What is our team like?
If you are interested in working at Linguage, you must be interested in knowing about the team members you will work with.
Our Foreign English Instructors
Our instructors come from all over the world. Most are from English-speaking countries, such as the UK, the USA, Canada and Australia but we also have instructors from many European countries and South America. We believe that having instructors who share our students’ experience of learning English as a 2nd language gives the students a more complete experience. Ability to speak Japanese is a plus, but is not necessary, because the foreign instructors may only use English at work.
Depending on the school locations, there are 4 to over 15 foreign instructors working under the supervision of a senior instructor and the school manager.
Our Japanese English Instructors
In addition to the foreign instructors we also have a small number of Japanese English instructors. They are mostly in charge of beginner-level students. They also play the role of interpreter for the foreign instructors and facilitate smooth communication between foreign instructors and students and within the Linguage team.
Our school staff
Our school staff are Japanese staff members who speak at least daily life conversation level English. They conduct information sessions for prospective students, provide counseling and advice to current students, as well as take care of the day-to-day business of running the school (manage instructors’ and students’ schedules, keep track of tuition payments, etc.) . Some of our Japanese English Instructors also work as school staff.
Our school Managers
There is one school manager assigned to each school. They manage team members, and run schools. Currently, all school managers are Japanese.
Shinjuku Honkou School is also the headquarter of all schools, giving instructions to school managers of each school. Instructions are accordingly passed down from school managers to staff or senior instructors.
