Job Description

English Language Teacher Position in Osaka, Japan

A Full-time teaching position has opened up to join our team starting late March, early April 2024

We (Osaka Language Academy) believe everyone is different, learn differently, have different needs and understanding these is so important to us as a school.

Being a teacher with us means YOU are the most important thing to us, after all if we do not have teachers, we do not have students.

Our next team member will be part of a small team which we have currently.

We have students of all ages from 3 upwards, through to businessmen and retired, therefore the team member needs to be comfortable around both kids and adults.

Kids are a real growth market for  us due to economic outlook and so experience is preferred and or a genuine intertest in the next generation.

We are a small to medium, foreign owned family run school with 180-200 weekly students learning from our team in a freer working environment, with a real focus on communication between team members and providing a pleasant working atmosphere with weekly team meetings.


From Tuesday to Friday we are open from around lunchtime to 9pm/930pm. We also open on Saturday starting from 9am and finishing at 6pm. Thursdays we offer morning lessons, there are times when teachers may be asked to teach occasionally

Successful applicants will have an interview with the management team first on the phone, then a zoom video call, followed by a face to face interview with the team members. This will allow you to ask questions about the school and what it is like to be part of the team.

Interested?  If so, please apply with a cover letter and resume.
