It's been a while since I put up anything. I've actually been focused on improving my Japanese and looking into Japanese culture and necessary information for everyday life. I came across a seminar for TESOL Certification that's going on in October. I thought we'd give it a try.
Although, previously I never really gave much thought to being a teacher. I don't know if I'd be good at it or not. I don't even know if I'd like it or not. All I know is that we have enjoyed trying to teach people about some things. I like to be helpful, and I feel like if I can do it in a more meaningful way, whether I officially get to teach, or help my boyfriend plan and even teach English at a church or something, it would be a whole lot more worth it. Maybe my sense of adventure I didn't know I had got the best of me in thinking it'd be good to visit Japan, a foreign country with kanji every which way and odd and particular customs, but we'll see.
In any case, maybe if I find more useful things, I'll put them up in my Japanese Resources section; I did add a couple.
Here's the class: Oxford Seminars
It seems like they not only give you the certification, but help you to prepare for interviewing and such. You can also get a $100 discount for signing up early, and a $50 discount for referring a friend.
I can't tell you if it IS good or not yet, but maybe after we take it I'll comment on it. I won't assume it is just because it says "Oxford".
