* As this information is subject to change at any time, we advise everyone to contact your local consulate for current travel regulations prior to planning your trip.
What is the course schedule?Expand
There are input sessions every morning from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. when trainees learn classroom management, grammar, language and culture and other practical aspects of the course. Lunch is from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. From 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. trainees prepare their lessons and then teach them to Japanese students. These lessons are followed by immediate feedback from the instructors. You will not be teaching every afternoon, we aim to provide six to eight hours of observed teaching practice over the four-week course. In addition to these hours, there is also time that must be spent preparing materials and completing various assignments.
During the course, you will have the experience of being a learner of an unknown language using the same techniques as you will use to teach English. This is so trainees get to experience the problems that students will face from their perspective. We advise against taking any additional language classes during the course as the program is very intensive and you simply won't have the time!
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We use local Japanese students for the trainees’ teaching practice. Japanese students are very keen and enthusiastic and classes are a very positive experience. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.
Who usually attends the course?Expand
On average we have around five to twelve trainees enrolled on each course, although this number does vary throughout the year. Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.
Is there a dress code?Expand
For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there are no specific dress requirements. We simply ask that you are mindful of your peers and respectful of the fact that you are a visitor in another country.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.
