"Despite the rumors,
a native’s knowledge of the English language
is not an automatic passport to employment anywhere
abroad. It can, however, be put to profitable use
in many Asian countries. In Korea, Taiwan, Japan,
Thailand and, increasingly, China a high proportion
of the population are eager for tuition from English
speakers. A university degree in any subject is
genuinely the only prerequisite, though in some
cases just a degree of enthusiasm will suffice."—Susan
Griffith reports in Teaching
English In Asia.
