Internship Opportunity

Beginning in April 2006, TUJ will offer a one-year internship program for developing the communicative teaching skills of high school English teachers and enhancing their English language proficiency. The program is specifically designed for high school English teachers on a year-long sabbatical and is sponsored by the Graduate College of Education and the Academic Preparation Program (APP) at TUJ. Participants will take one master's course in the College of Education to learn current theory and research on language teaching. For the practical side, the interns will assist in APP classes, receiving mentoring from master teachers who are experts in modern English teaching methods. Other activities include reading key articles in the field, keeping a journal of their experiences and reactions to readings, auditing a class, and having regular conferences about teaching with the APP director, a professor in the Graduate College of Education who will oversee the program. In Japan, only TUJ, as a comprehensive English-medium university, can offer this unique combination of educational theory, teaching practice, and opportunity to develop English proficiency.
