Some of you might have heard of the term Big Hairy Audacious Goal, or BHAG. Anyone who does something great in their life has a BHAG. My current BHAG is opening an English school in Japan and making it the golden standard of what an English school should be.
Now it's time to make it bigger, hairier, and more audacious. I want my golden standard English school in Japan capable of teaching English to the deaf. Yes, you read that right. One plus is that the grammar of JSL follows the grammar for Japanese. I sent a message to the person who set up my Japanese language course to get his advice on learning JSL alongside Japanese.
So I'll basically be learning to use Japanese in two different ways at the same time. While earning my TEFL certification. And learning about Japanese culture. I wish I could afford to take time off of work to focus on this.
