Is this guys serious, trolling or does it really take no skill in being an English teacher in Japan?
>he created a new teaching methodology known as the "PRON method"
Why do you think pretty much all of the foreigners in Japan are English teachers? It's the only way for them to find actual work. The guys cleaning the toilets in the next door office building? Even those guys are more qualified than your average gaijin teaching English.
And since no one in Japan speaks actual English, they don't even realize what morons they're facing.
>Mouth training with intensive correction
On a more serious note, I don´t think this guy´s method is bad for pronunciation and such. when learning a new language with very different sounds from your native one you have a shitton of work to do if you want to sound half-decent.
Thad doesn´t mean that he doesn´t sound autistic
My friends make fun of me for dreaming of being an ALT in Japan but I honestly think it'd be a great experience. Fuck it, I know I'm a privileged white male with a bit of yellow fever but a few years in Japan would enrich my life experience so much - why stop yourself from doing something bewildering and exciting.
It's part of the indoctrination that comes along with going to an art school - but also I am definitely privileged because of how much more likely you are to get an ALT job if you're white.
Multiple times I've been offered jobs teaching English. Once it was Cambodia and Japan a few times. Each time I say I don't speak the native language at all and each time I'm told it doesn't matter.
God help those poor kids learning from whoever they did end up sending.
Being aware of your autism doesn't make your condition any better.

Resist it, you beta faggot. Most university programs drop shit like that on you because they're all hippies, commies or a combination. But you should have easily learned how to resist this just by browsing 4chan. Shitposting is great for this - these views are just like real life shitposting.
>I am definitely privileged because of how much more likely you are to get an ALT job if you're white.
Bullshit. English was invented by white people, and is a language for white people, and white people only. Period. If someone else wants to learn it, that's up to them. The reason you don't want niggers or others teaching english, is because they can't fucking speak it, and even when they can, they don't understand it. If they were capable of truly understanding something as advanced as a germanic language, they'd invented something similar themselves. But they didn't. They kept clicking and shit. Fucking hell, most african languages didn't even have a written form until recently, and even then it's so incredibly simplistic that you're basically speaking like a retarded child, even when you do it right.
In short, stop being a faggot. I'm not talking about this alpha/beta bullshit either, that was just to jolt you. Just stop being a weak willed faggot, and walk to your own drum.
Foreigners teaching english in Japan are doing only the pronunciation part. They don't teach grammar or spelling. And it seems to be working. I have been in Japan 10 years ago and I'm in Japan again now and seems like the fluency level of the Japanese improved considerably and the number of Japanese capable of speaking English improved as well.
>But you should have easily learned how to resist this just by browsing 4chan.
There isn't a point in resisting things unless you genuinely think they're untrue. If anything what makes him a faggot is his half-assed lip service to 4chan social norms.
>walk to your own drum.
That was kind of the whole point of my post. That I won't let the bullshit in my social circle impede me from doing what I want to do.
This is accurate though, whenever I post on 4chan I seem to unconsciously slip in try-hard buzzwordy language
Really illustrates how this kind of job really isn't for real teachers who would crave a certain amount of control over their students learning. I think this kind of job really suits people like me who are artistic and just want an excuse to get into Japan so we can paint all the beautiful/whacky shit.
Are you one of these self-diagnosed autists that explain all their failings at life with their made-up condition? Of course it's not your own fault, right? You never had a chance to begin with with such a serious mental illness!!
No way man, I'm just trying to be transparent about my thoughts. Fuck is anyone even human on this board?
if you're still human you should leave while you can
