My name is Nick and I am currently teaching ESL in Okayama, Japan. This is my second semester in the MET program.
I am very excited for this unique course because I have spent a lot of time thinking about emerging market trends in the ESL world. I think that most Educators regard themselves as public servants rather than competitive professionals who have enormous potential in the private sector. I am glad I had a few opportunities to teach in the private sector and hope to have more.
Near the end of this course, I will be leaving Japan after living here for 2 years. It has been a fantastic experience but I am ready to go back to Ontario for a little bit before considering another international teaching opportunity. This course will be a great way for me to focus my energies before moving onto the next step.
I look forward to learning something from everybody.
