I'm curious to find out if any of you are interested in becoming teachers..I know I am. If you wanna go to Japan and have a blast, this is the best way to do it! Those guys take care of everything, from plane tickets to finding you a cheap home and a job as an assistant teacher. If you want more info, go to www.jetprogramme.org which is the program's official page. On the other hand, if you'd like a taste of what being a JET feels like, you should log on www.silversow.com/quebec, a blog from one of my friends which has spent the past two years in Japan as a JET. You'll have to scroll down a bit because his most recent entries talk about his trip to the rest of Asia, which is still really cool..Nice videos too. 8)

Yep, the JET program is very known here :) I think because the University of Hawaii is affiliated with it? Not sure. . .but it's a good program. A friend of mine did it and he recommends it. Best of all, they want you to not speak any Japanese.

I'd love to do it, but my boyfriend's not too big on me going abroad. Guess he'll have to take me on vacations there ;)

JET is also very well known here in Australia as well. I also know some people who've done it too and they rave about it.
Take a look at this too. This guy did it and has some hilarious stories to share :D.

Dunno why I haven't seen this before...
I plan to apply to the programme at the end of next year (after my degree ends).
I have researched most things concerning the application process and the programme itself, and think it's a much better way to get to Japan rather than the Eikawa route (these are the businesses that teach english rather than affiliating with normal schooling). I am also currently an active member on the 'I think I'm lost' forum http://www.ithinkimlost.com/


When I went to Japan a few years ago (when I first joined this forum) I stayed with a JET ALT (assistant learning teacher- what you apply for) and liked the look of the lifestyle.
As they famously say in JET though, ESID (every situation is different), so really the experience of finding out is a big pull factor.
A great way to visit Japan for the long term, and earn money at the same time.
