We are always looking for people to work with and help improve the overall experience for teachers and students.
We are always happy to see good teachers add their profile to our website, and if the teacher agrees, we often promote teacher profiles on our social media sites.Join OrangutanJapan today and start teaching.
We're looking for small bite sized language video lessons, about 2 - 3 minutes per lesson, which well help students learn a lanaguage. To produce these lessons we need creative and capable language teachers (with video recording equipment) to help us. Ideally, each teacher will produce a series of these mini-lessons which we'll upload to our website or YouTube Channel. The videos should be clear and aimed at beginner / intermediate level students. If they are not conducted in Japanese, they should be kept as simple as possible, introducing a few key grammar points or phrases. Other than that, we'd like to keep our guidance to a minimum. We want your creativity and individuality to come through. The video can feature just yourself or it can focus around a conversation between a couple of people. It's up to you. What we ask, is that if you're interested, you send us an email with a short introduction of yourself on the video editing equipment you'll be using. From this we can see if the equipment is good enough for our requirements (most smart phones have video cameras good enough). If we're happy with that, we'll ask you to send a video lesson (around 2 - 3 mins in length). We'll pay you 1000 yen for this whether we use it or not. Based on that video, we'll discuss you producing further videos for us, how we'd like you to change your style, or simply let you know we don't need any more videos from you. Being honest, in most cases, it's a case of us suggesting changes to your video but asking for a further batch (one single video isn't too much use for us).
And we pay. We'll pay you via PayPal, so you'll need a PayPal account. We'll pay you 5 US Dollars for the first video regardless of whether we use it or not, and 5$ for every subsequent bite-sized video (which includes a written transcript of the lesson). The videos will go on the OrangutanJapan.com YouTube account (although we'll technically own the video, so we reserve the right to not upload it, or upload it elsewhere, or do whatever we wish with it) and will be viewable to the internet public. This means anybody will be able to search YouTube for the video. So please send us your initial intro videos to orangutanenglish[atsign goes here]yahoo.com
We are always interested in exploring partnership opportunities with other organisations in Japan and overseas. If you have any ideas, please get it contact.
