Generous salary and modern accommodations make for relatively easy living and lots of travel. Kunshan is a growing city with a thriving but close-knit expat community. Banyan Global Learning provides professional development and a network of teachers that focus on quality instruction today and enhanced job prospects whatever your next step may be.
