What is JALT?

JALT stands for The Japan Association for Language Teaching, a professional organisation dedicated to the improvement of language learning and teaching in Japan. It functions as a vehicle for the exchange of ideas and techniques, and a means of keeping abreast of new developments in this rapidly changing field.

Currently JALT has over 30 chapters with nearly 3,000 members located throughout Japan. In addition to local activities, an annual conference is held every year. Members also receive a monthly publication, The Language Teacher (also available online) featuring articles and information relating to language learning and teaching. The JALT Journal is also published annually containing both practical and theoretical articles and research reports. If you are interested in joining JALT, you can find out more on our membership page.

Akita-JALT meets about once a month.  JALT Members and non-members are welcome to attend any of our chapter events.
