About this title:

Synopsis: There is a foreigner called an ALT in every Japanese elementary, junior high, and high school. You may even have been taught by one. ALT’s are popular figures at schools, but they are also mysterious. Former ALT, American Chad Frisk, sheds some light (?) on these enigmas. Chad has studied Japanese since high school, and can tell a story that other ALTs can’t (perhaps). The best way to get to know a foreigner is to actually talk to one, but for those who can’t force themselves to do so, there is this book. By the time you’re finished with it, maybe you’ll get the courage to strike up a conversation.
