JLTAV membership

Why become a member?

The JLTAV is the Single Language Association supporting teachers of Japanese in Victorian primary, secondary and tertiary institutions. The JLTAV has a long tradition of supporting Japanese language education in Victoria.

Membership of the Association provides access to high quality teacher professional learning and student events that engage students in Japanese studies. In addition, current members of the JLTAV may attend interstate Japanese language teaching association professional learning at member rates through a reciprocal arrangement.

JLTAV membership in 2018 provides access to all JLTAV services and benefits until 31 December 2018.

Being a member will bring benefits to every event and service that we provide. Many of our events have discounted member rates, and some events are exclusive to members only. All events also provide excellent networking opportunities with other teachers of Japanese.
