Four Seasons Language School and Cultural Center

Four Seasons Staff members


Over 30 years of experience, learning something new everyday.

Four Seasons Language School and Cultural Center was founded in 1980 on the belief that great instructors can mold great speakers out of learners. To this end, we hire trainers who are flexible, experienced, and interesting.



Are you a professional language instructor, a teacher looking for a chance to travel and experience another culture?  We're looking for you.  
Unlike most other language schools in Japan, Four Seasons is interested in hiring professional instructors, not just good-looking young native speakers. We want dedicated people who are committed to education and professional standards. We offer a challenging and supportive work environment and also do everything we can to assist with "culture shock" and your adjustment to life in Japan.

Our instructors don't always work only in the school. They regularly travel to different companies or even to private homes, as well as teaching in our own classrooms. They teach a variety of classes; businessmen and housewives, children and adults, and at all language levels, from beginner to advanced.

The students study foreign languages for a variety of reasons as well. Some need it for business and some want it for travel.  Others plan to live, or have lived, overseas, and some need specialized vocabularies. For example, we once customized a class for a receptionist at a dental clinic who had seen an increase in foreign patients and who needed to learn how to say, "We need to drill now, it won't hurt a bit."

Our work varies regularly. Four Seasons is always looking for local residents with specialized language skills (Chinese, Indonesian, Vietnamese and Thai being some of the current popular choices; or for qualified teachers able to substitute for our regular staff on short notice or to cover an extra class for a few months. We can also provide regular work for translators, interpreters and copywriters in many fields. If you'll register with us, we'll see what work we can offer to supplement your regular job, or perhaps, just to "get you out of the house" for a while.
