ESL Jobs in Yunnan

Our young learner language school is a foreign owned and Western managed company which has been expanding in Yunnan province and is now hiring English teachers to join the team. We have rapidly grown to four schools across  Yunnan province within the last three years. You will feel right at home in our school but just step outside and you will immerse yourself in the natural beauty south-west China has to offer. Not only will you develop yourself professionally but you will also have a chance to relax being surrounded by the glorious, pollution free scenery of the foothills of the Himalayan region.

We are looking for English teachers who can be role models to our students ranging from 3 to 16, and help them learn in an engaging way. An outgoing personality, high energy, and an open mind is our priority as we provide extensive support and training for our teachers. Our class sizes are kept small to a maximum of 10 students per class each with a Chinese assistant. While having fun leading class and taking in the fresh air under a vibrant sun, your teaching methods will develop before you know it. Lastly, with a low cost of living it will be less stressful to manage living expenses.

Testimonials from Current Teachers

“When I decided to come to China to teach I knew I didn’t want to go to a big city. I wanted somewhere laid back and relaxing, somewhere I didn’t have to constantly worry about pollution or overly large crowds. I get that here in Yunnan. I get to experience a great part of China, surrounded by mountains. Simple living with quick access to a train or plane to whisk you away for a short trip to somewhere new.”
Amber, USA

“The most important reason I decided to come here and work as a teacher is because of a positive review of a friend of mine who had worked here for more than a year by that time. Everything that he said was about here was true. The team are well organized and professional, supports you 24/7, gives all necessary tools to give the best classes possible to the students and most important, gives you an opportunity to develop yourself as a person and build your own career.”
