ESL Jobs in Shenzhen

We are now holding interviews for English teachers at our primary, middle and high schools based in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen. If you are a creative 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.

Our public schools are modern with up to date teaching equipment and plenty of teaching materials, games, flashcards and toys to bring your class to life. Various student interactions are encouraged in class such as group work, pair work, 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. 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, so you have evenings and weekends off.
