A letter for ALTs
Nice to meet you! My name is Yohei . I'm a college student who is majoring English. Today, I'd like to tell you what you have to pay attention while you are in Japan as an English teacher.
First of all, you shouldn't be passive but active. As you know, some Japanese students are a liitle bit shy, quiet. With your help, they will enjoy talking with you.
Once you get used to custom and culture in Japan, it will be a good idea to study Japanese. It is really good way to know so many difficulty Japanese students have in studying English.
Finally, the most important thing living in Japan is enjoying your stay. Yes, we have this kind of proverb both in Japanese and in English.
'' When in Rome, do as the Romans do.''
Have a good time in Japan!
