Hi people with ALT experience, finding work in Japan sure is tough. Finding work with your girlfriend? Much harder.
Where should a pair of people go to teach English in Japan? We are spending our time trying to get anywhere we can (We hear being near a city increases our happiness), however, we have been rooting for a position in Nagoya, Kanagawa as a close second. We keep hitting dead ends and are getting desperate. It looks like at this rate, we are going to save up $2,000 a piece and take a plane there in mid-april, 3 months from now, hopefully finding work in the 90 days we are legally allowed there.

Teaching English in Vietnam: Have you or has someone you know ever worked in Vietnam? I'm teaching EFL in Chiang Mai, Thailand now, and considering a move to Hanoi, where I hear the pay is better. I've visited Hanoi before and loved it. I'm seeking your experiences and informed advice.
