Go East, Young Man

A US newspaper report indicates that the English teaching gig in Japan may have lost some of the appeal it had in the past. The Battle Creek Enquirer, a local newspaper in Michigan, reported that only two applications were received for the one spot available teaching English in its sister city of Takasaki. The contract is similar to that of the JET Program, based on a one-year contract renewable up to three years. One of the applicants, a recent university graduate said, "I've had an interest in it for a while. I've been involved in programs dealing with Japanese for the past four or five years."
