ESL Jobs in Shanghai

Our school is now looking for enthusiastic, positive and qualified English teachers who have a genuine desire to teach young learners aged 3 to 12 years old. Established in 1997, our school has more than 40 campuses across Taiwan and China. We aim to provide the best quality English education that we can offer. We offer a relaxing and accommodating work environment that also stimulates creativity and personal growth. As we are about to expand the number of schools in China, we are looking for reliable and hardworking individuals to be a part of our team. If you have the qualifications and are looking for the right challenge, we would like to speak with you.

Our young learners have the opportunity to learn in modern, safe, all-English environment. We also provide a series of well-researched and well-structured curriculum which follows the North American standards. We provide education which has a balanced distribution on speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. We encourage our foreign teachers to create a fun and educational learning environment. With a maximum class size of 12 students, the foreign teachers and the young learners have more opportunity to interact and be acquainted with one another. A local teaching assistant will be available in every classroom to assist with the administrative side of running a class such as communicating with parents. We put great emphasis on quality education and we achieve that through our professional teachers’ training, on-going management support and promotional opportunities given to all the teachers.

The Curriculum

We offer two different programs for students: “Early Starter Programs” are for young learners aged 3 to 6 years old. It uses a series of English course materials developed by our very own research and development department. The textbooks cover areas such as phonics, vocabularies and conversation. A large part of the program is music where we developed over 60 songs for young learners. The lyrics of the songs are all associated with the content of our conversation books. The other program is the “Elementary Program” which is for older students between 7 to 15 years old. The course materials consist of a series of English textbooks developed by McGraw Hill, an American publishing company. The subjects learned are Spelling, Language Arts, Phonics, Dolch Sight Words, Reading and Writing.

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.
