Teachers Helping Teachers (THT)

We’re not just an organization, we’re an idea

About THT

Teachers Helping Teachers (THT) is a grassroots organization founded by members of the Himeji City Chapter of JALT (the Japanese Association for Language Teachers) in 2004. THT is dedicated to the aid and assistance of fellow educators and students in and around Asia. We fulfill this mission by providing teacher-training conferences, seminars, and workshops that exhibit practical, student, and teacher-friendly approaches to language education that are informed by current research in the field.

Since its inception, THT has given well-received programs annually in Bangladesh, Vietnam, Laos, the Philippines (currently on hiatus), and most recently in Kyrgyzstan. Future plans include repeat visits to all of these countries and expansion to other areas where we are needed.

We have had presenters from Europe, North America, Australia, South America and Asia whose native languages have been English, German, Spanish and Japanese. Anyone interested in volunteering to present at our upcoming seminars is invited to submit proposals (usually 3 or more) on topics of interest to teachers in the host countries.

Delegates are expected to possess post-graduate degrees and have experience in giving presentations at academic conferences. Elementary, Junior High, High School, and University level teachers are encouraged to apply.
