About Us.

Live English was founded in March 2012, on the belief that instructors can teach at anytime, and from anywhere, without the hassle of commuting or sitting in a traditional classroom.

Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: The cost of English programs are artificially high for most Japanese consumers. Live English began with a set of questions: What if anyone could teach or learn English from anywhere, from anytime, and from any device? How could we build on and enhance the core learning experiences found in conventional English schools? Where could we find and recruit the best native English teachers? And, what if we could create a business model that made it radically affordable?

About Us

With a rebellious spirit, shared entrepreneurial passion, and audacious life goals, our founders set out to answer these questions and created a new kind of English school, completely online. With Live English’s virtual lessons, the geographic location of both teachers and students is inconsequential. Live English’s online learning platform continues to provide high-quality English lessons at affordable prices and taught by qualified online teachers around the world everyday, around the clock. We give teachers great tools and lots of flexibility and structure to make their own schedules online, part-time or full-time. Our continuous student growth allows us to always welcome more dynamic teachers to join our growing team.

Today, Live English’s remote-first team collaborates across four continents and 18 timezones, delivers global business and cross-cultural communication skills to Japanese professionals and multinational organizations located in Japan and around the world.
