How does /co/ feel about Let's Speak English?
That's the joke.
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.
That other chick
That one dude
Maybe it's a case of them running in weeb ciricles and therefore pick up bad fashion cues from them.
I like it, but it can't decide if it wants high stakes drama or low stakes highjinks.
That tiger-splicer just came back from being exploded only missing one of her Sailor Moon twin-tails.
Yo homes I haven't read that comic in YEARS and I don't even remember you this character is and why has he/she important
Anyway It's totally a low stakes highjinks story that likes to act like a drama as a joke which is why I lost interest in it
I actually like Kiwi Blitz. Sleepless domain seems to have potential too. I was kind of surprised how they went all end of season 1 of Sailor Moon in just one chapter. Kind of interested to see where it goes from there.
Yeah but this is /co/ so...
HAMBEAST UGLY CUNT ARGLE BARGLE
she looks as average as she does in the comics.
Bread you said? Different supermarket this time.
I still think she's cute. Almost reminds me of pic related
That's too manly a topic for this cutesy comic's thread.
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.
Trudy Cooper basically drew herself as a dude to make Ivan for Oglaf.
But she doesn't look shit like Ivan.
>they allow her to teach children
I guess its true that all of japan are perverts
>tfw been reading AZ since it started when I was in high school

This looks like a requirement garment if you want to be a douchy internet reviewer who has no subjective opinion whatsoever. I'd pretty much avoid people who wear them along with those who wear fedoras and trilbies.
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.
So what you're saying is... you've made some bad decisions with your life?
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.
It's not like she's interacting with university students that are going to go study abroad.
Turns out, you can't teach people a language properly just because you speak it. She is wasting the kids time and wasting the school's money. Most people would probably feel pretty lousy about that.
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. As another anon said teaching English in most Asian countries is mainly just so they understand how the words are supposed to sound not be an actual English professor.
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.
Kate Beaton is actually cuter than how she draws herself, I think.
Not to be that guy who makes it all about that or whatever
>anons fawning at the feet of 4/10 women in a cult-like fashion because in their relative ugliness they seem more attainable than actual beautiful women. Ignoring the fact that they will never, ever get to fuck them.
Business as usual, Master Bruce?
There was a guy named tinytrip who responded to every girl posting with "pls be in london"
one time he was the first time responding to some 'girl' in booty shorts and it turned out to be a dude when he bent over and you could see his testicles. That's really all there is to it.
>The artist draws herself to look pretty!
>Actual art is a very simple drawing with eyes, glasses, mounth and nose.
Fuck you guys act like shits the next laser cheese or something.
Laser Cheese is on a level of its own.
This also reminds me of one of the old stories.
>In an ichinensei class, one boy was heckling her the whole time. He kept saying that she should marry me, because she’s still single at 27 and she doesn’t want to die alone, right? She gave him a harsh, “Shut up kid,” in Japanese, and this almost worked. A few minutes later, he leaned in and asked her to come closer, which she did. When she was close enough, he asked, “Are you still a virgin?”
>The smack she gave him was instantaneous. I mean, the words had barely escaped his mouth and already her hand was on its way back from having whacked him. I’ve never seen anyone move that fast.
I have a masters in secondary science education and she's doing the job she's being paid to do. She's doing some things well and some things that could do with improvement, but hey, that's literally all of us and if you think otherwise you need to spend more time reflecting.
I don't think they are. They can scream their lungs out at students but not that. For example the classic anime holding bucket of water punishment was disallowed for being too mean.
Ok, never read it before. This is too adorable and feel good.
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait, its a woman who draws fucking Oglaf?
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.
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.
>tfw I am an eikaiwa teacher in Japan and
starting to dislike my job and want to go home but making myself stay for another 3 months for the money.
5 year old's actually do do that kancho thing. Adults are great, kids are little shits.
There's your first mistake. Eikaiwa is like hell in Japan. Get an ALT job like Mary-sensei. Which company? Is it one of the big shit ones? If so that was your second mistake.
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.
>Japan isn't for me.
I have literally known at least 4 people at eikaiwas say the exact same thing disheartened by their work, decide to try ALT and immediately love Japan again and lose their depression. Just switch jobs. You can apply nowish and start in April.
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.
>you are not an native English speaker
>no one is interested to pay to learn your language
>your country doesn't even have work holiday deals with other countries
>Japan regards your nationality as cheap labor and criminals
Fuck. I wish I was american.
I mean I wouldn't mind, there's not a lot to talk about yet, but I don't really see the problem with mentioning an authors other webcomics in a thread about one of their webcomics.
I have four classes I teach most days, four different subjects. That's a little over 2 hours preparation for each. Finding relevant material at the archives, making it myself where I can't find any. 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.
Disregard this guy
He sucks incredibly amounts of cock. I'd accuse him of being a failed teacher but he literally has no idea whatsoever and I doubt he finished middle school.
I don't know. Is like a dead stare with a feeling of superiority.
>Person draws themself as better looking, seen as self-centered
>Person draws themself uglier, seen as looking for pity
>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.
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.
>This weeaboo goes to Japan and can't even manage to teach middle schoolers the difference between morning, midday and night
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.
Who the fuck cares if she's cute or not? She can draw herself however she wants.
>haha, look at those stupid jocks
>wow, these D&D nerds expect me to think?
>and maybe try to find a little happiness for yourself.
Welcome to 4chan, where people find amusement in pissing others off. But seriously though, you sound really depressed with that amount of projection going on. Maybe get some help.
Group of three girls who want to argue classroom rules with me rather than actually following instructions and feel like hijacking the entire damn class to get attention on themselves to complain.
>but that's not faaaaiiiiir
Tough shit. Grow up.
>Wasn't this the guy complaining about modern day versions of Nintendo characters?
>Why the hell is he using Advent Children Cloud, rather than FF7 Cloud?
Because Dobson is an idiot.
>Used to teach summer camp for 6-8 year olds in a rich nehiborhood,

