new UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY 2x Classroom Teachers for Beginner Japanese Course (filmed)


This is a unique opportunity for two classroom teachers (one must have extensive experience) to develop the curriculum and record a 360 Virtual Reality (VR) Japanese course for absolute beginners.



The classroom production will involve two teachers teaching the student (our multilingual founder, and producer of the “Language Hacking Podcast”, Katie Pascoe) to speak Japanese from absolute beginner level. The teachers and Katie will also interact with a second, “virtual student” in the form of a high-end 360 camera. The 360 video-based VR course that we are creating will be similar to our first project, Dynamic Spanish.


Filming will take place over a two-week period, with the teachers and crew working full time at a location still to be decided (most likely in London, Birmingham or Manchester). We will film approx. 12 hours of Japanese classroom lessons that will give an absolute beginner a foundation in speaking Japanese at an A2/N4 level (CEFR/JLPT).


Teachers will also be involved in a significant amount of pre-production work, which will include curriculum development and classroom design. This will be carried out part-time over a period of four to six weeks prior to filming.



This is a fantastic opportunity for two passionate teachers to join our small, UK-based team. We need two camera-friendly Japanese teachers to help us build an exciting educational project. Teachers must be fluent Japanese speakers, and must be able to communicate with the team in English. Experience with technology is NOT necessary - that’s our area of expertise!


Experience teaching beginners using only Japanese is essential (for one teacher). During the course, only Japanese should be used in the classroom, with text written using rōmaji, and potentially in hiragana as well. No English or other shared language may be used. Japanese only.


We are a small team with big ambitions, and finding the right teachers is our top priority, so we can be flexible with timings and location.


Successful candidates will be instrumental in delivering online tuition to hundreds of students and there will be opportunities for ongoing, post-production work.


We’re also looking for locations (commercial or residential) that capture the Japanese spirit, so please contact us if you have access to relevant locations that can be filmed in the UK.


We want to build an inspiring learning experience for new starters in the language. If you want to help us on our journey, please apply for the role.


Please send a covering letter and CV to Katie Pascoe, Co-Founder & Language Director, at

Please also get in touch if you would like more information about the project and roles.

Interviews will be held via Zoom.


Thank you for your time.
