  2. Re: Letter of Recommendation from Foreign Japanese Teacher

    Hey! I knew perfectly well that I wanted to be a lay about teaching english for peanuts for the rest of my life... How I fucked up after JET and got this super well paying job is fucking beyond me....
  3. Re: Letter of Recommendation from Foreign Japanese Teacher

    Not gonna lie, I was thinking the same thing, but if this has been a problem for a while that might explain why no new people have shown up at all in ages.

    new user mail might be broken

    Saw this over on reddit.

    Quite possible that we're having new user registration issues and never knew about it.

    Re: Clair Japanese Study course.

    If it is laughably easy, welcome to the shit I opted out of when I was a JET.

    It will be a cold day in hell when CLAIR gives JETs a reasonable Japanese learning program, as this is the group which...
