  • Banana kids esl school utsunomiya

    Hello there!

    I've been looking at teaching English at the Banana Kids School in Utsunomiya (Tochigi) Japan and was wondering if anyone in this forum has worked there, or knows people that have indeed worked there before...?

    My wife lives about 10 minutes by bicycle, so this school would be perfect for me to commute! I have my TESL certificate from Oxford Seminars and my B.A. in English so I am confident I am more than qualified to teach!

    Any help and/or advice on this school, or perhaps any other schools in this prefecture would be GREATLY appreciated!

        Nope. But do you really want to teach at a "school" with that name?

          Hahaha - Well, I guess there have been worse names for schools. I didn't personally name the school, but I saw how close it is to my wife's house so I don't see any reason to not give it a shot and teach there.

            Well, I know few good English kids schools in Tochigi, though it is quite far from your wife's house.

                Go down to your friendly local gaijin bar and find someone from this motley cast of characters and ask.

                      PS if you do take the job can you hi-five jason for being so crazy (who eats ice cream in the winter???) and punch adam in the balls for that creepy look he has about him.
                      Thanks.

                          In Taiwan I used to live near a place called 'Kilin Children English School'
                          At least working for banana english school there would be no end to the punning and jokestering.
                          Sam doesn't look like much of a jokster though....
