I made it! It’s been a little over a week since I arrived and the transition has been pretty smooth so far. I have a lot of friends here helping me learn the ropes.
I’m still trying to get set up here, so posts will be irregular for some time. Please be patient as I try to get the ball rolling on this project.
A lot of people have been asking me questions since I arrived, so I’m going to leave a mini-FAQ here to answer them.
Where are you living in Japan?
I’m in Aichi Prefecture (hence the blog name). In other words, not Tokyo.
What are you doing in Japan?
For those who haven’t heard the news, I have a job as an ALT (Assistant Language Teacher). In a nutshell, I’m helping the English teachers of my town with their classes.
What school level are you teaching?
Middle school, for the most part, but I will also be teaching classes for adults in the community. There’s also a chance I will also be helping at the elementary school level.
When do you start work?
Beginning of April.
What’s the time difference there?
Japan is 16 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time.
