Okinawa JALT has two main purposes: professional development for language teachers and promoting language education in the community. Our events feature world-renowned scholars as well as local language professionals. We hold workshops to help our members with practical teaching needs. We also provide opportunities for our members to make presentations and publish research. By working together as a dedicated community of professionals, we can share ideas and improve the quality of our teaching.

Workshops and presentations are generally held every other month at local university venues. We also offer "Flex Events" for those wishing to organize their own workshops or conferences. For additional information, please check our WEBSITE or look for us on FACEBOOK.

Sunday, 10 September 2017 - 9:00am - 5:00pm

Okinawa AMICUS International will host an all-day event organized with OkiJALT, the Okinawan JALT chapter. We want to gather participants who usually don’t meet!
This event will be the place to share ideas and good practices when trying to develop language skills in Japan, especially in immersion or bilingual environments. In order to offer a diversity of perspectives, presentations and discussions will be in English and/or Japanese.
Our primary goal is to gather teachers from Japanese and international schools in Okinawa, from preschool to high-school, as well as researchers and language teachers. Participants from outside Okinawa are also welcome.
Teachers and researchers involved in language teaching and learning are encouraged to submit an abstract to present a poster, make a short presentation, or facilitate a workshop.

沖縄アミークスインターナショナルとJALT沖縄が共同開催で実施するイベントについてご案内いたします。 日頃このような機会に参加できない方々のお越しをお待ちしております。
