white skin and willingness to wear a tie are the main requirements really.
Well I'm mixed black/white. Would that make it harder? As for ties I have plenty haha.

You'll have no problem finding work with your experience
Haha, what experience? Talking to foreigners? What the hell is a self taught linguist?

Jamie has experience teaching English words to bargirls I don't that qualifies him for a teaching job.
9+ years experience working with and translating/interpreting for the Japanese and Hispanic communities through out the central valley here in California. Self taught means that rather than taking classes at a University that teach you nothing more than the basics of how to say Hi and count to 10 which get you pretty much no where if you were to actually try and have a conversation with someone..I took the initiative to study and learn the language word by word, sentance structure, verbs, conjugations, all of it and put it to use in conversation with the Japanese and Hispanic communities which helped me to grasp the languages much more quickly almost as if I were living in the countries of Japan and Mexico myself. Took me 1 year to learn Japanese fluently speaking, reading, and writing and 6 months to learn Spanish fluenty speaking, reading, and writing. I worked in the fields with the illegal immigrants for 2 years where they only spoke Spanish which greatly improved my learning of common colloquial expressions. And though I do not claim to be an expert at English in fact far from it, I am a Native English Speaker with a strong command of the English language and decent sentance syntax structure with good communication skills and a couple of foreign languages under my belt so that should be able to get me a step ahead of others even without a degree. As an employer would you rather hire someone who just graduated a 4 year university and has a shiny new BA degree but no experience or someone who has no degree but has years of experience in the field and can prove it to you on the spot?

If I were an employer looking to hire a language teacher, interpreter, or translator, I wouldn't even bother to interview an applicant who can't spell sentence.

You are just picking at things to do it. Im not teaching a class im typing on forums and dont care about taking the time to make sure I spell things properly because you dont pay me to do so. If you are just here to troll then go troll somewhere else.

I don't know which would be worse, having you as my teacher for an hour a day.or tolerating you as a coworker.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

honestly, most of these schools don't give a shit about qualifications. we are like a tame bear shambling around. for marketing purposes only.
lots of jobs teaching little kids esp for females- sing a song, abc, 123, cat, dog, cow, up, down etc.
you can also teach conversational english online for Chinese firms, $10-20/hr.
don't let the trollling put you off.

yes, like all of Australian workers; as the PRC owns your entire energy infrastructure and lots more besides,
