New Episode Coming Soon

For those of you who keep up with Jukin' Japan, I apologize for the lack of recent episodes. Last week I came down with a nasty cold...strangely the only symptoms were a slightly achey ear and a low fever, but it was enough to dissuade me from extracurricular pursuits.  As well, on Thursday and Friday I had a "business trip" to Kobe - basically teacher training. It wasn't awefully interesting or productive, but I did come away from it with a few good teaching techniques that I picked up from other ALTs/JTEs. And as much as I like this program, these gatherings always remind me how much like high school it is (thanks for giving words to that feeling, Dylan).

P.S. Maybe I'll explore this further sometime, but Japanese doctors give craptons of pills and stuff for even a cold. And they say America is over-medicated.
