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 workshops that exhibit practical, student and teacher-friendly approaches to language education that are informed by current research in the field.

Since inception, we have given well-received seminars in Bangladesh since 2005, Vietnam since 2006, Laos since 2007, the Philippines (2008 - 2011), and most recently in Kyrgyzstan from 2009. Future plans include annual seminars to these locations 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.
