He graduated from University of Washington and he is now working at one of the Japanese game companies as a translator/interpreter. You will work with him and you will study English grammar, reading, pronunciation for developing your original materials and lessons for your future Japanese students in the English teaching team at SEKAEL. In the team, there is a female native speaker who is from Florida, US. besides the Japanese leader. Your experience and knowledge will be an asset to us. Our goal is not only to teach English to Japanese people, but also to make Japanese people like the Philippines more, and to deliver supplies to poor children in the Philippines. Now, we have a big project to deliver some Japanese supplies to them, and your job is to receive supplies from us in Japan and deliver them to kindergartens, elementary schools or junior high schools in the Philippines. If you empathize with this message, why don’t you work together at SEKAEL!
■Q: Why did we start this project?
In the news, we learned that many Filipinos were losing their jobs because of COVID-19, and we thought about what we could do. As a result, by asking Filipinos to work and paying their salaries, we thought that we could help those who lost their jobs in the Philippines, albeit in a small group, so we started this project.
We are confident that this project will, first, protect the livelihoods of Filipinos who will join our team in the future, and in the future, provide supplies to the poor children in the Philippines and connect the Philippines and Japan.
■Q: What will you do in the team?
1. You will work with the Japanese trainer in order to develop the English materials and make your original lesson for Japanese students online.
2. We will create a one-minute video in which you answer questions in English, and make a script for that video and questions to check if the Japanese students have understood the video.
3. You will introduce new vocabulary and phrases to be delivered to Twitter and Facebook.
4. You will teach not only private lessons but also group lessons.
5. You will receive supplies from us in Japan and distribute them to children in the Philippines. When COVID-19 settles down, we in Japan will also go to the Philippines to help!
