JeenieTM is a mobile app that connects travelers on demand via video/audio with LIVE linguists who can help them with language and cultural issues (think “Uber” for languages). Linguists can sign up at absolutely no cost and then decide how much, how often and where they would like to work. It all takes place in cashless transactions, worldwide, 24/7, via smartphone. More information is at Jeenie.com.
There are significant opportunities for bilingual Japanese speakers to earn extra income right now, and JET alumni may be good candidates for providing services on the platform. You can work on your own schedule from home (or almost anywhere) and get paid for your valuable language skills. Jeenie would be delighted to welcome JET alumni to their community of Language Jeenies! To apply, a PDF flier is available for download here.
