Dorking in Surrey, UK. There appears to be quite a few jazz nights going on round here and I'm also 30 miles from the centre of London so I'm spoilt for choice really Cool

I dont think I posted here yet.

I live in Nara, Japan. Less than an hour from Osaka, 2 hours from Kobe and Kyoto. Good jazz all over the place, but Im a bit too lazy to go see it. And if only I could speak more Japanese so I could learn more from them all! They're dead friendly!

Oh, and Im from Ireland.

Well, I was always interested in the culture basicly. Then I saw a good job oppurtunity as an English teacher here (JET programme) so I went for it and got it - which kinda surprised me. They put me in a senior high school in a small town here in Nara.

I came straight out of university to this job with no teaching experience so I learnt a lot very quickly about teaching English, and I feel pretty comfortable in the job now. Im gonna be here....for at least another 2 years as thats how long I can extend my contract on this job. I love Japan though. There are a lot of oppurtunities and people are happy to have me around, and I don't have anything going on in Ireland, so there's no reason to leave.

Thats it basicly. I only recently got into jazz, but I was happy to realise what a great scene there is out here.

So you have to leave Japan in two years, or get a new job there?
JET program?
I'm about to leave uni soon (electronics), and some people have mentioned teaching English abroad. Could be fun! But I don't speak any foreign languages, so I don't know how I'd communicate! If you've got any info on it, I'd appreciate it Smile Feel free to pm or whatever.. Have a great day! Very Happy
