I am mixed about the new Eigo Note series. My BOE doesn't have a clue what is going on, and asking questions doesn't help much. The good thing that has come out of it is that schools that I only went to once a semester or once a year are now having me come a few times a month. But I am not sure what they expect to happen. I heard from a private ALT that my town is going to contract out my job to a private company once I leave, so I have a feeling that for the next year my job is going to be to help my town ES teachers in the transition to the new system.

My biggest problem is that most of my students know a good amount of English. There is no way that I can force the students to spend a month going over greetings when they know it all already (which may be what the other teachers want from me).
