    Hell my best JTE did not even study English in college she just watched shiploads of Seseme Street.
    What the hell is wrong with you?
    Also, have you never heard of commas?

    I find it ironic that people are always going on about being "overqualified" for ALT work but many ALTs can't string together a coherent sentence.

    Actually I speak mostly from my experience in Korea. There I did the ALT thing, taught college level (which i was horrid at, surprise), taught Juku and a few other things. I taught with and shared students with a wide degree of teachers/instructors so it was easy to make judgments.

    Unless you've just had a stroke and forgotten English, you're probably overqualified for JET.
    I thought it was time to use a sig

    Did you teach in Korea in a program or did you find the job yourself?
