Don't worry if you don't have any experience with children or teenagers, as you will receive a 1 week TEYL course to complement your CELTA or Trinity TESOL. Children tend to learn in small group classes of up to 6, but the average is usually around 3 students. For our youngest learners, you will have have TA support.

Your adults students could be studying for university, work or pleasure, and often favour 1-2-1 classes, but again, you will never teach a class or more than 6 students.

Positions are available monthly. We recruit for our schools on a needs basis, so although we will take into account location requests, we cannot guarantee them.

Flexibility is the key for all potential teachers. Due to a lengthy recruitment process, we need teachers to apply for positions 3-6 months in advance of when you want to arrive in Japan. We can accommodate you within a 3-month time frame of when your start date will be.
