EFL Job Survey

EFL Job Survey

Dear colleagues,

My name is Douglas Meyer, and I am organizing a nation-wide survey on our EFL profession. I am interested in the various working conditions, opinions and thoughts on language education in Japan, and have made an easy-to-complete (5-6 minute) anonymous online survey to gather your input. Please forward this message to friends if you have already completed the survey.

In order for this survey to be successful, we need responses from a few hundred language teachers from across Japan. Can you do your part by helping to spread this survey (and the job survey links) to 3 or 4 of your teaching colleagues?

The only way we can make any positive changes in our profession will be to add hundreds of voices to this call. The more responses we can get, the harder it will be for educational institutions to ignore the results of this national survey.

Here are the links:
For elementary, junior, and high school teachers

For college and university teachers

Please note that this is a personal research project, and not connected to JALT in any way. I am hoping to use this data in a report on our EFL profession in Japan. Should a large number of teachers reply, the Ministry of Education may be interested in the results. If you are also interested in the results, please complete the survey (if you haven't already) and pass it on to your teaching colleagues. Thank you for your time!

Sincerely yours,
Douglas Meyer
National EFL Job Survey Organizer
Osaka, Japan.
