ESL Jobs in Zhangjiagang

We are now looking for enthusiastic and passionate teachers to teach at our excellent public schools in Zhangjiagang. In today’s economy, a global perspective is almost as important as your educational qualifications. The international experience that we offer is a great way to kick start any career. If you are a fresh graduate or non-experienced English speaker looking for adventure in China, we would like to welcome you on board.

Our school consists of a public kindergarten, elementary, middle school and high school, but teachers will mainly be teaching elementary students. It’s a great opportunity for university graduates to spend a year teaching, learning, and making a difference across China by becoming Educational Ambassadors. Participants experience the challenges and unique rewards of immersion into one of the world’s fastest developing economic and cultural landscapes.

What you can accomplish in a year in China depends on how you spend your time there. Each week, twenty hours are dedicated to teaching, ten hours are spent in the office or in support of student’s activities and ten hours are allotted for collaborative or self-directed pursuits, such as language learning, exploration, and community engagement. As a newcomer to China, the strong support network that we provide will be invaluable in fulfilling your ambitions.

There are nearly endless possibilities for how you could spend a year in China. Above all, be active, be outgoing, because so much is possible if you just step out of your comfort zone. In the end, though, your year is your year, and it’s up to you what you do with it. However, we hope that this year can help kick start your life with an unforgettable year of learning and teaching. We also believe that everyone should spend at least one year abroad in their lives. Fresh graduates and adventurers, what are you waiting for?
