Experiencing Guy Healy Japan

This is one of the most rewarding things I have ever had the pleasure of doing. Teaching in schools of all ages gives an aspect into the Japanese Education style and system. Guy gives lectures and helps you set and plan teaching lessons. Nagasaki is also an amazing city for this program to be stationed out of. It has enough for you to enjoy the cultural aspect of Japan while you are working. Down time is enjoyable and it is particularly easy to get around the city. Locals, school faculty and students are all such a joy to be around.

Guy Healy is also extremely invested into your future in job hunting and this is something more you take out of this experience.

Most Rewarding Summer!

This was one of the most rewarding opportunities I have had. I learned so much about teaching English as a foreign language and had opportunities I would otherwise not have. During this program we worked with individuals from as young as three all the way up to sixty-five. We went to schools and also held a community event. Along with teaching we did a lot of learning. We had different classes were we learned from Guy Healy himself. During this opportunity I learned a lot about myself as well. I highly recommend this program.

What would you improve about this program?
I loved this program. The only thing I wish would improve is the communication about flight details. I found out three days before I had to leave.

TEFL program and Guy Healy Japan

I've had the privilege of being apart of with Guy Healy and his programs for the past 3 summers. The opportunities, connections, friendships, and growth I've encountered have brought me back. This past summer I participated in the Asia pacific TEFL program in Nagasaki. I learned what it really meant to teach English as a foreign language along with helpful systems and tools to do it effectively. What I loved most about this program was the multitude of in class time I had with foreign students. Other than lectures, teaching, learning, and team building, we also had a lot of free time to learn about the city, sightsee, and hit up downtown. I also left the program knowing and having connections with various teaching opportunities for future employment in Japan and other countries in Asia. Overall, AMAZING experience!
