I have heard about the JET Program vaguely in the past and have not thought about it much let alone visited their website until recently. For anyone who doesn`t know about this program, let me briefly explain. The JET program stands for The Japan Exchange and Teaching Program. JET is conducted by local authorities and other organizations of Japan in cooperation with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the Ministry of Foreign, Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Affairs. The objectives of the program aims to improve foreign language education in Japan and to encourage international exchange at the local level by fostering ties between Japanese youth and foreign youth.
I have been going to QB House for my monthly haircut ever since I came to Japan. I am not into the fashion trend and I have no preference in having my hairstyle to look a certain way. A nice clean cut is all I want. No shampoo, no gel, no shaving, and no messaging of my hair. Simple and fast. QB house was the answer, however.
I am using Rosetta Stone to learn Japanese and I must say the technique used is quite impressive than other software and online Japanese courses I have used in the past. Their technique is interactive by immersion you a language rather than translation and memorization drills. I have been using the software on an off for the past three months and my progress has been improving. However, it does get boring and repetitive at times which is why I wrote this subject.
I was surfing the net today and found this on the headline news. Real or fake? Looks pretty real to me. This sinkhole was believed to be created by flooding caused by tropical storm Agatha last Sunday, May 31, 2010. The hole measured approximately 200 feet in depth and 60 feet wide swallowing a three-story clothing factory and leaving one man missing.
