University Language Teaching Opportunities in Japan!

Check out the flyer for more details.

SDSU_Job Opportunity

Also Kenneth Levin at The American Language Institute is looking for volunteers:

We have a small group coming from Gunma University in Japan starting February 17. There are only about 15 students, staying for a month. So we just need a few people who can help out.
I think the morning classes run Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 1 pm, and afternoon classes from 2 to 4 o’clock. We can use volunteers in both sessions. There is also a social mixer and a field trip involved for those that want to participate.
Students in the SDSU Linguistics department may be able to earn units for their efforts. Everyone else can always ask for a letter of recommendation, get their face shown at ALI, enjoy warm fuzzies, and so on.

If this sounds like something you are interested in, please email him at for more details!
