ESL Jobs in Shenzhen

We are now holding interviews for English teachers at our primary, middle and high schools based in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen. If you are a creative teacher, have an interest in an authentic Chinese school setting and can deliver learner centered, engaging lessons then we are interested in speaking with you.

Our public schools are modern with up to date teaching equipment and plenty of teaching materials, games, flashcards and toys to bring your class to life. Various student interactions are encouraged in class such as group work, pair work, project work as well as more traditional teaching methods to add variety to the classes and help create a fun and relaxed learning environment.

All new teachers will receive training on arrival and will be introduced to the school and teaching methods. Materials follow the Chinese national school curriculum and focus on developing all four skills – speaking, listening, reading and writing. Teachers are encouraged to adapt and supplement the materials where need be to ensure classes are engaging and interesting.

Classes are held during the day time from Monday to Friday, so you have evenings and weekends off.

Shenzhen is located in the southern portion of the Guangdong Province, on the eastern shore of the Pearl River Delta. Neighboring the Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong (located just south of Shenzhen), Shenzhen's location gives it a geographical advantage for economic development. In 1980, the first Special Economic Zone of China was built in Shenzhen. From then on, Shenzhen become a highlighted city of China, one known for its rapid economic growth.

Shenzhen is considered as one of the richest cities in the country which offers foreigners a great insight into contemporary China. From a small fishing village 30 years ago, Shenzhen has turned into a city filled with dynamic energy and on its way to becoming a world-class metropolis. Shenzhen is also known for its famous architecture, bars, restaurants, art scenes and shopping areas.

Testimonials from Teachers

“They not only helped me get to China and make sure everything was in order, but they also helped me to find resources that I never would have found myself. The schedule is great, the school is nice and of course the students are so sweet. Overall I have been very happy and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to teach abroad!”

“They have helped with all necessary documents as well as everything we struggle with as foreigners, including assistance with acquiring my residence permit, setting up my phone contract and acquiring the perfect place to rent. They have helped us at every step of the way.”
