I know it seems like a very far away place. For people in North America and Europe and the Middle East, Japan is seemingly on the “edge of the world”. But the truth is, Japan is not as far away as you might imagine. A day of travel and waiting around in airports, and a lot of coffee will find you in Tokyo or Osaka pretty soon.
But once you get here, you need to figure out what you are going to do. You need to stay somewhere. You need to figure out how you can get a job, and how to keep that job, and how to navigate all the things you need to know. It can seem rather overwhelming, but you can do it. If you take it all in small pieces, in bite-size pieces, you are going to be all right. You are going to be okay.
When you decide to make the step to get your TEFL Training with us and iTTi Japan, you’ve made an important first step. Spend the month with us in Osaka this year. Get to know the culture a little, get out and stretch your legs as you walk around Osaka castle, try the food, get away on the days off to Kyoto and explore that city.
But during our session times, when you are learning all about how to be a good teacher, do your best to pay attention. Make notes, ask questions, and get involved in the group discussions. We have a lot of ground to cover in such a short time. But when you are through the coursework we will also spend critical time looking at job placement for you as well. And this is part of our “package” deal for our students.
While a lot of TEFL/TESOL/ESL/EFL courses on-line and elsewhere promise the moon and offer very little, we are deeply committed to helping you realize the job placement and getting your foot in the door here in Japan, or is that rice-paper sliding door?
At any rate, we are very serious about getting you in the job you need, and well prepared for how to design your Japan-friendly resume, how to ace the interview, and how to go about getting the job you need. I hope you will take it from us. We hire teachers and have been involved in the interview processes for schools and government here in Japan for over twenty years. We can help you and we will help you.
Our first course is in Osaka of July 2018. Contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get the registration process started.
Looking forward to seeing you here!
