* An email containing details of the agenda and a link to an individualized ballot will be sent to you during the first week of November.


When you receive the email, please follow the instructions on how to complete the absentee ballot. Importantly, we need a majority of JALT members to be present at the OGM for it to be valid. Holding a valid OGM is necessary for us in order to maintain our status as a nonprofit organization (NPO). Fortunately, you can vote by online absentee ballot and be counted present for the meeting, as per the JALT Constitution. Thank you very much for your membership and your support.

Be Native

BeNative, an award-winning e-learning service from SMATOOS Inc., teaches business English to corporate employees throughout East Asia, specifically including China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.

BeNative's business English courses are based on the video interviews and presentations of real businesspeople, making it a 100% natural and authentic language-learning experience. Business executives are filmed regularly, amassing a large database of spoken phrases and vocabulary. All this data is then analyzed and curated using unique text mining techniques in order to find the most commonly used phrases spoken in business.

Interviews include Dr. Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School, Bob Lutz of GM, as well as other execs from IBM, PayPal, Box, 3M, Kimberley-Clark, and hundreds more.

While we are currently focused on English, our next milestones include valuable languages such as Chinese and Japanese. We also have future plans to release BeNative for Kids.
