So, immediately following local orientation, was another set of mandatory meetings. The SETY conference. Its a 10 day conference for Japanese Teachers of English (JTEs) but us JETs only have to go for the last four days. We are there to give the JTEs a native speaker to talk and do activities with. Oddly, the conference spans over a weekend, so it was split. Two days one week and then two days the next.

I'll spare you the details of the conference. Was your basic conference with discussions, skits, debate, brainstorming, games, and all that good stuff. While a bit boring, I actually quite enjoyed getting to speak with JTEs about various issues. Everyone in the group was rather forthcoming and I feel we all made a connection. Yay group!
