ESL Jobs in Shanghai

Our language school is now recruiting energetic, motivated and creative English teachers who have strong passion in teaching young learners between 3 to 15 years old in China’s most vibrant city – Shanghai. We help develop and enhance our young learners’ critical thinking and communication skills in a multi-disciplinary environment to become well-rounded thinkers. With strong emphasis on excellence, we have adapted the programs from selected primary schools in the United States. We use a variety of subjects including literature, history, social studies and science to train students to think and effectively communicate their ideas. We encourage our young learns to learn “how to think”, not “what to think”.

Our unique school has Library and Core Course programs which offer guided independent reading in our library of more than 7,000 audio books and regular books as well as literature and writing classes. Our young learners can choose among these books and read by themselves with the help and support of a coach. We aim to provide a life-changing experience to every young learner and try to match or even exceed their dreams and passions. Together, we can nurture the future generation to become the best and the brightest.

With small class sizes of 4 to 8 students, teachers and students have plenty of time to interact with each other and allow learners to discuss and present their projects during the class. Students and teachers have access to a wide range of state of the art teaching technology such as computers, iPads and other multi-media facilities. We also provide excellent, professional pre-job and on the job training to teachers. We welcome ideas and creativity from our foreign teachers to help further develop our curriculum.

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.
