Often left without a clue on what path to take after graduating from collage, teaching in Asia is a widely popular adventure many a native English speaker embark upon. I can personally testify that although it may not teach one the work skills you would want to use in a corporate career, it definitely opens your eyes to a whole new culture (or in some cases, the horrors thereof) and gives you the memories of a lifetime.
Cookiesap has taught English in South Korea and China, where he had a stupendous time. Indeed. One of the best ways for him to maintain the positive recollection; however, was through his ability to "move on." By returning to grad school and commencing on something new, he was not be trapped in the world of ESL and ABCs for the rest of his days.
I would like to hear about your teaching experiences in Asia, whether it was in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Thailand, or wherever, tell us all about it. I want to hear your take on this popular undertaking. Also - which country is best..and even better, what place should be avoided?
