Teach English in Japan,
Getting A TEFL and Shared Housing
(United States of America)
I want to teach English in Japan, but I still have some questions. I plan to get the TEFL certification and apply for JET program right after college. Currently I'm trying to teach myself some Japanese.
Regarding housing, would I be still be able to get my own apartment rather than the one they set you up in if I wanted to?
I'm very interested in share houses. Would I be able to afford living in one that is 63,000-110,000 yen with an English teachers salary? What's the likelihood of being near a city? Can you request it? Your website is very helpful and answered a majority of my questions.
