    Teaching English in Japan is one of the most high-in-demand jobs there.
    For you to be able to teach English in Japan, you must have a Bachelor’s degree and a clean criminal record. In Japan, the average monthly wage for teachers ranges from $1,700 to $5,000 USD.

    Certification in teaching is required especially if you are not a native-English speaker. For you to be certified to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL), which is highly recommended to increase your chance, you must take a course to earn a certificate. Some courses are paid while some are free. One of the TEFL certifications which is not just highly recommended, but also free, is Teacher Record. You can take the course and get certified before proceeding to apply to any teaching English job in Japan.

    Generally, if you want to teach English in Japan, you’ll need a work visa. Your visa application will be sponsored by a number of language schools. A bachelor’s degree is often required to obtain a working visa. If your contracting agency sponsors you, you can go to Japan on a tourist visa and then change to a working visa once you are there. Although Japanese language skill is not required, it can help you get a better-paying job.
