わたし の しょうがっこう YOUKOSO, WILLKOMMEN, BIENVENIDOS, DOBRO POSHALOVAT', KARIBU!!! (to "my" Japanese elementary schools) カタリ-ナ

Monday, April 04, 2005

Hello and welcome to my little site: it's supposed to give you a glimpse of my life in Japan and my work with the elementary school kids.


Last September I started an ALT teaching job at four elementary schools in the Tobata and Wakamatsu wards of Kitakyushu. I took over from Marcus-sensei, an Australian who, somewhat unexpectedly for the company, left for another job in Osaka. The company OWLS (One World Language Services) which is based in San Francisco and Kitakyushu employs not only native speakers but also a number of teachers from countries whose first language isn’t English. They are messengers of cross-cultural communication with English as their lingua franca. During the last term the company had teachers from India, Nepal, Uganda, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Germany.
