Teach in Japan as an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT)

Job Description

As Japan’s largest private provider of ALT’s, Interac’s mission is to enrich people’s lives through the sharing of languages and cultures

Our ALTs (Assistant Language Teachers) are a part of elementary, junior high, and high school communities all across Japan.

In your schools, you’ll work with Japanese teachers to facilitate smooth presentation of the school’s assigned English curriculum. This may include preparing worksheets, model pronunciation and reading, demonstration of target language dialogs and similar tasks.

In addition, ALTs are commonly asked to review and comment on students’ homework notebooks and other written work, as well as conducting one-to-one or small group progress assessments.

But the heart of the ALT position is so much more – aside from just being a language instructor you are also a cultural ambassador. Sharing your own background and culture becomes a canvas for using English and gives meaning to what your students are studying.

As an Interac ALT, you are not a member of the schools’ staff but an employee of Interac, and therefore, you work under the guidance of Interac.
