The position involves preparing and providing oral English classes to our international education department students at a range of levels.

Our university is located in Shangqiu City, a national historic and cultural city and “Capital of Chinese Business”, with the beautiful National Forest Park on the old course of the Yellow River in the north, and an ancient Guide City and Yingtian Academy in the south.

Teachers will be teaching a maximum of 24 teaching hours per week, provided with plenty of personal time to explore this historical & cultural region of China.
