I was thinking about applying next year for teaching English somewhere such as Japan (JET program) in 2011.
Just not sure if I could handle it SA-wise.
Has anyone else done something like this? I believe that the interview process could be quite hard but I could do a course that would hopefully help me through it.

I would guess the number of applicants for these jobs may be fairly high.

Many teachers here in America, at all educational levels, are unable to find jobs.

As I recall, some countries are hiring American college professors. Teaching jobs, at the college level here, are very tough to find. The competition for these overseas jobs must be fierce.

I taught English for a year in Spain, I really enjoyed it.

Public speaking is not a problem for me. I'm not sure why; I think it is because I know that I have permission to be up there speaking. If I know I have clearance or authority to do something, I can do it.

My SA is worst in social situations like when I have to mingle at a party. I CAN'T do it. I think this is because in a social situation, I don't feel like I have the permission/authority to speak. I don't feel like I have the right to open my mouth or approach someone.
