    Yea, I've heard that, too. I don't say it because I'm scared of mixing up American Indians and Indian-Americans.

    so touching Japanese on the head is no good?

    I was a teacher in Korea for 3 years and they don't have any qualms about stuff like that.

    I'm pretty sure the panel knew my intentions~ we all laughed and had a good time with the role play~ Even the director got in on it by acting like he was one of the little kids. ^^

    Not so sure about Japan, but just as a random tidbit of knowledge, it's not good practice in Thailand ^_^

    I won $500 at Mohegan Sun back like, 2 years ago - it helped finance my trip to Tokyo. I love just going there, sitting at the video poker machines at the bar playing penny games and collecting free drinks.

    In fourth grade we were learning about Native Americans, and the teacher or someone wrote Indians on the board, but they misspelled it and put "indains".

    I had a very easy interview. For all the sweating I was doing in preparation for the worst, I was very pleasantly surprised at how relaxed and friendly my panel was.

    I interviewed at the DC Embassy with Panel H. Most of the 20 minutes they actually spent on my SoP, where I extensively wrote about my teaching credentials and my travels as a long-distance backpacker through Japan. They loved some of the stories I had time to tell, and really expressed how good they thought my personality and background would be for JET. It's the first interview I walked out of feeling flattered instead of grilled, which was very unusual for me.

    They asked me for a brief introduction in Japanese, as well as what my favorite food was. They also asked, "What single item would you bring from the United States for use in a lesson?" I told them I would probably bring a tourist magazine -- In Japanese and English -- of the state I was raised in, Maryland. I think they liked the answer. They also asked why I wanted to do JET, and how it fit in to my longer-term career goals. They never asked me to do any singing or on-the-fly teaching, which I'm thankful for.

    All in all, a positive experience! I met a lot of other friendly applicants as well, which was icing on the cake.

    Now the hardest part is the wait. :\

    Ohhh, a good idea. I was thinking of bringing a photo album, but this is a much better idea.


    How did you gain the respect of your students?
    By enforcing and backing the rules set by the primary teacher. I hope that the main English teacher will have good classroom management skills, such as clear rules and clear consequences. However, I am open to all kinds of classroom management strategies, and understand that maintaining a clear hierarchy is very important to maintaining classroom order.

    ...is what teacher school has taught me to say, but I'm struggling to make it sound positive/attractive.
