    Let me outline:
    - You are now in 11th grade
    - You are looking for a professional career path after 12th grade
    - Preferably in Japan and also to settle there
    - So since Japan has high demand for English teachers, you want to take an English major
    - If you get English major, you'll graduate by the time you're 21
    - But you want to have higher chance of getting hired so you would continue studying til you get a PhD
    - But you will be 25 or 26 by the time you get a PhD

    Apply to join @Ai chan's harem?

    Or maybe she'll have an idea about the whole career path thing, I suppose. Since you're asking about Japan.

    My ex has been working as an English teacher in Japan for a while now.

    Been ages since we've last talked about this, but last I remember, all that they asked, was that you were a native English speaker and that you had an uni degree.

    Dunno if his case was unusual or not, but I think the requirements aren't too strict for working in Japan as an English teacher.

    Getting a job as English teacher in Japanese schools is very hard. You need to come from universities recognized by the Ministry of Education, you need to go on interviews, you need to be able to speak Japanese fluently (not as native, but enough that you didn't misunderstood common words), be able to read Japanese and you need to wait for your turn in a very long list. They will inform you if your name comes up, but by that time, your application would have likely reached a couple of years old.

    Getting a job as an English teacher at tuition centers is much easier, however. All you need to do is go to a tuition center, ask to speak with the director and apply for the job. While it's against the law, there are many foreign teachers at tuition centers who work under tourist visa. It's fine if you don't get caught. If you do get caught working using tourist visa, you go straight home. Tuition centers also don't pay well, and the Japanese tuition centers would try their best to exploit you, because they know you can't say anything if you got a job on tourist visa. There are also tuition centers that are also black companies, so you will be exploited, without realizing that it's not normal to work 15 hours a day in Japan.

    As for teaching English, let's just say that the Japanese government doesn't know how to make an English syllabus and you will end up feeling like your work doesn't matter. No matter how dedicated you are, the only students who would excel in English would be people who are already good in English. After all, Japanese people who truly want to learn English properly would move to Malaysia.

    So high on demand because the requirements are high for ordinary people, then?

    Also, atm English teachers may be high in demand in Japanese, but that may not be true in the next 5-6 years. If you want to become an English teacher in another country that doesn't speak English, you may need to rethink where you will go.
