ESL Jobs in Shanghai

Following the success of our 6 language schools in Hong Kong, we are opening a new center in Shanghai in late 2015. We are holding interviews now for motivated, energetic young learner teachers who are looking to take their next step in a modern education environment. Our students are aged from 4 to 16 years old and we limit our class size to a maximum of 8 students per class.
We are in proud collaboration with Oxford University Press, who provide our entire curriculum including our course materials, books and teaching aids. We make use of a communicative approach to language teaching, with the goal of developing students’ communication skills through a variety of interactions and activities while ensuring they enjoy the learning process.

Teachers will have a teaching assistant in the class with them to help with running the classes. All classrooms are fitted with modern interactive white boards with various digital materials for teachers to use as they see fit. You will receive 1 week of paid training at the start of the contract as well as on-going support and professional development sessions throughout your contract, from our Director of Studies.

Teach English in Shanghai

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago, it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of Shanghai’s colonial past featuring grand European architecture.

For those who like to shop, party and eat, Shanghai has all you could possibly want and more. But despite its cosmopolitan reputation, pockets of quaint tradition remain alive and well, dotted throughout the city. Explore countless old markets, back streets crammed with local eateries and discover incense filled temples still central to the locals’ daily life.
