    Is Long-Term Teaching a Viable Career in Japan?

    This is the last in our three part series with Simon Moran. If you haven’t heard the other podcasts already, we talked about the myth of self-sponsoring a visa, and why you shouldn’t start an English school, and this time we’re going to talk about whether it is possible to make a viable long term living as an English teacher in Japan.

    DON'T Start An English School In Japan | With Simon

    DON'T Start An English School In Japan | With Simon

    I’m back with Simon Moran to talk about why starting a school is a big mistake for most English teachers living in Japan. So many people think of this as a way to make a better long-term living as an English teacher in Japan, but it is a totally different job than teaching. Even worse, many start with their Japanese spouse dealing with the parents of their students, and it can often have a very negative effect on their relationship as well.

    There's No Such Thing As "Self-Sponsoring" Your Visa in Japan | with Simon

    This is the first in a 3 part series of podcasts with Simon Moran, the owner of Modern English. He’s been in Japan for a while and on this episode we’re going to talk about the myths and misinformation about self-sponsoring your visa. Don’t get mislead by people in Facebook groups or Reddit forums who might get you in trouble with your visa renewal. I hope you learn a lot from this conversation, and come back in the future when we’ll be talking about if its possible to make a good living as a long-term teacher in Japan, and why you shouldn’t start a school.
