Travel, Teach, Live in Japan
I would like to live and work in Japan teaching English. Is it possible to do this for the rest of my life?
I am an American, but I do not want to stay in the U.S. I love Japan and everything about it....the people, the food, the culture, the technology, etc. I want to live and work in Japan, but I do not know of any other way to do this besides teaching English (I know very little Japanese).
I am a native English speaker, and I have a Bachelor's degree from a four-year University.
So I have the minimum requirements to teach English in Japan.
I would like to hear from people who have been teaching English in Japan for a long time. I know you have to renew your contract with a school every year to two years. Is it possible to teach English at different schools in Japan for 40 years? How much can you get paid for teaching English after, say, 10 years? 20 years? 30?
And what about the Health and Retirement Benefits? Can you stay in Japan for the rest of your life?
