Hi all,

Just been reading the Japanese website for my town - thanks to the guy who reminded me about Babel! (the English version was a shoddy html effort with 2 photo and 5 lines)

There are 10 schools in my town! Am I going to be visiting some of them? All of them? Or will there be another JET in town with me? (YAY!)

I know I know ESID ESID. But still, whats the MAXIMUM number of schools I could be involved with?

Ideas? Thoughts?

I don't know, but in my interview I was asked "Imagine if you were expected to work in 20 different schools and you had to give an introduction at each one of these in a short period of time. How would you keep your introduction interesting and varied so that you didn't get bored of giving it?"

I was barely able to answer the question because inside my head I was thinking "20 Schools? TWENTY SCHOOLS???"

Apparently I'll probably be working in 3 Junior High Schools, on a 2 week rotation system :)

20 schools! reminds me of "creamy caesar" on BD who had a never-ending round of schools to visit and a most depressing tale of her time in Japan.

I'm certainly glad I didn't get an email from my pred saying "Hi you may know me as CC on BD 8O ". Apparently I'll be at 2 Jr Highs :)

Do you know where she was posted exactly??

I got a mail off someone from Osaka City BOE and they said that they worked at 11 schools over 3 years but that they preferred it that way.

Whatever way that is.

Just thought Id mention it
