Looking after children in Japan


One of the three jobs I did in Japan was look after Japanese families children as a English speaking babysitter for Little Hug. With this role, the whole point is to speak completely in English to the child, teach them words and short sentences and raise them for the short time to know what’s right and what’s wrong.
