Teaching English in China is an unforgettable experience if you join the right school that can support and inspire you. Teach Around LTD partners with English schools dedicated to creating a fun learning environment for its students. Our partner schools in Beijing's mission has been not only to nurture talented young children in the local community, but to also create a safe and positive working environment for aspiring teachers wanting to experience an exciting new world.
The vast majority of classes have a maximum of eight students. Teachers follow a set curriculum, with a well-defined speed of teaching. Every classroom contains a conventional white board, an interactive white board, a computer and speakers. Foreign teachers work together with local teachers, but the foreign teacher is responsible for leading the class. The Chinese teacher’s responsibility is to observe the students, and compile an observation diary, which can be used to communicate with the parents about the students’ progress, learning strengths and weaknesses, and personal development.
