The Job

English Language Center is now hiring talented, passionate and qualified English teachers to teach in Shenzhen, China. Our teacher-operated organization was established in 1997 with a commitment and dedication to provide a wide variety of courses and services to improve the English teaching standards in the Asia-Pacific region.
We offer a fresh approach to teaching and learning through the use of the latest communicative methods. We have an exceptional emphasis on high academic standards and personal service which allows us to provide the best English language solutions. We have more than 150 dedicated and qualified native English teachers teaching over 150,000 students in Hong Kong, Macao and Shenzhen.

With small class sizes of 4 to 12 students, learners are given more opportunity to interact with the teacher and utilize our face-to-face communicative teaching method. We use the communicative methodology known as ESA (Engage-Study-Activate) which helps children associate what they are about to learn in a practical real-life context, absorb the correct pronunciation of the words, follow the rhythm and stress patterns of the sentences and finally put into practice what they’ve learned, building their confidence and fluency. Our classrooms are all equipped with the latest educational IT facilities to implement the latest communicative methods to make learning enjoyable, memorable and effective at the same time. Most of our course materials are either from the UK or written by our own curriculum team.

Shenzhen – The City
