anyone here ever done it? If so, where did you teach? did you go through the JET program or did you teach at one of the many corporate Eikaiwa spread throughout the country? I'm mainly just curious which schools are now the big competitors and wanted to know what your experience was like. when I lived in Japan years ago Nova was one of the big schools but I believe they were rocked by scandal and have since closed their doors. I had a couple of friends go through the JET program and they had mixed feelings about it. my mom lives in northern Japan, so she frequently tells me to move there. Unfortunately, teaching English seems to be one of the few occupations foreigners can get unless you have a specialized degree and can speak fluent Japanese and I have no desire to live in the middle of nowhere. bueller?
