    Re: Aspiring - Am I being realistic?

    Yeah I've known plenty of JETs that age and older with zero Japanese abilities or really all that much knowledge about Japan. I would say a good third of JETs really didn't particularly put much...

    Re: Applying for 2019

    Hey, you're putting words in my mouth!

    Depends on what you think the goal of having them is. If you think the goal is for students in Japan to leave school with a functional level of English, then there are a million other problems they...

    Re: Applying for 2019

    Anyone else will tell you this but just don't set your heart too much on it. It's not a career, it's temporary, blablabla. If you just like the idea of a gap year abroad then make back-up plans. If...

    Also did you think there was a teacher who was named "kocho sensei"?

    I don't understand. I taught them a textbook and then tested that they had memorized it. What else is there to think about?

    That's funny, I was just imagining how funny it would be if high school teachers didn't teach English like it was a dead language.

  24. Re: what do you wish you'd have known before coming to Japan?

    I have a website which lists AV stars deriheru pages, if you need it.
