ESL Jobs in China
We are looking for teachers with the professionalism and patience required to teach young learners, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Nanjing, Xiamen, Kunming, Xi’an, Qingdao and 10 other cities across China. Original comprehensive textbooks from Macmillan, one of the world’s Top 3 English Language Teaching (ELT) publishers, are used in small group 4-6 classes taught by foreign teachers, where the cultivation of 5C abilities (Cross-cultural understanding, Communication, Creativity, Critical thinking and Collaboration) and English language skills are integrated.

By reducing class sizes down to a very minimum allows you to better focus on students’ individual learning needs and foster self confidence. Recreating a native English learning environment and conducting classes in a lively and vivid manner by which we facilitate group discussions, situational interactions and role-play, students are naturally motivated to acquire new language skills. Using this approach is much easier for our children of ages 2 to 12 years old to form the habit of naturally thinking and speaking in English.

Teach English in China
Our International Institute of Education founded in 2011, is committed to providing our young learners with FT taught English classes . Currently, we offer quality international education to tens of thousands of students in 12 provinces, 18 cities and 92 directly-operated campuses all across China. As of 2018, we have nearly 600 FTs in our international family. In addition to honors such as “Most Influential Foreign Language Training Organization”, “Most Influential Educational Group” and “2017 Famous Children’s English Education Brand”, we were also granted “TEFL in China” FT training qualifications by the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs in 2018.

In order to inspire a global outlook in students’ minds, through giving them access to internationalized language learning resources here in China, we strive to keep up with the most advanced pedagogical concepts in the world. In early 2017, the “iBilingual International Elite Growth Project”, co-developed with numerous domestic and foreign experts, was launched after an almost year-long preparation. It is a program aimed at enhancing students’ international competitiveness, by cultivating their 5C capabilities (Cross-cultural understanding, Communication, Creativity, Critical thinking and Collaboration). Based on the globally sophisticated Macmillan graded curriculum system, it offers a more diversified course structure that, in addition to the language arts classes and PBL (phenomenon-based learning), also includes family education and social responsibility goals.
