Interac: The Best Teaching English Company in Japan

As Japan’s largest private provider of ALT’s, Interac’s mission is to enrich people’s lives through the sharing of languages and cultures. We bring the world closer together — one student, one school, one community at a time. With our ongoing training and support you’ll soon be thriving in an authentic Japanese school experience.

Our Company and Values

Founded in 1972, Interac is Japan’s largest private provider of professional foreign teachers to the Japanese government through its ALT program. Our mission is:

“Through providing “whole person” educational services that enrich the hearts, minds, and lives of people of all ages, we will achieve a more meaningful society. By promoting a deeper understanding of the world’s languages, cultures, and learning, we will contribute to more harmonious and closely knit relations among all people.”

Interac teachers enrich the lives of hundreds of thousands of Japanese school children every year by delivering interactive and exciting English lessons, sharing their knowledge of English and giving insights into other cultures.
As one of the largest non-government employers of foreign nationals in Japan we employ nearly 3,500 staff in Japan across a network of 13 offices. Around 3,200 of these employees are non-Japanese.

Interac began as a provider of corporate educational services but from the mid-nineties we began providing ALTs and education-related services to Boards of Education across Japan.

In April 2014, Interac became part of the Link and Motivation Group (TSE:2170). The Link and Motivation Group has a range of interests and subsidiaries in the business consultancy, education, recruiting, and hospitality sectors in Japan.
