Since April 2009, Tokyo International School Group (TISG) has been running an English language program at Musashino Junior and Senior High School in Kita-ku Tokyo. Starting with one teacher in the first year, we now have two dedicated and passionate English teachers who work together to run this unique program.
The Musashino program is a hands-on approach to building English communicative ability. The idea is to foster a set of ideal learner traits while exploring themes that are interesting and relevant. Each student is supplied with an iPad which they use in class for note-taking, research, and presentations. As we teach each class 6 periods per week we are able to see solid growth in both language ability and ideal learner trait development.
- We are looking for a confident, dedicated, and passionate teacher.
- Candidates must have a degree in education and two years of experience (ideally working with junior or senior high school students in Japan).
