Borderlink, Inc. is seeking enthusiastic and dedicated individuals to join us as Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) for the upcoming school year beginning in Spring 2020.
With the increased focus the Japanese education system has placed on English during the run-up to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, the need for high-quality ALTs has risen.
