    That's something I've always wanted to do too. I helped my mum teach hot teenage Japanese girls English about 2/3 years ago. I'll try and ask what agency she worked for, maybe they do it the opposite way.....

    Hahahahaha.....man, the only reason I went was to sit at the front of the class and oggle at them. There's something so hot about girls that can't speak a word of English. They always made me origami. And they giggled all the fucking time. And wore school girl outfits. Oh man....it was intense. I had to periodically take water breaks.

    Try teaching English in Korea. They will treat you like a King and Queen. I believe they pay well plus you get free housing and will get invited to dinner all the time. If you're truly interested I'll ask my mom for info.

    My sister did this in 2001 for a year or so, she really didnt like it at all, she said that culturally they are very very differnt and it didnt rub off on her well...i also hear everything is ridiculously expensive, and its really very hard to save...i also stronly recommend that you go to that cource, it will give you much perspective that can be applied through your own ways.

    good luck.

    Timely thread, I was thinking of this as an option myself...

    I was at the Black Dog last week and was talking to a chick who just got back from Korea and was teaching English there.
    She said the most lucrative place to teach was Korea, as well as the best place to have a "cultural experience".
    Japan, she said, was probably the easiest to live in, but the money wasn't as good.
    China, her Korean boyfriend said, was boring.

    She also said they want you to have a degree of some sort. But then again, its Asia. I think you just need to say "yes" if they ask.

    Hey, what places have you looked into, TT?

    serum, ill write you later, im running off to work right now. id like it more than 2 sentances.

    i know what im doing moving into a completly different culture. ive done it before and ill do it again. ive looked into japan mostly. korea would be cool but the whole north korea thing isnt so hot. hong kong would be awesome. but japan would be my first choice.
