Sayonara/Farewell Party (July)


How are our mikans holding up in this hot, sticky summer?!
This is well overdue, but we would like to say a big thank you to everyone for taking the time to come to the farewell party and for making it such a wonderful event. We hope everyone enjoyed the beach, BBQ, talking, awards, Jessica’s heart-meltingly delicious cookies, the rain and dancing!

Speaking of dancing, thanks to the lovely Natalya, we were able to learn and perform a small part of the AKB48 Koisuru Fortune Cookie dance. We are happy to announce that we are officially a part of National AJET’s ‘Welcome to AJET’ video – yes, we made the cut!

Thanks to every one who danced with us to show the incoming JETs how active, positive, and supportive the JET community is (ESPECIALLY IN EHIME)!! So without further ado, here it is!!

*Special thanks to Megan for shooting/editing our video!*

It was great to be able to say a big good luck and farewell to all of the departing JETs. Ehime AJET wishes you all the best with your future endeavours and hopes that you come back to visit soon!

Educators: How to Be the Effective Communicator You Think You Are

Struggling with teaching in Japan? Finding communicating a little difficult? Bored? Well you’re not alone! Teresa Crane came to me with an article about guiding educators to be great and effective communicators.  It’s definitely a great read and if you’re already here why not give it a look? I promise you won’t regret it 🙂

Thanks Teresa for this great find!
