  3. Re: Current & Former JETs - Your best and worst experience as a JET?

    Actually, all of my truly "bad" days in Japan came after JET. Of course I had better days than others while a JET but nothing too terrible and as I think about it in hindsight, no big incidents come...

    Re: Visa Application Payment

    Thanks for the reply. I'd find it odd too if they'd require it. But the postcard doesn't actually say approved or not, it just says to show up to learn the result. I'm pretty sure that they...

    Re: Facebook worry

    It seems as if fewer and fewer anime nerds are failing at the interview stage in recent years. I think more than half the ALTs I've met in this prefecture who have come within the last 3-4 years are...

    Re: Aspiring UK 2015 JETs

    Had a conversation with one of the bosses at the BOE and they said the next ALT to come in this summer will be from the UK. So perhaps someone in this thread will be my new coworker in a few months. ...

    Re: Understanding my Japanese Gas Bill

    As I've also just moved into a new apartment, I got a little more insight on how some of the bills work (I never really paid much attention before). I've been told that the gas bill has a base fee...

    Usually the difference is that most high school ALTs are part of the Prefecture BOE while the ES and JHS are covered by city BOEs.

    I remember in my third year on JET, I was called into the principal's office and given a form about my goals for the year. I was told I had to fill it out in Japanese and it would be used in the...
  15. Re: When do Japanese teachers find out their assignments for the next school year?

    When I was a JET, my first JTE and, later, her replacement had told me months in advance that they "thought" they were going to be moved at the end of the school year. Even though they said things...
