Re: New Home

Good luck! Hope you enjoy it. I know I really loved working at elementary schools, just be on the look-out for the dreaded Kancho. Those elementary school boys LOVE to kancho the new ALT! :shock:

Re: How to ask 'Have you ever done something'?

The way to ask about experience is to use the phrase 「Xをしたことはありますか?」or informally 『Xをしたことある?』
