It’s the start of another week as an Assistant Language Teacher here in Hokkaido, Japan. Today, I’m back reporting at Rumoi High School.

I didn’t have any team teaching tasks today because it’s Day 1 of the Preliminary Examinations for the students.


I spent my day studying Japanese using the Visual Learning Japanese (VLJ) course. I also proofread the essays of the contestants for the essay writing contest and the script of those who joined the speech competition. Before going home, I submitted important documents to the Rumoi City Public Health Department Social Welfare Division.

Tuesday – Rumoi

It’s the second day of the Preliminary Examinations for the students here at Rumoi High School.

There were hundreds of moths in every corner of Rumoi City


Attended the Rumoi English Chat Club - Topic "My Summer Vacation"

That evening, I attended the Rumoi English Chat Club at Asuka. Our topic for today is “My Summer Vacation”. On my way, I was surprised that there were a lot of moths. It seems like Rumoi City had a moth infestation problem.

Rumoi City Library

I'm happy to see that Ella is into books.

When I got back home, my family and I drove to the Rumoi City Library so that Ella can borrow books. When we got back home, we watched the Netflix film Day Shift and then continued making the itinerary for the upcoming long weekends this month.

Overall, it was another fulfilling work week. I visited Rumoi High School, Embetsu Agricultural High School, and Teshio High School this week. I'm happy to have been able to help my JTEs with their lessons and also make fun activities for the students. I'm looking forward to what this weekend has to offer.
