How does /co/ feel about Let's Speak English?

cute

I really like it, and I've pretty much only seen positive discussion about it in threads. Hell, I learned about it on /a/, and they weren't even trashing it.

Started reading it because of pissing off Aaron Diaz, stayed for the weird rice monster mascot guy with the nose mouth.

That's not really better. Also that looks like a terrible slouch she's developing.

She made fun of Aaron Diaz.

He publicly called her out for it.

The entire internet turned on him and he vanished for like 3 months.

>>77809469

Extremely cute. It's neat to see someone's experiences in a smaller town in Japan since it seems most Americans focus on Tokyo and its big-city weirdness.
>>
>>77809693
That's the joke.
>>77809783
She made that.
Diaz bitched at her for being passive agressive.
She then called him on the fact she didn't name him, or even imply him in anyway so basically he outed himself on being guilty of everything in that comic.
Everyone then jumped on him for being a douche.

>>77809805

She draws everyone kind of generically, herself included.

It's cute and funny, but the more I read the more I suspect her of being a bad teacher.

She's not really a fully qualified teacher, more like an aide in a coteaching setting it seems like to me.
>>
I think if you have to draw yourself cute you're probably not very cute
>>
>>77813046
She's really just there so that kids get used to hearing how English sounds when spoken by Americans. Otherwise they'd probably have trouble understanding English if they only used to listening for Engrish. She could just sit in front of the class rambling about video games for an hour and still be doing what she's paid to do. The actual teaching is more of a formality.
>>
>>77810390
She's a funny talented artist and now literal rocket scientist.
She's too good for anyone who posts on 4chans.

I spent five years learning how to become a teacher so I could get a job and live up to the very high standards of education we have here. I spend up to ten hours every day preparing so that I can give my pupils the best possible learning experience, and my native language is not English.

This weeaboo goes to Japan and can't even manage to teach middle schoolers the difference between morning, midday and night, nor does it seem likely that she has any peers reviewing her work and teaching methods or holding her to any standards whatsoever. Despite this she probably still gets paid better than I do.

Dude, it's elementary foreign language. Any elementary class in any language is "what are the colors of the rainbow?" and "what are the days of the week?" I learned motherfucking songs and shit about weather.

I had a friend go teach English in China. My friend could only speak English, had no education after high school and was paid to teach elementary children English.

You have to be pretty lacking in self awareness to actually want to sound like a shitty anime character when talking in Japanese

and she seems to realize that she's a sad nerd, so she probably talks like a normal person

There is another teacher that shows up sometimes. Also she teaches small kids. It doesn't require much as you basically just show them cards with names of things and teach some simple sentences.

ES, JHS, and SHS are all a little different, with some overlap - but even then you get variance.

At one school:

I have fairly free reign in my first year classes, and significant input on my second year. Third year classes use me as a thesaurus and grammar dictionary.

That said, there's still pressure to make your classes grammar oriented as to prepare the students for the center tests in their third year. I have largely worked to side-step this measure as teaching grammar academically in a students L2 is stupid. So most of my activities are conversation oriented, usually based around a specific expression (taken from their grammar book and supplemented with sanity) and coupled with a usage example in context.

At another:

We do games and such (per the request of my co-teacher), but in a single class of 30, maybe 5 students are motivated. I do my best to help them. They're improving.

I'm JHS and seems a bit different. My school the JTs decide on everything and make most the desicions on what I and the students do in class. This usually is repeat after me exercises, walking around as they work on stuff helping them with mistakes as I see them, and doing demonstrations for activities they are to do that class with the JT. Only time I'm straight teaching/lecturing and not assisting the english teacher is culture stuff like what thanksgiving is with a presentation where they get excited about sweat potatoes with marshmellows.

Nova. But not the main one, a franchise owner using the name. Base pay of 280k, rent around 40k, with overtime usually get between 290-300k each month.

But yeah, my friends who are ALT's teach like 2 lessons a day if that working Monday to Friday, I teach 9 working Wednesday-Sunday so harder to have a social life. With no paid vacation for 6 months, and working all public holidays.

I'm saving a shitton of money, but think I'll head home before 6 months are up, Japan isn't for me.

You are probably right, but I'm ready to move on, I already have plans, thanks for the advice though.

I'm intensely studying German and plan to move there next, perhaps to teach English, or perhaps to get a real job if I can get my language ability high enough.

Plus I quite like the Japanese staff in my branch and wouldnt want to fuck her over by leaving earlier, that said she leaves in 2 weeks so depending on how the new staff is like will affect if I can stick it out to the 6 month mark.

