In Response To: Short term work in Asia with little/no experience (Alv)

I want to get a taste of teaching ESL in Asia (preferably in Taiwan, Korea, Japan , China). It would be a new field for me as I currently have no certification and no experience in teaching anything - other than volunteering roles with kids in Canada. A raw beginner. Is there any chance to get a sampling of teaching in Asia for a shorter 3, 4 or 6 month period and what situations/ places would bring in someone like me? I think most postings want 1 year commitment and with little/no experience, i expect my pay would be minimal, if anything. eg. would I need to look for teaching positions as a 'volunteer' or might some place want & pay for someone inexperienced, but native speaker? Where might I find/ search for these places?

I think less developed countries (like Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand) may be more open to take raw rookies, but it's not my first choice.

I want to try ESL teaching (ideally for short term) to see if I like it without diving into the deep end with certification and long term contracts. Or is that not realistic?

Any suggestions & advice would be greatly appreciated.
