Konichiwa mina-san Tako-desu!
You have stumbled upon the rambling of a dude from Melbourne who has somehow found himself living in Kobe-shi, Japan as an ALT with the JET Program(me).
So Just what is the JET Program??
The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme seeks to enhance internationalization in Japan by promoting mutual understanding between the people of Japan and those of other nations. The Programme aims to enhance foreign language education, and promote international exchange at the local level through the fostering of ties between Japanese youth and foreign youth alike.
The JET Programme started in 1987 with co-operation from participating country governments. In 2011, there were 4,330 participants in the Programme from 39 countries. So in 2012 the JET Program will be celebrating its 26th year.
Damn your life looks fracking awesome! How can I become a JET?
Application for participation in the JET Programme is a long and competitive process. However, the rewards of being chosen are well worth the effort. Successful applicants will receive 1 to 5 year contract with by far the best program to live and work in Japan which is funded by the Japanese Government.
I assure you its no easy road, a good start would be to check out some of my first posts about the application process and also read up on the official JET Program website: http://www.jetprogramme.org/
