New media system screenshot

We have a new, modern media system for KobeJET!

The system has already been implemented with our information pages and song content. Now we need help moving the images for lessons. This creates a media library with easily searchable and reusable media elements, including images, audio and other files.

If interested in helping out with this intitiative, contact us using our webform or directly at [email protected]!


Volunteer to help!

All teachers and educators - even retired or returned from living in Japan - are welcome to participate and get involved with KobeJET's online resources and community tools.

You don't need to be an ALT to contribute; if you're interested in supporting language and culture exchange or another resource, contact us.


Find out how to get involved!

We look forward to meeting you!

ABC Phonics
