Much has been written about teaching English in Japan, some of it positive and some of it negative. However the fact remains that it is the main entry point for a large number of foreigners choosing to work in Japan.
On this episode of the GPod, I talk to Wesley Christenson who first came to Japan through a teaching program by the large Eikaiwa company, Aeon. Wes talks about the challenges and benefits of working in a large company and ultimately why he chose to leave Aeon for a role in a smaller language school.
Now working at Kids Duo, Wes is excited about the opportunities that the school offers. Even though he took a pay cut to work at Kids Duo, the teacher friendly environment is something he greatly appreciates.
