Hello - I'm after some help/ advice. I have recently passed my TEFL course and am wanting to work in Japan or Taiwan. However, I do not have a BA degree. I do have other college qualifications. I've been told about a working holiday visa which allows you to work in Japan for one year? Does anyone know anything about this? Also, I have been told that I could work privatley (at home) if I enroll in a language school I can get a student visa which legally allows me to work 20 hrs a week. Anyone heard of this?
Lastly, If I cannot work in a school in Japan or Taiwan becuase of my no degree situation does anybody know if I can do private tuition from home legally.
Thanks very much in anticipation
Charlie Boyd

Hi there,
Sorry, but as far as legal teaching is concerned, you could only stay and teach in Taiwan legally if you have a degree, or is a registered student at a Chinese language institute - meaning you're a serious student of the Chinese language.
I've been here for 4 years, and saw many foreigners being deported because of teaching illegally. SO please don't consider that. It's not worth it!
