• So, you're teaching (or thinking of teaching) English in Japan. Can you retain your personal identity? Will you slip into weird cutoms/habits? Are you annoying and/or smothering your co-workers and/or fellow foreigners with your enthusiasm (or complete lack thereof)? Has your supervisor had it with you? Find out with this test.

    a quick glossary:

    JET - japanese exchange and teaching programme (currently one of the more popular ways to get a job teaching in japan); also short-hand term for someone in the program

    genki - energetic, happy, enthusiastic, etc.

    sugoi - wow!
