about MY’s teaching journal

Welcome to MY English School’s teaching web journal!

We have a blog on MY’s main website that highlights events and some of what we do at MY. That blog gives a great glimpse of our schools. This journal is from the perspective of MY’s teachers, about how we teach, why we teach, what we teach, and where we teach. It gives us the space to talk about our teaching, share about ourselves, learn from each other, and become better teachers.

MY English School was founded in 2001 in Higashine, Yamagata, Japan, to provide quality English language education to companies, organizations, and individuals. Owned and operated by a licensed, experienced teacher, MY has grown to include Yamagata’s only immersion bilingual kindergarten, in addition to language schools across Yamagata prefecture and in Hyogo.

MY’s teachers have hailed from nearly a dozen different countries and come with a variety of teaching and other professional experiences.  This journal is a space where we share our voices.

  1. Good evening.

    This is Rodrigo Trujillo at your service, and I would like to inquire about the opportunities and position that are offered at the website Gaijin Jobs, but I noticed that the startings dates are on a period of March – April, I’ll be in Japan from 15th of May, for what I would like to know if there will be any other opportunity on a period of May – June, or afterwards on the current year.

    Also, I have to say that I’m not a English native speaker, I am actually Latin American, Mexican to be precise, I honestly hope that this is a situation that not reduces nor invalidate any chance to applying.

    To whichever opportunity or suggestion that may be offered I’ll appreciate the attention.

    Thank you for your time, have a nice day. 

    1. Thanks for the interest, Rodrigo! We can sometimes be flexible with start dates. The academic year in Japan starts in April, so that’s when our classes and new teaching schedules begin. The best thing to do is to apply, and then we can discuss the details of the start date during an interview. Please apply!

  2. Hello.

    My name is Martin and I actually sent in an application for
    your job posting through gaijinpot.com. I wanted to follow up on
    my application because I’m truly interested in having the chance
    to learn more and hopefully work with your company.

    If there’s anything in my application that you had questions about,
    please let me know and I’d be more than willing to answer them
    and provide more clarity. I really hope to hear from you soon. Have
    a great rest of the week.

    All the best,
    Martin Robles
