Greetings from Scotland.

Post by WeeFugu » Sun 04.25.2010 2:06 pm

Hello there,

My name is weefugu and I love Japan(ese). I used to live there for 4 years teaching English and my wife is Japanese. We are now living in Scotland and I am a primary school teacher. I am dreaming of returning to Japan one day though, to teach at an international school.

I am here not only because I adore Japan and all it cultural wonders, but I NEED to brush up on my Japanese. I passed JLPT 4 just before I moved back to the UK, but my Japanese has taken a nose dive since then. I speak only English in my house, as my wife and I are trying to develop my son's bilingual brain (he is now 6 mos old!). Anyway, I just wanted to poke my head in and say 'Hi'.

Hope to make some good friends here.

Your child is so lucky, I wish I had the Benefit of Japanese speaking parents. In my case I wish anyone with in 100 miles spoke Japanese. Which reminds me, about of an international school. Temple University Japan is where I plan to attend, maybe you should look it over. I do not know if they need another English teacher, but why not look?

All the best! :D
