Before I came to Japan I could not possibly imagine what an enriching experience it would be teaching English at Smith’s English School at Fukushima, But here I am and my actual experience is way over the initial expectations.
There is not only the satisfaction as a person teaching another person the useful skill of English conversation, there is also a great reward as a teacher, coaching a student at one of the Smith’s English Schools in Japan.
Recently chatting with one of the students at Smith’s at Fukushima I explained the sentence “If you can imagine it you can do it” as a motivational slogan for her situation. Like all Japanese students, she needed to pass her University entrance examination, and as a passionate student of English conversation, who never failed to provide here “one point homework”, she managed a remarkable score in her University Entrance Examination English test.
I usually motivate myself with ” If you can imagine it you can do it” but a better choice in this case would be “if you can imagine it you can find it”
Have you ever thought about being an English teacher in Japan? I hadn’t before I came to Japan but maybe you, after reading this post will not be ready make the decision and join me in Japan.
How is winter in your country? Here is great, at Smith’s School of English we love the winter season. Sadly the change of season will start soon so probably you will not be able to enjoy winter in Japan this year, maybe next?
