EFL Teacher

Job description

EF Education First Xi'an has nine centrally located schools and has a reputation as the premier English Language Training company in the city.

Our schools are modern, well equipped, and progressive, and our classes use EF's own syllabus and textbooks. We teach small classes of students, mainly children from ages 3-14, and up to adults. This breadth and variety of students give our teachers great opportunities to develop into well rounded, experienced professionals.

Besides, we offer a continuous teacher development program of training, observations, and workshops. We greatly value our more experienced members of staff and encourage them to become involved in this. We employ around 90 international teachers from over 20 different countries across our nine EF schools in Xi'an, which means that there is always someone on hand to offer some teaching advice and support or to go and grab a bite to eat along.

There are a fantastic support system and network of both foreign and Chinese staff, meaning that our team is very supportive in terms of both professional development and social opportunities. Teachers are never short of help and support at work, or of company and a full social life outside of work.

Xi'an is the second most visited city in China (the first being Beijing), mainly due to its status as the home of the Terracotta Warriors and Capital of China for 13 dynasties. It's also located right in the middle of the country, making it an excellent base from which to make the most of your paid vacation days and days off!

Xi'an is an incredible place to live because it has the modern, cosmopolitan bustle of a major city and the charming, traditional, cultural side of more rural China. Xi'an has the best of both worlds, and this will be an ideal choice if you want somewhere historic, steeped in culture and thoroughly Chinese, without having to forgo easy travel, convenient lifestyle and a home with all the mod cons!

Xi'an is a cheap city in which to live. The cost of living here is also lower in comparison to other Chinese cities, so your salary goes a long way, and building up savings is easy to do.
