Great for Recent Grads/Not Trained Teachers
After having my own classroom in the US for four years moving to an assistant position in a foreign country was a bigger jump than expected. Japanese culture is often difficult and the logic results in the exact opposite of what a Western trained mind concludes. Patience and consideration is key. My three years flew by in a flash and the friendships have endured, with the help of social networking sites. While Japanese is not a prerequisite, it is advisable to pick up more than just the conversation starters.
良い点Good salary, government support
悪い点remote locations, culture shock
