Can you offer some tips for saving money as a foreign exchange student?
All foreign study programs seem to be extremely expensive. I am interested in studying Japanese language by immersion—in fact, the college of my choice (Berea College, Kentucky) says at least one term is almost mandatory. I’ve heard that there is a need for native speakers of English as teachers in Japanese schools, and wonder whether there are “study abroad Japan” programs that allow an American exchange student to work off the costs of studying Japanese by teaching English in Japan. My long term goal would be employment translating from Japanese to English. Are internships ever possible? Are scholarships ever available? I’ve heard that it’s sometimes possible to save money by staying with a host family, but that this can also be dangerous. What kind of people are likely to be interested in hosting a foreign exchange student?
