Published: Sat, 12/06/2008 - 9:42am


The Nara JALT chapter is a friendly network of English teachers in the Nara area meeting around once every two months to enjoy professional presentations and share ideas, knowledge and experience related to language teaching. Typically, meetings are held at the Yamato Conference Hall or Takemaru Hall (links given below). If you are in the Nara area and you have a professional interest in language teaching, you are most welcome to join any Nara JALT events. All our events are listed on the JALT Events Calendar on this website. Additionally, the Nara JALT network extends online via the Nara JALT Facebook page, Nara JALT blog, and members mailing list.
