Finding Jobs as a Qualified Non-native Speaker
(Currently in Laos)
I'm a Dutch high school math teacher (25) who's eager to teach English in Japan. I'm struggling to paint a picture of what's possible and what's not. I have certain qualifications that would make me a very interesting applicant. These include a teaching qualification, 3 years of teaching experience, (highly positive) student inquiries and an IELTS test that determined my English proficiency at CEFR level C2.
After doing some initial research, I still can't really tell how much of a drawback my lack of being a native speaker is. Is Japan an option (especially with Tokyo 2020 in mind) or should I focus more on other countries like Vietnam and Laos?
Any help would be very appreciated.
