Immediate TEFL Vacancy in Japan

Date posted:2016-03-30 | Writer: Global English School | Email: [email protected]

Global English School is currently accepting applications for a full-time 1-year EFL teaching position that starts in May, 2016. The contract starts on May 1st, however, we need the successful applicant to begin from the middle of April for initial training and orientation. We are looking for someone who is energetic, reliable, pleasant, a team player, passionate about teaching, eager to learn new ways of teaching, self-motivated, open-minded, and really loves teaching children as well as adults.

We teach English conversation to people of all ages, with the majority between the ages of 2 to 12 years old. We teach children using a special program called gPLS systemh (Pacific Language School system), which uses flash cards and listening homework activities. The system emphasizes oral as well as aural communication skills through games and activities that are both fun and educational. We also have a unique course called gWorld Studies,h which is for students from junior high school to senior high school. This course is designed to teach global issues apart from English so as to broaden knowledge, attitude, and skills in becoming global citizens.

We currently have 6 foreign teachers and a helpful group of Japanese staff (all of whom have overseas experience and speak English). Global English School has 3 locations, which are in Matsusaka, Ise and Tsu. These countryside cities in Mie prefecture are about an hour south of Nagoya and about 90 minutes east of Osaka. Each city has a population of between 150,000 to 200,000. The advantages of living in the countryside are clear: instead of the hustle and bustle of large cities, you find sweeping rice fields and breathtaking mountains; instead of the outrageous prices and living conditions of large cities, you find a reasonable and relaxed lifestyle. If you love to teach children and enjoy a mellow lifestyle, this is the place for you.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This unit taught me about the most common mistakes made while using the different types of future tenses, something I must be aware of when teaching students. It also gave good descriptions of the different ways in which to use the different future tenses and had a few examples of ideas for teaching them. The video was good to watch as he explained the future tenses simply and effectively.This unit was a refresher. It helped remind me about the importance of teaching irregular verbs to ESL students. This can be very confusing to an English learner, it is just a rule you will have to remember. In this unit the usage information really painted a clear explanation of how to use each tense. I now have a better understanding of how to clearly teach the importance of these tense.
