1.Do I need to speak Japanese?
Japanese language skills are preferable; however, they are not a requirement. We also recommend that all of our teachers actively attempt to communicate with students and teachers.
2.What kind of clothes should I wear at a school?
Private schools tend to request a proper and professional style of clothing. At the interviews,both men and women are asked to wear business clothing. In classes, men wear dress shirts, pants, and neckties.
Women wear business casual clothing equivalent to men’s clothing. Sleeveless shirts,clothing that exposes the navel, and skirts above the knees are strictly prohibited.
Body piercings and tattoos must always be covered.A clean-cut hairstyle is necessary. Usually for men, long hair, beards, and moustaches are not acceptable.
In most schools, you need a pair of indoor shoes (walking shoes, tennis shoes, etc.).
