【Position Details】
Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) work alongside Japanese teachers to make English lessons fun and engaging for the students. Practicing grammar and vocabulary, participating in games and activities to reinforce the lesson’s goals and communicating with students both inside and outside of the classroom are all part of a day’s work for ALTs.

*If you have prior teaching experience in Japan (especially at public ES and/or JHS), your application will get special consideration.

⚫ Contract period: April 2024 to March 2025
⚫ Contract type: Full-Time
⚫ Level: Kindergarten, elementary and junior high school

⚫ Salary range: Between 225,000 to 260,000 yen / month
