    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.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.

Where to find an online job? (homebased)

Hi everyone! I am looking for an online job (preferably part time) that is home based since I'm a full time mom and I really can't commit to any full time jobs right now. I used to be a technical support representative and an English teacher with TEFL Certificate. So if you guys know anything please send me a reply! (comment). Thank You!! :)
