[crossposted from Thailand forum - sorry for being redundant]

I am US lawyer-turned teacher. I am not certified to teach but I have taken some education classes including one 'theory of teaching ESL'. I am willing to do a CELTA program (probably in Vietnam or Thailand because of cheaper cost of living.) However, i don't want to come to SE Asia with no job (even if it means taking a crummier job than I could get in-person/in-country.)

I have some experience teaching English, and several years of high level corporate and legal experience. I have a BA in English, and a Doctor of Jurisprudence. I am also well versed in the social sciences.

Ideally I would like to teach specialized courses to lawyers and businessmen who do business in the US, but I am willing to take an entry level job just to get "in country."

I don't need to make a mint of money, but I need to make enough to live and send home about $400 in child support. I don't expect to save; especially in my first position.

I am investigating schools in Taiwan, Vietnam and Thailand, and would appreciate any opinions -- good bad or pedantic.

By the way, am I overlooking an obvious country-of-choice?

Thanks
