About our IN COUNTRY TESOL/TEFL course

Many TESOL courses are not accredited and do not provide adequate preparation for teaching English abroad.

That’s why we highly recommend completing our 120-hour in-class TEFL/TESOL in Japan. It will give you the best possible preparation and ensure that your students get the best education.

You’ll even get the opportunity to gain 20 hours of practical teaching experience at a local Japanese school during the course, after which you’ll receive invaluable feedback from your TEFL/TESOL instructor to ensure you head off to your placement as confident and prepared as possible for the life-changing experience ahead of you.

Located in the largest city in the Chubu region of Japan, Nagoya, this is the ideal place to call home for your first month in Japan while you get accustomed to Japanese culture and day-to-day life, and learn how to be the best English teacher your Japanese students need.

The TEFL/TESOL Course is a 4 week course and consists of a 1-week cultural orientation program followed by 3 weeks of TEFL/TESOL theory and practical learning.

We also offer an online TEFL/TESOL course for those that are not able to make our in-class TEFL/TESOL start dates listed in the section below. Instead of completing your TEFL/TESOL training and cultural orientation in Japan, you will complete it over a 4-week period online several months before you head to Japan.
