We are now holding interviews for English teachers at our public kindergartens, primary, and middle schools based in Hangzhou. If you are a dynamic teacher, have an interest in an authentic Chinese public school setting and can deliver learner centered, engaging lessons then we are interested in speaking with you.
Our schools are modern with up to date teaching materials and equipment including projectors and computers. Various student interactions are encouraged in class such as group work, pair work, role plays, 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. Teaching materials and resources are provided by the school and are targeted to the age of the students being taught. 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 include 10 to 20 students for Kindergarten and 30 to 40 students for primary and middle school are held during the day time from Monday to Friday, with up to 20 hours of teaching per week, so you have evenings and weekends off.
There is a famous saying in China: 上有天堂 下有苏杭, "Above, there is heaven. Below there is Hangzhou and Suzhou." Regarded as one of the two paradises on earth by the Chinese people, Hangzhou offers an ideal destination for anyone seeking to live and teach in China.
Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang province and is located not far south of Shanghai. The city is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in China with numerous historic relics and natural beauty. Most famous for its picturesque West Lake, elected as a National Key Scenic location due to its historical and cultural significance and many temples, pagodas, ponds and plants.
The city is one of the most livable in China with a natural balance of local Chinese culture and Western amenities providing a dynamic atmosphere of live music, cafes and bars, a variety of events and an eclectic mixture of people from all over the world. Mix a buzzing city with a pleasant year round climate and low cost of living and you see why Hangzhou has earned the reputation it has.
