  1. Hello! First of all, I just wanted to say I really love your posts. I’ve been thinking of teaching in Japan after college and your blog has really inspired me to do it. Do you need to be proficient in Japanese to join the JET Program?

    • I really I appreciate the compliment. I’m glad you’re enjoying the blog. I would recommend looking into applying for the JET Program during your senior year in college. Applications are generally due around December 1st each year. To answer your question, No, you do not need to be proficient in Japanese. There are many people who have zero background in the language who were accepted onto JET. Of course, it’s definitely beneficial to take an entry level class, or a little self study, before your interview in order to show how strong your desire is to teach in Japan. Best of luck!
