At Jaba, our instructor team is comprised of both native Japanese and non-native Japanese men and women who have all had some experience in either formally studying Japanese, or are working towards a post-secondary Japanese related degree. We select instructors based on several criteria, including teaching ability, professionalism, and their ability to inject their own personality and creativity into lessons.In each lesson, the instructor is there to guide our clients through understanding the lesson target language and provide support during practice activities. All of our instructors are trained to keep teacher talk time (TTT) low, but they are also there to challenge and motivate our clients to use what they have learned both in the lesson and their daily lives.
