Interview with an ALT - Joey


For nearly 25 years BORDERLINK, INC. has been a leader in transforming the way that English is taught in schools across Japan. As we approach a quarter-century of empowering students nationwide, we are more committed than ever to our cause.

Through our work in schools, English programs and events, online teaching and other venues, our team constantly strives to improve our approach as we help turn English from being just another subject into an essential skill that should be available to all children.

To achieve this, we create opportunities every day for people all around the world to realize their dream of coming to Japan as ALTs. Whatever your background, if you grew up speaking English throughout your life, you have the potential to make a difference with us.

Why work for us

With the increased focus the Japanese education system has placed on English in recent years, the need for high-quality Assistant Language Teachers (ALTs) has risen. Cities want the best, and at Borderlink, we'll work to help you be the best. Whether you have prior experience in education or not, we're ready to believe in your possibility, and help you realize your potential as a teacher. Many in our management team began as ALTs or teachers themselves, and over the years accumulated the knowledge and skills to pass on to others. At Borderlink, there's always room for growth, both as individuals and as a team.

To assist that growth, we strive to provide our ALTs with as much support as possible:
● We help you get prepared to make the trip to Japan and provide sponsorship/support for Immigration/Visa matters.
● We'll get you acclimated to Japan and ready to step into the classroom with an extensive orientation for new employees.
● We provide seasonal training sessions hosted by our team of veteran trainers and even specialized 1-on-1 training when required.
● Our ever-expanding database of materials and worksheets is also made available for all our ALTs to use and adapt to best fit their classes.
● We can help with setting up bank account, finding accommodations, and offer 24/7 support for any kind of daily life issue.

Lastly, we believe in offering flexibility to our teachers and appreciate your creative input and new ideas. It is our goal to empower our ALTs to strive to be all they can be, so that their students can feel happy and confident about communicating in English. Let's achieve that goal together.

Thank you for your interest in Borderlink. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
