Hello, i was wondering the kind of options i have as a non native speaker from Holland like myself? I want to travel Asia for about a year in September and start working after that.

I have a bachelor in education (history) and 2 (3 next year) years of experience teaching history, Dutch and English in a Dutch secondary school. I'm going to start a course to get the Certificate in Advanced English in a few weeks.

I know i'm probably able to get a job in China or Thailand (considering that I am 28, caucasian and blond;)) but will I be able to apply for a job teaching in countries such as Korea or Japan, considering my degrees and experience in teaching, even though I am not a native speaker?

Thank you

In Japan, at the moment, there are a ridiculous amount of teachers looking for whatever they can get.
I put an ad up for a part time teacher with low pay at the busiest hours of the week, and I got loads of CVs sent in.

As a non native speaker, from Holland, you'll be fine. Just walk in to a number of schools and force an introduction. Smile
Put on a British accent for the interview lol, once you're in you're in!
