    1.) Dunno, but I just put the basic number.
    2.) Yes, that is fine.
    3.) 2-6 months. I applied in September and received mine the week before Christmas. Also, you probably won't hear anything until...
  3. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    I think that only applies if you pull out after you have been given your placement. Could be wrong though.
  4. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    N3 is probably fine, just make sure you tick that 'also consider ALT' box.

    I interviewed as a CIR and the passage I had to read and answer questions on was quite easy. I was probably N3 at best at...

    Re: Heart English School

    Japan isn't like Korea and other places where your visa is tied to your employer and they have you by the balls, therefore it's not that hard to change your status from 'instructor' to 'specialist in...
  7. Re: Why were you accepted by the JET Programme for a second time?

    Why would anyone want to be a CIR? A slightly higher chance of real work to do and the same crap pay.

    Re: Heart English School

    They are pretty shady. They had a short 4 month contract in my old city and I talked a lot with the Heart ALTs. They entered the country on tourist visas and did not even have their COE yet began...

    Re: Getting a Leopalace on your Own?

    I lived in a Leopalace short term when I was doing an internship in Japan, but not for an extended period when I was on JET. It was super easy to set up. Also, I and everyone I know never had to...

    Most people in my area rented cars. It was 3man/month including insurance and...
