Hi. I'm a Canadian with an Honours BA and an MA in English, interested in teaching in Asia, most likely in Korea. I'd like to start hopefully soon (October?), but can only work for 6-8 months since I have to return home to start my Bed. Is it possible to get a job that quickly and for such a short amount of time? Where would I have the best chance of getting such a job, and what type of pay could I expect?
Thank you!

We have two teachers here who commenced at the beginning of September for a Semester only, which means they will leave on the 14th January 2005. That is only four and a half months, so I do not think the length of your proposed stay is the problem.

What appears to be the problem is your timing - arriving in the middle of a Semester. We get about 5 weeks holiday in Jan/Feb each year and some Schools may not be too thrilled about paying you holiday pay not long after your arrival.

Having said that though, there is a constant and ongoing demand in China for "English Teachers" so you should find something without too many problems.

Best of luck
