(Nov. 1, 2011) -- The UTSA East Asia Institute (EAI) will host an information session on teaching English in Japan from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 3 in the University Center Mesquite Room (2.01.24) on the UTSA Main Campus. The information session is free and open to the public.
Ryan Pauley, Japan Exchange and Teaching program coordinator from the Japanese Consulate in Houston, will introduce the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) program. Two types of positions are available, both of which will be discussed during the information session.
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 for those with a bachelor's degree.
Created in 1987, the JET 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.
For more information about the teaching program, visit the JET program website. For more information about the information session, contact the UTSA East Asia Institute at 210-458-4943 or email@example.com.
