    Re: JET and Student Loan Debt

    I did loads of private lessons when I was there. I just didn't make a whole song and dance about it.

    Note to British JETs: I know a fair few people who have "hidden" from paying back their loans....
  2. Sticky: Re: SOP review

    Just so you know, to the people who sent me SoPs yesterday, I am swimming in receipts for expenses for the time being but promise to look over them either later on today or tomorrow morning.

    Re: TweedPawn's Hangout for Second Chances

    ALL THE WORD

    I did my thesis at uni on how multiple choice testing for languages just doesn't work. Also, this is the exact reason why I won't take N1. I have the Japanese to work in a Japanese...

    Re: TweedPawn's Hangout for Second Chances

    With regards to the JLPT mentioning, Miami might disagree with me (in which case believe them and not me) but I always keep it vague on things that are cool but not overly cool (ie - took JLPT =...

    Re: New High School ALT lesson planning ideas

    I can't remember the site but there is a whole website of games out there. If one of the other people on here can't remember what it's called (something with -pedia on the end maybe?) then do some...

    Japan blogger Gakuranman got in over me when I did it. And he's an absolute prick.

    Re: CIR

    I had the CIR interview but that year they only wanted 4 British CIRs and I was number 5 on the list. I say go for it and say you'd be an ALT if you didn't get in. If anything, just the experience of...

    I forgot to mention, I am British so if you send me stuff and you are not British, I may try to make incorrect corrections to your wording/grammar etc. Also I can be ridiculously harsh.

    Re: Turning down unwanted male attention...

    Mace is legal in Japan, right?

    I have to say, the thing that I am bothered by the most after being out of Japan for 3 years now, is how creepy western guys can be. In New York the other week guys...

    Re: Post the Japanese you learn today here

    And what do you mean when you say that?

    If you genuinely know all the things needed to pass N1 then sure, you could read a newspaper/novel with no problem. N2 doesn't necessarily mean you are...

    Is your friend Japanese?

    I'm trying to find hits for 私にとって plus 理解できない on google and am finding nothing. Am also asking my local Japanese grammar buff and he is unsure of this too.
