TESOL Training in Thailand and Japan.
TESOL study options: https://goo.gl/Gd1LV5
(Franchise information is at the bottom)
We have finished organizing a training package for those who wish to do their practical teacher training placement in Bangkok, Thailand. Information on the practical teacher placement can be found here: http://tesoltraining.proboards.com/thread/30/practical-placement-requirements
The TESOL training is:
Cert IV in TESOL: 200,000 Yen
Diploma of TESOL: 300,000 Yen
If you want to study Thai, you can choose an 8 month Thai language package for US$1500 and rent an apartment for 12,000 Baht per month (+ electricity and water, around 2000 baht per month). Let us know if you want this option. This option is a total of AUD$5750 By 6 months you would have completed the Diploma and can swap to a working visa as qualified TESOL trainers are in demand in Thailand. Thailand has grown weary of online TEFL courses which we do not support or advise on in any way.
Accommodation, lunch, transport, all inclusive packages:
The Bangkok package is: 100,000 Japanese Yen
Japan package is: 200,000 Japanese Yen
The packages include:
28 nights accommodation
You will have plenty of time to complete your practical teacher training placement. 28 days gives you time to see Bangkok, do one lesson a day, including one at the orphanage (if you wish), and meet plenty of people. Please get your Blue Card or a government document stating you are safe to work with children before you come.
You will do lessons at The Mercy Centre ( www.merycentre.org ), which is an orphanage for children.
They also have a HIV orphanage.
Some lessons will be at Siam Technology College ( http://siamtechnologyinternational.com ) and Launchpad, a co-working space for young entrepreneurs and startup companies ( http://www.launchpad.co.th ).
You will receive a train pass with enough credit to get to and from the training facility each day.
Lunch or Dinner is provided (Depends on the day, some days finish early, some days start later)
After training days, we will provide dinner at a restaurant around Bangkok. Students will also be invited.
If you want to apply for jobs in Japan, we will write up your resume in Japanese. If in Thailand, we will edit your resume for the Thai market.
With 50% of our net revenue, we will sponsor a student from an ASEAN country to do the Diploma of TESOL. You can learn more about this program at: https://www.patreon.com/tesoltraining/ . The other 50% net revenue will go towards maintenance of business operations.
Each graduate gets a free franchise called `One Gengo`, which means `One Language`. We have a Google Plus, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Page. You can promote yourself for free on all the social media channels.

David Robertson, TESOL Director
Would you like to start your own English School in Japan?
First, let me say what you are doing.
My name is David Robertson, I own www.onegengo.com and www.tesoltraining.asia. I work with many charities and orphanages in Thailand and ASEAN nations to improve the lives of orphans and the economically disadvantaged. All net revenue from this business goes to teaching and training these people and to create new opportunities to lift them out of poverty. Learn more about the Mercy Centre at www.mercycentre.org
Gengo = Language in Japanese, so the meaning is `One Language`
We now offer a One Gengo franchise for free to our Diploma of TESOL graduates. This includes access to our online scheduling, accounting, updating of your website page, and all our social media accounts which we share with you.
If you wish to expand your business and employ more teachers, they can study the Certificate IV in TESOL. The rule is that the head teacher MUST have the Diploma of TESOL. You are not allowed to employ teachers who are unqualified.
Our Certificate IV and Diploma of TESOL are backed by ASQA, the Australian Government's Skills Quality Authority. It is not backed by an association, which usually are of lower quality and do not have anywhere near the kind of quality control system an Australian Government ASQA backed qualification has.
Our head trainer has multiple qualifications in TESOL and has worked in major corporate, college, and private institutions. You are not dealing with an unqualified person, you are dealing with the best.
We will also recruit students constantly and receive 200 inquiries a month. Students will be sent to their closest franchise to study. We will organize open days for students to attend classes before signing up as well.
Our rule is no two franchises can be located within 1 kilometer of each other or be located at the same train station. This way we hope that each franchise owner is able to succeed in their business.
For example: We have a Franchise owner in Shibuya. Someone just graduated and wishes to start their franchise in Shibuya too. We would ask the new franchise owner to start in Ebisu, Roppongi, Shinsen, or some other train station that is one stop or more from Shibuya Station.
Man to Man
The big brand name English schools charge 7000 Yen an hour. We will set the semi-private (Up to two people) classes at 5500 yen per hour too. The difference is that while the big brand name English schools will hire anyone with a suit, all our teachers are qualified TESOL teachers. Who do you think students will go to?
While you are studying, we can advertise and promote your services as a trainee teacher for 2500 yen per hour for a semi-private lesson.
You just need to tell us where you are located and send us your photo and personal contact details and we will start promoting you.
The big brand name English schools will pack 6 to 8 people in one group lesson, charging them around 11,000 Yen per month. We will have a maximum of 4 people per group lesson, and set the price at 11,000 yen per month.
We can also set you up at a co-working space for around 10,000 to 15,000 Yen per month through our partnerships throughout Japan and Asia.
We will continue to recruit new students, right now we have a list of people waiting to be trained by qualified English teachers. The problem is we do not have enough qualified teachers. We will invite all potential students to attend your lessons for one month, so they get a chance to get used to coming to your classes.
Many English schools give only one trial lesson, this is unnatural and really bad business. A student must get used to coming every week, start building their schedule around coming to your lesson, this will NOT happen after one trial lesson. When they come 4 times in one month, it becomes programmed into their monthly routine, like going to work or brushing your teeth, programming is required to make English lessons a routine.
How students pay
Students will pay you in cash. If they want to use credit card, we have the facilities available.
We are not in control of the visa process. Do NOT ask us any visa questions, please ask the Japanese or Thailand embassy or consulate closest to you. We will prepare everything you need to get your self-employed visa if you are already in Japan.
You can come on a one year working holiday visa in some circumstances. If you have finished your Diploma already, it will take you three months to settle down in Japan.
We ask for only a 10% commission on net profit. That is truly amazing. That means after all your costs and salaries are paid, just 10%.
Example: Your school's income is 1,200,000 in one month>
Cost of resources: 20,000
Other small ancillary costs: 20,000
Revenue - Costs = 240,000 Yen net revenue
We will ask for 24,000 Yen (10% of net revenue)
We also now have automatic billing.
We can bill your students each month automatically. This is a much better option as students will make an effort to come to classes regularly. It is free to set up, and we take 10% commission. For franchisees who use this option, we do not take 10% of your net revenue. We pay you and send you all receipts on the first of every month or the next working day if the first day of the month falls on a weekend.
Our Paypal is: https://paypal.me/tesoltraining/
This goes direct to the TESOL Training Paypal app. TESOL Training owns One Gengo. In the contract we write, we will explain that you will receive all receipts for payments made and the amount received minus the 10% commission. This will also be explained to all students in the information pack they will receive.
Other franchises in Japan charge anywhere from 88,000 to 270,000 Yen per month, one franchise charges 50% of gross revenue! They also let anyone be a franchise owner, no qualifications necessary.
We can also handle all your accounting as we have a full time accountant. Paypal and Bitcoin are also accepted, but we take a 5% fee on each.
We will help with resources; lesson plans, training plans, assessment tasks, props, videos, we will build a training and lesson planning community that every franchise can use.
You can join our forum now: http://tesoltraining.proboards.com
We will not help anyone who is not studying or has not completed our Diploma of TESOL to start their own franchise. We want to start a franchise where only highly qualified and competent people work as English teachers at. We want to bring some respect and dignity to English teaching in Japan. Once you get your diploma, we will work with you to build your franchise and brand.
