What is CUE?
CUE is a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT).Founded in 1993, the CUE SIG has approximately 400 members across Japan. Each year, CUE sponsors featured speakers at various conferences and events such as the JALT International Conference and holds or co-sponsors events such as the CUE Conference and PanSIG.
In addition, CUE publishes the refereed journal OnCUE Journal twice annually, plus at least one special issue per year.
JALT members in good standing are invited to join the CUE SIG. SIG membership is 2,000 yen per year. JALT members can join the CUE SIG via this JALT page or by postal furikomi (electronic transfer) using the slip found at the back of each issue of The Language Teacher (TLT). JALT members can also join the SIG at any conference in which CUE participates, such as the JALT International Conference. Joining SIGs when joining or renewing JALT membership is recommended.
CUE SIG members receive the OnCUE Journal twice a year, in addition to at least one special issue and/or proceedings journals which result from conferences. SIG members also enjoy a discount rate when attending CUE-sponsored conferences.
