    I think the Cambridge CELTA office is in Kobe, isn't it? They hold courses there as far as I understand. I don't know if it's something you can do part time, or you need to be there for the full month or so. Have you tried the British Council? They might have courses. You can do CELTA online as well.

    Where can I do it online? I ahve never seen it offered online. I contacted Kobe, they said I would have to come to their site. That is not convenient at all.

    Yea, it looks like I stand corrected. I've seen online options but non of them seem to be available from Japan. According to these people - http://language-resources.co.jp/teachers/ - the Kobe is the only approved center for CELTA in Japan. I find that hard to believe, to be honest.

    First check the CELTA website: http://www.cambridgeenglish.org/teaching-english/teaching-qualifications/celta/, and also take a look at this article: https://www.city-cost.com/blogs/helloalissa/wroRM-living_money_education What is your reason for wanting CELTA certification at this point? Are you hoping to level up in your job/qualify for something specific? I rarely see CELTA requested for jobs in Japan. If you're thinking about teaching ESL elsewhere, it might be useful. I haven't done it, but know it's a full time month long program and costs over 200,000 yen. It's also of better quality than a TESOL certificate because of the required observations and feedback. I heard that part is super helpful... but you already have a lot of experience.

Amazon hits and misses

Most of my purchases on Amazon have been household goods and groceries. Kitchen equipment, rugs, laundry and bath stuff. For food, mostly whole bean coffee, condiments, and dried or canned foods. So my question is, for kitchen, bath, and laundry, what purchases have you made that were good value for money? What grocery items do you get?

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.
