General information:

We are a premier ESL recruiting agency in China, WOOK Talent, currently working for the official public schools' ESL teacher recruiting project. It's a project sponsored by the SAFEA ( the foreign expert institution in China who issue the work permit ), to hire foreign ESL teachers for 40+ public schools in Beijing Mentougou district, including several key public schools as Peking 8th senior high school (Top 10 high school in Beijing).

WOOK Tips:
The critical reasons why lots of teachers choose to work in public schools are the low working hours, more extended vacation, standard management, and plentiful employee benefits. But generally, most of the public schools in China only pay 1000 to 1500 USD to foreign ESL teachers. The public schools in this program actually pay double than the other public schools, which makes the offer unique.

Location information:

Beijing city
End of Subway line S1
Border of Shijingshan district and Mentougou district
1 hour to the downtown of Beijing

WOOK Tips:
The public schools' area is not in the downtown of Beijing.

The disadvantage is that the area is less fancy comparing with downtown, in the downtown of Beijing, maybe it's easy to find the stores of LV, Tiffany, in the schools' area, you could still find the stores of H&M, Zara.

The advantages are:
• Less monthly consumption than downtown
• Much better air condition
• The rent is five times less expensive than downtown
• You could save at least 2 hours per day in the crowded public transportation, the accommodation provided by the school is 10 mins by walk to the campus.
• The west side of the campuses are the famous natural parks in Beijing with mountain, lakes, and rivers. The east side of the campuses is the downtown of Beijing where the bars and fancy stores located. Every week, you need to decide if you will go biking, fishing, and picnic in the west, or enjoy the big city life in the east.
Going to "work" in downtown, or going to "play" in downtown, most of the people may choose the second option.

During the video interview with the school, we will show you the panoramic map of the area to give you more information about the area.
