Interested in getting paid to teach English in Japan? Then our Japan TEFL Internship is perfect for you.

Register your interest

You’ll kick off your Japan adventure by completing our 120-Hour TEFL course (this will be needed for your visa application) and it’s jam-packed full of all the information you need to know to become an awesome TEFL teacher. You’ve then got to complete a 40-hour online orientation (Teaching in Japan course) where you’ll learn all about Japanese culture, history, language, and what it’s like to live and work in Japan.

After this, you’ll be jetting off to “the Land of the Rising Sun” (so called because the Japanese word for Japan is Nihon, which literally means ‘where the sun rises’)!

Next step, let’s get you teaching! For the first 1-2 weeks your school will give you a full orientation, so you’ll know all about the teaching requirements and what’s expected of you. It’s also a fully paid orientation, so you start earning the second you get in the school!

Over the next 12 months, you’ll get hands-on teaching experience in a Japanese classroom, putting your TEFL skills and knowledge into practice. You will be placed in either a public or private language school and could be teaching students of all ages, from infants to adults. You will also have plenty of spare time away from the classroom to explore everything that Japan has to offer, from amazing dishes of sushi and ramen to the famous Mount Fuji and the iconic bullet trains! This wonderful country, a perfect blend of modern innovation and traditional values, will not disappoint!

Trip details

 
Folded Paper Corner
 

Before arrival

Before jetting off to Japan, you’ll complete your TEFL course, which will teach you how to effectively teach English to your Japanese students.

 

Online orientation

To ensure you’re as prepared as you can possibly be, you’ll also complete a 40-hour online orientation – the Teaching in Japan Course. This amazing mini-course will ensure you know all the essentials about Japanese culture, history, and language, as well as explaining what it’s like to live and work in Japan, so you’re ready to hit the ground running!

Lanterns

Day 1

Getting there

You’ll arrive in Japan and either be met by someone from your school, or will be assisted in finding transport to your accommodation for the orientation period.

Women

Day 2 - 7/14

Welcome to Japan!

During your orientation period, as you get to know how your school works, you can continue to work through your internship preparation course in your spare time, if you haven’t already completed it. Once you’ve finished, why not make a start on a Japan travel blog, with the new blog writing skills you’ve learned? That way you’ll be able to document all your adventures in Japan for your friends and family back home!

Garden

Day 7/14 - 365

Your teaching experience

You should be feeling prepared for teaching in Japan after all your training and orientation, so now it’s time to put your TEFL skills to the test!

Your 12-month teaching experience gives you an amazing chance to get rewarding, hands-on teaching experience in a Japanese classroom. Teachers are very well-respected in Japanese culture and learning English is of the utmost importance, so you are likely to find you have very engaged and charming students!

Teaching opportunities are in both public and private language schools (eikaiwas), in both urban and suburban areas across the country. Your monthly living allowance/salary is generous and will enable you to live comfortably during your internship.

You'll be teaching 20 - 30 hours per week and will have 2 days off (although they may not be consecutive), so you’ll have plenty of time to explore.

In your free time there is lots to see. Japan is a beautiful and diverse country, offering a wonderful combination of modern technology, in the form of bullet trains and efficient apartments, as well as perfectly preserved traditional values and cultural practices, like tea ceremonies, sumo wrestling, and onsen baths. There really is so much to experience and enjoy!

Day 365

After teaching

After your teaching experience you’ll have the opportunity to extend your stay for another year - lucky you!

Where will I be teaching?

Fukuoka

Fukuoka

Only 200km from Busan in South Korea, and the recipient of more than its fair share of warm weather and sunshine, Fukuoka is very popular with South Korean and Japanese holidaymakers alike. Known as the oldest city in Japan, it’s also one of the most welcoming, and you’ll find yourself surrounded by smiling faces wherever you go!

Hiroshima

Hiroshima

Known worldwide as the first city to be targeted by a nuclear weapon, Hiroshima has managed to rebuild itself since the devastation of 1945 – it's officially been crowned the ‘City of Peace’ by Japanese Parliament. Peace is definitely the main theme of this amazing city, as it’s also situated on one of the main rivers in Japan which divides the city into sections and definitely creates a very peaceful environment to live in - you’re never far from the sound of water!

Hokkaido

Hokkiado

Prefer natural wilderness and stunning views to the bright lights of the city? Then you should head to Hokkaido! It’s definitely the place to be if you’re looking for adventure and nature as there are 6 national parks, with vast expanses of forests and lakes to hike through and explore. Hokkaido has a much cooler climate that the rest of Japan and it turns into a snowy wonderland in the winter months, so it’s also perfect for those that love to ski!

Nagoya

Nagoya

Often overlooked, due to the popularity of nearby Tokyo and Osaka, Nagoya is definitely a hidden gem! It’s a really friendly place, with amazing shopping facilities and beautiful museums, temples, and castles to explore. Despite its industrial reputation, as it’s the birthplace of Toyota cars, you’ll also find a number of lovely parks to relax in and it’s a great base for exploring the Japanese Alps, so nature is never far away!

Osaka

Osaka

The culinary capital of Japan, Osaka is a great place for foodies. The unofficial motto of Osaka is ‘kuidaore’, which roughly translates as ‘to eat oneself bankrupt’, and you can definitely do that here! There are a wealth of delicious dishes to try, with the most popular ones being 'okonomiyaki' (a layered savoury pancake), 'takoyaki' (fried octopus balls), 'kushikatsu' (fried vegetable and meat skewers) and, of course, 'oshizushi' (pressed sushi/box sushi – which takes serious skill to master!).
