We are now holding interviews for English teachers to teach 6 to 15 year old students at our public primary and middle schools in the Chinese city of Wuhan. 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, drama, songs, games and 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. Materials follow the Chinese national school curriculum and focus on developing all four skills - speaking, listening, reading, and writing. 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 18 teaching hours per week, so you have evenings and weekends off. The highest waterfall in China Baishuizhai is located very close to our city, so if you enjoy living in scenic places and are looking for adventures in China, then you will not regret teaching at our school!
Wuhan The City
Located right on the mighty Yangtze River east of Shanghai, Wuhan is a fascinating city with both an ancient history and a thriving present. For centuries, this city has been the center of trade and transportation in central China but is now known as one of the main high-tech, education and financial centers in China, while still having a more traditional feel than some of the coastal cities.
Wuhan is the place to find both history and natural wonders. Hubei Provincial Museum and Yellow Crane Tower are two places to appreciate ancient Chinese history and culture. Wuhan was also the location of one of the private residences of Chairman Mao Zedong which he nicknamed the Home of the White Clouds and Yellow Cranes and also where he gave audience to President Richard Nixon.
