    Aight cool. You think you can move me over to the 'after japan' forum? Thanks ^^
  4. No Give Alien Registration = I Can't Haz Pension?

    Thought I'd post here because seems more active than the appropriate forum, and VIP/anything goes, right?

    I was researching about pension, specifically this CLAIR document, and it seems you can...

    Re: Doing JET with no teaching experience

    I think you can make a gigantic impact on your students, but it will most likely not coming through anything you teach, really. Rather, it'll be through being friendly, positive and giving them a...
  8. Re: Places actually worth visiting while you are in Japan

    @original topic: i'd highly recommend the echigo-yuzawa area in niigata. has anyone else been there? they have an art festival every 3 years and there a bunch of cool things within drivable...

    i teach at kindergarten, ES and JHS. here's what i would say:

    kindergarten:

    + kids of boatloads of energy and naturally love you
    + they learn fast and are down for anything you teach them
    +...
  10. Re: You have a full JHS1年生 class every week to do whatever you want, what do you do?

    ok, good suggestions.

    i'm totally up for that (well, will be if it's the same situation in april). have you tried something like this? or, what would you do, garak? :D

    it's ok, keep trying...

    Sticky: Re: Not so obvious advice for new ALTs

    great idea for a thread. i'd add something not related to teaching, but traveling: if you're in a foreign country, buy your omiyage at a supermarket. just buy some authentic-looking goods from...

    Re: Finding other jobs in Japan

    yeah i suppose everyone tries to show their best front when talking about their lives in person, so what i've heard could definitely be skewed. i'll try to look up those threads to get a more...

    Re: Momotaro - We Are Good Friends (Hi Friends 2)

    ah ok, that is more precise. everyone just uses the same term here, but i can see the benefit of having two separate terms.

    Re: Momotaro - We Are Good Friends (Hi Friends 2)

    meh.. they're alright. greatly depends on the teacher, but 8/9 of them are definitely down to use every bit of little english they have and aren't really embarrassed. we generally use a mix of...

    Re: Momotaro - We Are Good Friends (Hi Friends 2)

    it's actually quite small. i'm guessing we are using the same term to me two different things. i am using it in the sense that every 5th/6th grade teacher i teach english with is a japenese teacher...

    hmm everyone i know gets a guaranteed cheque and signing bonuses on top. of course you'll probably get canned if you don't perform but that is almost the case anywhere (except JET)

  19. Re: You have a full JHS1年生 class every week to do whatever you want, what do you do?

    i don't think i'm wasting it at all, especially considering i do a lot of review games. i do indeed focus on more communication style games vs. grammar, and i was hoping for some more in the same...
  20. You have a full JHS1年生 class every week to do whatever you want, what do you do?

    This is the kind of the situation I have found myself in. It's quite fun to be able to teach/play whatever game I want with the students. I have been able to keep coming up with engaging material,...

    I am very lucky in that all of my JTEs looked at this lesson, heard me out and were like "yeah, let's just skip this completely, it's shit." If you stick around for next year and are dreading this...

    Re: Finding other jobs in Japan

    Another option would be getting into headhunting/recruiting. I have a bunch of friends that do that/have done that in Tokyo and it seems like a decent deal if you land with a good company.

    Re: Interac as a backup to JET

    don't sweat it, sometimes JET interviews are just a crapshoot. as others said, you won't get blacklisted as they are completely separate organizations.
