Teaching English in another country is a fantastic way to get under the skin of a country. You get to learn what makes the people tick, make sense of the culture and have time to see all the sights and attractions that you could never cover in a holiday. It’s not a holiday, of course! Wherever you work you will find the job to be full on, at times stressful and demanding. Working at Shane English School Japan is certainly full on but also has lots of variety, you will develop as a teacher, the students are lovely and it is very rewarding.

Here are the thoughts of one of our teachers,  Mark Williams, who started in July:

"Work is excellent. I love my schools and the students. I especially enjoy the lift off age group and the adults. My two very young classes are also fun. I'm learning a lot and progressing. I have been using my breaks between lessons to learn some Japanese".

Mark, who is a certified "Japanophile" also writes poems and short stories about his travels in Japan. He has also published a number of books. Mark  has a lovely website which you can view by clicking here