Borrowing the books we need (and driving to get them from the depository), making reservations for the computer labs, organizing the work-groups, not even counting the printing, hole-punching and stapling to make individual copies for between 21-30 pupils in each class, which takes forever.

Japan is very different. I'm pretty sure they are given a strict set of guidelines to follow when teaching children, with very little room for deviation. If the kids don't learn anything it can hardly be considered her fault. She's just a cog.

That's not too different from American high school language classes, I mean most kids just remember enough to pass the tests and then forget all of it when they don't need it any more. I can't name anyone I know who can remember much other than "my name is" from their foreign language classes.

I think anon is saying it's irrelevant since Diaz is shit on for being shitty, whereas Mary is shit on despite not being shitty.
Though really she's shit on because they think she draws herself cuter than she is but really she's just generically drawing herself like everyone else.
Personally it could just be a case of /co/ thinking with their dicks and assuming that Cute!Mary is supposed to be attractive because they're attracted to it.

You're an absolute fucking idiot. Like, painful. And incredibly bitter.

Like it or not this teaching abroad system has existed for quite awhile and will continue to exist as is. It is infinitely more about interacting with a native English speaker than it is about teaching English, and these programs seem to have some support, which should maybe indicate to your socially inept ass that people who are brighter than you see some value in them.

Rather than getting pissy about other people why not focus on yourself? You are all you can change in this world, anon, so forget getting bitter about what other people do and maybe try to find a little happiness for yourself.

Dobson has routinely showed everyone that he doesn't understand these things because he doesn't make an effort to: He just forms an opinion and runs with it. He'd be able to understand these things, including the Nintendo character things, if he put any amount of thought or research into it, but he refuses to. He's willfully obtuse to portray things he doesn't like as stupid.

She teaches like 7 year olds for 1 school year.
It makes sense that a former student that hasn't actually studied, or even spoke the language, for a year or two wouldn't remember any greeting other than the one that they always used while in their morning class.

If you just take 1 mandatory course, and then drop that shit once you don't need it anymore you're not going to actually retain much of what you learned.
This is true for the majority of people regardless of country, teacher, or subject.

Dude, just be an ALT. It sounds like you're hurting yourself for zero gain. She'll be gone before the start of a new job, and you'd not have the secondary culture shock of moving to yet another nation.

She's doing a job that Japanese language education has space for, drawing in a native speaker to do some basic lessons with the students so they hear the language in its native means of speaking and get some practice within that context. Which I wish I'd had in high school, my college language courses had some native speakers as the instructors and it made the verbal portions of exams much simpler for me.

I mean I still suck as an Amerifat, but less so than I would have otherwise I guess

Jet is the best alt program but is a government one so has one big downside, they assign foreigners where they need them, the middle of bum fuck nowhere six to nine hours from somewhere. Other than that, nothing but good things from them. Oh unless you're like 30, they don't hire old fucks.

Middle school is unpleasant for everyone. Everybody's at that age where they're starting to have adult emotions, thoughts and ambitions, but nobody has any control over them.

High-schoolers are nuts too, but they've at least had a little more time to bring their feelings under control.

That's sort of how language teaching worked at my college, actually. We had meetings with a mostly-bilingual native speaker two or three days a week and were supervised by a professor on loan from another university who saw us every other week. Japanese, Finnish, even Swahili...it allowed for study of conceivably any language since all you needed was a college-aged foreigner and a professor willing to drive a few hours to make a few hundred bucks.

There are also word choices and sentence construction that verge on rude without using certain words. They use them on tv all the time to signal villains or badasses without pissing off the censors. You should read some actual books in English, too. Youtube and 4chan will teach you mainly gutter speak.

you dont really know much about the japanese english system? NO kids learn how to speak english because they're too scared to make mistakes so they don't try at all. It's a huge problem in japan to the point where its a big deal to have them do public speaking because they've created a generation of people terrified of doing public speaking because they're afraid to screw up. Even kids who are fluent in english (english-speaking parents) will deliberately speak poor english to fit in with their peers.

Well, yeah, that's SNSD. On the other hand, I'm not even sure if Japanese and Koreans are distinguishable at a glance.

There are differences but they are not absolute. These are average faces according to Korean research. From left to right Korean, Japanese and Thai.

There are some traits that are most common on specific groups, even on specific groups inside a single country, even a country like Japan. But this doesn't means that 100% of the people from that country/region have those traits so most Japanese people don't have a Korean like face but a few do. The same goes to China. Funny is that I have blood from two different Japanese groups and everybody think I'm from a different place. Seems like Chinese from the North think I look Chinese, the ones from the south says I don't look Chinese I look Japanese, Japanese don't say much about this but I guess they assume I'm Japanese, Some Koreans also think I'm Korean and some people think I'm mixed with westerns.
