ESL Jobs in Minhou
We are now recruiting energetic, passionate young learner English language teachers for our school in Minhou, China. Our high academic standards and enjoyable learning environment have established us as the number one language school in Fuzhou, Shenzhen, Changle, Xiamen and Minhou. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to work in an established school with exceptional resources and a supportive teaching team.
Our school was started in 2003 with the aim of doing ESL differently than other schools in China. The quality of the education we provide matters. We aim to provide students with creative, engaging, and educational lessons that will allow them to develop their language skills in a safe and supportive environment. Due to continued success we now have a total of 10 schools (and 5 more opening in this summer) all with modern facilities and cutting edge teaching resources.
We offer courses to students of all ages, with the majority being young learners from 3 to 16 years old. Our commitment to education extends into high-level of support we provide for our teachers and staff. From a supportive community to welcome new teachers, to comprehensive initial training and on-going professional development, we are here to make sure that our teachers have the resources, training, and support to succeed in the classroom.
We have small class sizes so you can build a rapport with your students, every class has a Teaching Assistant to help you and the students and we provide everything you need to create fun and interactive lessons.
We also believe in having a work life balance. On average our teachers are in the classroom for around 16 hours each week. Which leaves you with lots of time for exploring the city and surrounding countryside, learning Chinese, playing sports, going to the gym and immersing yourself in Chinese culture.
“My time at the school is one I will always remember very fondly. Taking the plunge and moving far from home is a challenge to say the least. Particularly for a first-time ESL Teacher this support is absolutely indispensable and, even for those who have taught before or have previously lived in China, not enough can be said about the help, advice and useful services the school offers. This support allows you to focus on teaching well.” – Matt
Teach English in Minhou
Minhou is a small, peaceful city just outside of Fuzhou in warm, south-eastern China. This small, peaceful city by the Min river. With a population of under 300,000 this mountainous county has incredible views. Minhou is surrounded by mountains and offers a variety of beautiful parks meaning that it is easy to get out of the city and into nature. You’re also just a short trip away from the big city of Fuzhou. Despite being a smaller city, Minhou has a lot to offer. There are even some western flavours (yes, there’s a Starbucks here) but it’s overwhelmingly an authentic Chinese experience!
Min Cuisine is one of the eight major cuisines of China. It has its own unique style that has evolved over a long time. Expect lots of fresh seafood and vegetables, some spicy meats and lots of deliciousness.
