In Response To: Getting started (Mal)

I am in Japan.

The undergraduate degree isn't needed for 'most' jobs. It's needed for 'ALL' jobs, unless you happen to otherwise have legal standing in Japan (marriage visa etc).

Your first step should be to get an actual undergraduate degree. If you want to make language teaching your career, then look into linguistics or English. If you are really sure you want to teach in Japan for your career, then look into doing some sort of degree in Japanese studies.

So look into these areas:

English
Linguistics
Japanese language
Japanese history

and see if there is some sort of degree you could do (a double major in English and Japanese, with electives in Linguistics and Japanese History maybe?)
