September 13, 2019

Message from Sally in China

“I run a small language centre in Kunming, southwest China. Our English teacher from the UK is leaving after four years and we are seeking someone to take over her role.

This is an opportunity to spend between six months and one year in Kunming, Southwest China, studying Chinese in the mornings and teaching English in the afternoons.

The teaching involves small groups of primary school age children learning English after school in a small language school run by a British and Chinese team.  You will be a key member of our team, developing the curriculum and approaches to assessment as well as teaching groups of around six children. There are also opportunities to teach young people and adults in very small groups and one to one. Our working week is five days a week, Sunday to Thursday.

Good remuneration and excellent working conditions.

You will have an ELT/ESOL teaching qualification and some experience of teaching English and, ideally, of teaching young learners.
