ETJ (English Teachers in Japan) is a network of teachers devoted to promoting teacher training and co-operation through grassroots workshops thoughout Japan. It encourages the exchange of information and teaching ideas, provides opportunities for training and professional development, and brings teachers together into a community.
ETJ was originally set up by David Paul in 1999 to provide a general association for the busy classroom teacher and to reach teachers who needed the most support. On a national level, it is still administered by David Paul, though each ETJ group or project manages itself.
The ETJ Hiroshima Regional Group is a non-commercial group run independently by volunteers to promote English teacher development and co-operation in the Hiroshima region.
