  2. Re: 6 classes a day at elementary school, plus before school class.

    I thought it was a troll at first but why go on this site and create this nonsense then? And it was my first post since 2016 on this site :'(



    What's the reference then? Am I missing something?
  3. Re: 6 classes a day at elementary school, plus before school class.

    How long is a period? I've had different times in different schools: 35, 40, and 55 minutes so obviously 6 classes of 55 minutes vs. 6 classes of 35 minutes makes a big difference (or are most...

    Re: 2017 Hopefuls/applicants self-intro thread

    I admire your persistence, but after failing three times I'd say there's something major that's affecting your chances and it's best finding out what that is and fixing it or accepting that you're...

    Thanks GodInStrafeMode ;)
  7. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    I know a Japanese native with 10 years' experience being a translator/interpreter in Madrid (SP-JP) whose Spanish level is second to none and she finds it tough. There are some good periods followed...
  8. Re: Teaching languages apart from English on JET

    Thanks Mothy. I guess the thinking should be: don't expect it, but that through some luck/circumstances it could be a possibility.
  9. Re: Teaching languages apart from English on JET

    Thanks for your feedback Fantasylife.

    I was just an idea, but way too ambitious I guess! Someone on another thread from Canada mentioned teaching some French as well as English and I heard some...
  10. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    Well, I'm asking that because I have worked as a translator and interpreter before and if someone had a not so high level I would not want to trust them with any kind of serious translation or...
  11. Teaching languages apart from English on JET

    Hi guys,

    I am looking to possibly apply to the JET programme for next year’s intake. I have a little experience teaching English and have just become a licensed secondary school Spanish and...
  12. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    BifCarbet, what was your Japanese level when you arrived to work as a CIR? I just wonder if people are CIRs and their level is like a low N2 what actual interpreting/tasks they would be given?


    ...
  13. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    Are you currently working as a Spanish interpreter? If you are it's worth considering whether the experience as an interpreter albeit in another language is worth more than saying ALT-ing. I guess...
  14. Re: IELTS level needed for non-native English speakers to teach English in Japan

    Are you a non-native speaker? From what I'm aware not many NNSs come on here as it's primarily a JET programme, so maybe other forums are better (?).

    However, I'd say it would probably depend on...
  15. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    Good to know. Thanks BifCarbet!



    But which JLPT test would you do in December? I mean if your level is currently a weak N3, doing an N2 exam in 4 months sounds quite the task to me. How many...
  16. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    Yeah, I mean if you look at what I wrote earlier regarding a CIR's duties:



    The ones highlighted above sound quite ALT-ish! And btw, how's your cooking? LOL. Oh, Eibig-san please cook us...

    Re: Teaching English to adults

    It's been a while since your post. How is this going? I think this is a good opportunity and you can put it down on your CV showing you've experience teaching both kids and adults.

  20. Re: CIR Requirements and How Many are Sent Each Year

    So, what is it you are aiming for? Going from a weak N3 to N2 for the upcoming application procedure? The interviews would be in January/February 2017, so it would probably not give you much time...

    Re: Some frustrations I need help with.

    I understand your concerns of course, but don't understand why it's a problem using Japanese in the office if you're more than capable? When I lived in Spain and France I loved it if someone...

    I got C2 level in Spanish (which is actually one level higher than N1, according to Common European Framework of Reference for Languages - Wikipedia, the free...
