Qualifications specific to EAP are fast becoming the best way to land a job at a university, says Paul Breen. Back at the start of my English language teaching career, I assumed that I would use the experience mainly for travel, and eventually do other things. Teaching English provided opportunites to live in places such as Japan, Australia, South Korea, and even a couple of sweltering summer months spent in Shanghai on a summer break from Korean university teaching. One day, at the close of my travels, I’d go home and write a film script, open my own business, or engage in drudgery, divorced from such exotic adventures.
