  • Description
    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.

    • Positions: starting year-round (Most in April)

    • Working Hours: Weekdays between 8:00am and 5:00pm.

    • Commuting expenses reimbursed

    • Teaching Hours: Typically three to five 45-minute classes per day

    • Obon (summer), New Year’s holidays, national holidays, and paid leave

    • Career Navigation Program: Professional and skills development program available to our instructors


    “ALT” is a title coined by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) to describe native-level speakers of English working in Japanese classrooms. 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.
