Teaching English in Japan Information Session

September 10, 2019

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures will host a Teaching English in Japan information session from 12:00-12:50 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, 2019 in the Hidalgo Room (HUC 2.214) on UTSA’s main campus.  This information session is free and open to the public.

Alisa Tobin, JET Coordinator from the Japanese Consulate in Houston, will be on campus to introduce the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program.  The program is conducted by the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations with the combined efforts of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and local government organizations.  It was created in 1987 and has gained an excellent reputation since.  

The goal of the JET Program is to promote cultural understanding between Japan and other countries.  To meet this goal, the program enhances foreign language studies in Japan and promotes international exchange.  

The JET program gives native English speakers the opportunity to teach English language and culture in Japan while simultaneously absorbing Japanese culture.  It is recommended that applicants be adaptable and have a strong interest in Japan and Japanese culture. This program is intended for those with a bachelor’s degree.  Two types of positions are available, both of which will be discussed during the information session.

The event is co-sponsored by the Consulate General of Japan in Houston and the UTSA Center for Professional Development.

For more information regarding the event, please contact Mimi Yu at 210.458.8558.
