Mitchel Lange

Although he never saw himself working in English education, Mitchel Lange, '15, B.A., Japanese, says he couldn’t deny the abundancy of available work opportunities teaching English in Japan. English education provided not only an opportunity to live and work in Tokyo, a place he had been hoping to move to after graduation, but also an internationally diverse workplace, a huge variety of friendly clients, and lasting friendships with like-minded instructors from international backgrounds. Currently, Lange works as a Coordinator of International Relations through the JET Program. Aiding internationalization efforts in his local area, this position places people in town halls around the country and finds them interpreting, translating, improving sister city relationships, and so on.
