ALTs on Stage

A group of foreign residents, including about 30 participants on the JET Program, recently put on a fund-raising play in Fukui City. "The Tale of Wali Dachi" is an original piece written by a CIR (Coordinator for International Relations) from Singapore and an American ALT (Assistant Language Teacher), and is loosely based on an Indian fairytale. It was presented in a mix of about 80% English and 20% Japanese. The play was organized and promoted through the Fukui International Association. All proceeds went via an organization for Indonesian exchange students to support the relief efforts following last December's Sumatra Tsunami.
