification. but that's that. when i was in taiwan, sometimes the job postings listed it as a preference but not an actual qualifiction.

considering the cost of the course and what you actually learn and apply - i would say it's a loss.

Thanks for the worst advice ever. As if I would post a singles ad; don't you think I've had enough trouble with girls+internet as it is?
