Webster: October 2002

Author: Shaney Crawford, Issue: October 2002, Topic: Tsukuba Web Guides

This is a clever new site that links students with teachers in Japan. If you are a teacher, you can register so students can find you. Include as much or as little information as you like. Your information will then appear on the Japanese site hosted at www.senseisagasu.com, translated into Japanese for potential students. Teachers don't have to pay anything to register, but students have to pay a nominal fee to receive your contact information. Have a look at the site. It's a great idea and makes excellent use of the internet.

The new Alien Times site is still a work-in-progress, but you can get good information from the site while we work on it. In particular, have a look at the topics page. If you have any suggestions of useful links for us to add, contact us. We are working on a project to get all the back issues of Alien Times (1987-2002!) online. If you have access to a computer and can work with MS Word files, please help! Even if you can only help with one issue, it will make a big difference. You don't need to know anything about HTML, as I can teach you the basics. Contact us if you are interested in helping.

I wouldn't say this is the best city website I've ever seen, but it will do. Click on the "English" link to get to the English newsletters and other information. The newsletters are not presented very well because you have to scroll through every page to see what is on each one, but the information is there, so I guess we should be happy about that at least. The events listings are quite good.
