The Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the improvement of language teaching and learning both within Japan and internationally. JALT has nearly 3,000 members, with 35 chapters across Japan.

Each year JALT holds an annual conference with presenters, speakers, exhibits and events focused around a certain theme. The theme for the 38th conference to be held on October 12-15, 2012 in ACT City, Hamamatsu, is “making a difference.” Participants are invited to join in celebrating and honoring those who have mentored and inspired them through the years.

This year, JALT has given one JET the opportunity to present at this year’s conference as an un-vetted presenter. The deadline for registration is Friday, May 18, 2012.