>I turn around to give my trademark smile and I see him standing next to a frail yuppie hunched over on the floor crying

>I quit that job that week.
I wasn't even commenting on the personality shift, but the outfit.
And this is the guy who couldn't get over Samus' hair not being green. (When that wasn't even true when she wasn't blonde. It was just the result of having the Varia suit. It'd be like claiming Mario only wore white)
No, and I don't want to know. The reason I will never have kids is that 19 out of 20 kids are wonderful things that will enrich your life beyond belief but that 20th kid will fucking ruin you. I will always be salty that Lieberman burned the list of Hitler kids at the end of boys from brazil
>wear hat to look fashionable
Top kek. The only reason he ever wore a hat was to hide his bald-spot. Same reason most people insist on wearing hats these days despite spending no time in the sun.
>Why the hell is he using Advent Children Cloud, rather than FF7 Cloud?
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.
Husbandofag (/a/ drawfag) made it.
He made 27 strips and some misc. pics.
There have been at least 17 other strips made by other anons + other misc. pics.
/a/ had two large Guy Jean threads yesterday with new content.
Nah, Japanese schools are mostly scams anyway.
> mfw I owned two of those in high school
> actually wore it outside sometimes
Yeah, so the artist can imagine causing so many hard dicks. It sounds like you need some remedial study in perversion.
>how you escape that?
Draw yourself as a non-human.
I presume it has a misspelling in the sign.
>can't even manage to teach middle schoolers
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.
Or go to Germany I guess. I'm not your supervisor, do whatever
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.
>I own that exact hat
>faded from years of wearing
>has a motor oil stain on the bill
>some worn places all around
>I keep it in the pocket of my ratty-ass jacket at all times
I fucking love that hat.
The memories are flooding back. A simpler time, when anime was new and exciting. When 4chan was fresh and bizarre. When my dick was energetic and the same color as my legs.
Where have the years gone?
Senior year, I had a 24 year old English teacher, and I'd hug her every day.
She looked like a brunette Taylor Swift. I had her phone number but we only texted about school work that I needed help with.
We didn't fuck, no relationship or anything of course
I miss her
mary confirmed training her students to be terrorists
All the way from basic to high school most english teachers were not much better than Google translate is now, some worse. At least google translate know how to pronounce correctly. Fuck Brazilian education system. I learned my english with video games, 4chan and youtube.
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.
I was a train-wreck in middle school.
Better haircut, glasses and clothes and she can get much prettier. She is not ugly and ugly girls manage to get pretty with the right hair, clothes and make-up so I think she would be pretty just with the right hair, glasses and clothes.
>this asspained teacher shit again
I swear to god it's copypasta, otherwise it's the same masochistic self-loathing cunt typing slight variations of the same paragraph every time this thread appears
it's like the negromancer only not funny and kind of depressing
seriously? I thought the Japs absolutely hated pinoys.
I sure as hell know it goes the other way. Knew an old Filipino guy who laughed as he described how many Japanese corpses there were lying around towards the end of WWII. "We needed bulldozers!"
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.
Mariko-san, Sazawa-sensei, you were good people.
yeah, one of
my mother-in-law'searliest memories is fleeing to hide in the mountains because Japanese soldiers were entering her area...I get the feeling there's more she's not telling us
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.
Most artists at least start out sane enough to be funny.
>Says they're american size and the girls start clapping.
Godspeed to her, spreading freedom and patriotism to those filthy subhumans. They might be civilized yet!
That was what I mean. Just because I know rude english doesn't means that I use it in every situation. Internet (4chan, wikipedia, etc) gave me vocabulary to understand english. After that I have read a lot from books to scientific articles.
>mfw I first found out Japanese don't unbutton their suit jacket when they sit down
>teach in Japan
>dress shirts and ties have colors like blue red green
>not just plain white dress shirts and black ties
>students think I'm the coolest and most /fa/ person alive
Yeah aside from Harajuku gothic group Japan has no fasion. Not bad fashion just no fashion at all.
Japs hate Chinese specifically, not communism. You might not be weeaboo enough for this ride.
Fashion is a traditional value they have given up.
>used to try to be normal- has given up
all the main girls are haunted by the ghosts of women who comitted suicide. They also all recieved an organ transplant from a certain girl that died in an accident. That girl's lingering pure optimism is enough to counter out the ghosts' malevolence.
It's cute. I also like her new comic Sleepless Domain.
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.
Ever been to /int/ before the generals took over? It was hilarious.
>About the actual comic: My friend finds the phrase "Senpai, please notice me" SUPER funny, and uses it whenever possible now. I was still startled that she had actually typed it down like a serious item of study XD Oh god what have I donnneee
Well, yeah, that's SNSD. On the other hand, I'm not even sure if Japanese and Koreans are distinguishable at a glance. Chinese I can tell apart sometimes, and all three of the languages are distinct enough, but Japan and Korea are just too geographically close, like looking at someone and figuring out if they're from Montana or Saskatchewan.
I guess, but that goes for any cosplayer in general, whatever their gender.
Quick question though, has anyone done a version where the 'creep' repels Dobson with a spray bottle or something?
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.
>tfw applied for JET
>reading these comics makes me both hype and scared
koreans tend to have rounder, flatter faces whereas japanese have more angular
and i would say more caucasianfeatures
Folk from JET and similar programs are fully recognized teachers, but the way English is taught is a little looser than most subjects and relies on drowning t he students in the language, preferably from a native speaker.
Don't forget that plastic surgery is extreme common in Korea.
