Sounds like the recent "Nova" collapse. They were the biggest, 40% of all students in Japan, that's big ... but had huge overheads and other internal problems.Know someone's son who went over there - the school collapsed, owing them a bit of money......
Just out of curiousity, what qualifications are required to teach English in a foreign country?
Obviously, one would have to have a firm understanding of English and the language of the country they were teaching in but would they have to have an English teachers (school level) degree.
That's bizzare. Does it matter what the degree is in? What is the AUS$ equivilant to to 250k yen?Thanks guys for the replys.
Daughter has been offered 12mth contract 250000yen per mth. She has to get her own way there and back and pay for accomodation etc.
Kissfan the only requirement to teach english was a degree. Daughter has a degree in media and communication. Also did high school Japanese.

About $2,500. Generally it doesn't matter what the degree is in (unless you want to teach at Berlitz or something). They just want native speakers.That's bizzare. Does it matter what the degree is in? What is the AUS$ equivilant to to 250k yen?
That is just 25sqm, and it's certainly not the equivalent of NW1. Think zone 4 or 5. Very much a grad's apartment, I guess. I eventually moved to a 40sqm place 15 minutes from Shinjuku for about 125,000 yen a month. Rent isn't that expensive in Japan, as long as you can survive in an area where no one speaks English.Alex, that's really cheap. It's +$1000 AUD just for a bedroom in London. But then that was in central London NW1. Also, rented a 1br apt on 14th st 3rd ave Union Sq for US$1600 p/mth split between 3 people. I got the whole living room to myself.
