i am an american in s.korea and am starting to get a little nervous... don't want to go home, but need to keep my options open... anyway, i have an education degree, been here for 6 months teaching. i am wondering if anyone has any input on what would be the best country (as far as availiability for an american with no TEFL certification) for me to get a job. i would love to go to spain or prauge, but i know that jobs with no certification are hard to come by. anyway, any imput on where my best bets are would be appreciated! Smile i'm open to going just about anywhere!

I would suggest coming to Japan.You have an Education degree so I
think you could easily get a job with any eikaiwa here.This webpage offers
many jobs daily.
I am curious though as to your reasons for not staying in South Korea.
Are you concerned about North Korea?Or is there another reason?
Cheers bud. Cool

I am just curious.Are you nervous because of all that sabre-rattling "Dear Leader" is doing up there?(I am in Korea right now,too.)If that is the reason,I understand,although I have not reached the point of leaving...not yet...anyway.If you have another reason...like a bad employer...I understand that one,too.

Shonai's suggestion is a good one. Japan is close.You will make money there.You will NOT make money in Czech(Prague).I have worked there,too.Spain is already EU and you would have a difficult time working legally there.Either Spain or Czech...you would wind up paying your own airfare there,anyway.Japan is much closer ,of course.It makes much better sense for you to go to some place closer where you can make money.Best of luck.I understand where you are coming from. Smile
