English Teaching Requirements 2019/4/23 07:36
My current situation:
- Canadian citizen
- 3rd year BA Psychology student (INCOMPLETE, since I want to get an honours degree)
- Have a TESOL certification
- Teaching experience for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers (1-year)
- No English proficiency test
This is what I was planning to bring to Japan to apply for English Teacher jobs. I am worried about a) not having a Bachelor certificate, b) not having teacher experience with ages older than 4 years old, c) if paying for an English proficiency test is a must.
Does anybody know any similar situation?
Thank you for answering my question!

No degree, no visa, unless you are married to a Japanese national.

If you have neither a bachelorfs degree nor three years of teaching experience, you would not qualify for a work visa to teach English.

I donft understand the gEnglish proficiency testh part – you are not a native speaker of the English language? Then youfd have to show that you are gequivalenth if they are asking for native speakers, by showing that you have been educated gin the English languageh for many years. (But since you already have TESOL certification, you must have been considered to be gfluenth so the proficiency test should not be an issue.)
