ESL Jobs in Shenzhen
We are now holding interviews for English teachers to teach 3 to 6 year old students at our top 3 kindergartens in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen. If you are a dynamic teacher, have an interest in an authentic Chinese school setting and can deliver learner centered, engaging lessons then we are interested in speaking with you.
Teachers use the communicative approach to language teaching with various student interactions encouraged in class such as group work, pair work, role plays, project work as well as more traditional teaching methods to add variety to the classes and help create a fun and relaxed learning environment.
All new teachers will receive training on arrival and will be introduced to the school and teaching methods. Teaching materials and resources are provided by the school and are targeted to the age of the students being taught. Teachers are encouraged to adapt and supplement the materials where need be to ensure classes are engaging and interesting.
Classes are held during the day time from Monday to Friday, with a maximum of 20 hours of teaching per week, so you have evenings and weekends off.
