Hi Pauline,

As far as what to do after your stint working at Aeon, your personal experiences will be the determining factor in this. Most teachers pack it in and go home after 2 years. There reasons are many. Missing family, not fitting in etc.

Regarding making more money, yes you can do that. Teaching certification helps a lot plus the undeniable fact that your teaching experience is a factor that can't be overlooked.

After a year or two of teaching, you'll have both and you'll be able to get higher paying jobs and more money than what Aeon can or will offer you.

If you want gigantic cash you can start your own school. But then again all of this is so contingent on how you feel about teaching in Japan. If you love to teach in Japan then you'll probably stay the course, network and find better jobs. And you can because you'll be worth more to employers.

If you are lucky or persistent or both you might be able to find work back home based on your Japanese speaking ability. I hear quite a few cases of such happenings. This is a possibility. Or work in the TEFL industry, teacher training etc.

If you hate to teach in Japan then it will be time for you to book your ticket back. In the end you have to make the decision and it comes down to this: If you can make the same amount of money back home but prefer Japan then staying longer will be a no-brainer but if it is the other way around then buying the return ticket becomes the no-brainer.

Honestly, you won't know until you jump into the situation just as speculating about how cold the ocean is when you're standing on the shore won't get you far but jumping in sure as heck will.

Good luck!
