Find us on Facebook (Joy Children’s Language School Harbin) to connect with existing teachers and find out more about the school.


Joy Children’s Language School, established in 1981, has over 10,000 students across mainland China and Taiwan. At Joy Harbin we have 10 locations in the city with close to 40 foreign teachers and we are expanding all the time. As an English teacher at Joy you will receive first class training and ongoing support from our experienced Western (English and Canadian) management team.


We are seeking several teachers who are native English speakers from the US, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, or South Africa. Teaching experience is preferred but not required as full training will be given to selected candidates. Only NATIVE English speakers should apply.

Starting salary of 6000RMB with no Chinese income tax per month, with two 500RMB salary increases within the first six months.

Three Joy holidays during the year: Spring Festival, Summer Vacation and October Holiday; 42 days of holiday (approximately) with 1/2 of the days paid at the end of the contract.  These holidays provide excellent opportunities for travel.

Opportunities for voluntary paid overtime

Free Chinese lessons

Opportunities exist for high performing teachers to develop into more senior training, coaching and management positions, due to our ongoing success and expansion.


We are a private school. We are not recruiters or an agency and we do not send teachers out to work at public schools or other private schools. Teachers who are hired work exclusively at our Joy Children’s Language School campuses.



The city of Harbin has an extremely low cost of living (especially when compared to Beijing, Shanghai, or southern China) so it is very easy to save a lot of your salary for traveling, sending home, or building savings.  It is easy to live well on half your salary or less, leaving the rest for travel, fun, or savings.


Harbin is the capital city of Heilongjiang Province in Northeast China; it is the heart of historic Manchuria, birthplace of both the Manchu culture and the Mandarin language. The most standard form of Mandarin is spoken in Harbin, so it’s the perfect place to study Chinese and to benefit from our free Chinese lessons


Harbin is a vibrant modern city, mixing traditional Chinese and Russian heritage with contemporary western influences.  The 10th most populated city in China, Harbin is situated on the south bank of the Songhua River.  In summer the city comes alive with outdoor activities: the center of the city features classic Russian architecture and is lined with outdoor restaurants and German-style beer gardens and it’s a short boat ride to the northern bank of the river where you can visit extensive parkland and the Siberian Tiger Reserve.


In the winter Harbin boasts the world famous Harbin Ice and Snow Festival, with colossal ice sculptures throughout the city, skating, ice slides, and sledding. Harbin is just a short train ride from China’s premier ski resort Yabuli. A day trip including a return train ticket, equipment rental, and a half-day skiing or snowboarding pass can cost less than 200RMB ($30USD).


Joy is a private school and classes are held on weekday afternoons and evenings, and weekends. Because of this schedule there is a lot of free time during the week. It’s a great opportunity for those of you who have hobbies, like to experience new things or just enjoy relaxing but have never had the time.


We also provide:

· Airport pick up, local tour and assistance to acclimatize after arrival

· Utilities and internet paid

· Working Z visa

· Resident Permit

· Foreign Experts Certificate

· Free emergency medical and accident insurance



Joy classes all follow a structured curriculum. All materials, books, teaching guides, props, posters, DVDs, tapes, etc. are provided at the schools. There is no need to search the internet for class ideas or materials.

You will receive one-on-one training with a Canadian trainer who has worked at Joy for over 10 years.

You will have the opportunity to observe other teacher’s classes, have assistance preparing your lessons, and practice teaching before you start your first live classes.

Your trainers and the rest of the western management team will provide a high level of feedback, coaching, and ongoing support to enable you to excel.

The atmosphere here is very light-hearted and fun in the classrooms, but we are dedicated to providing the best education for our students. Joy's motto and approach to teaching is: “Learning is Fun”. We play lots of activities and games while teaching English to our young students. Class sizes are small, 15 or fewer students for Pop and 20 or fewer for Young classes.


What Joy needs:

All candidates should be responsible, hard-working, energetic, creative, and fun-loving to teach English to children aged five to 15. Full training is provided but you must have the ability to take the information you’ve learned and apply it in your own classes.


Candidates may apply by emailing a cover letter, resume, college degree, TESOL/TEFL certificate and recent photo to:


Neil Draycott, Director of Foreign Faculty



Please include when you are available and outline any previous teaching experience you have or experience with children, as well as any questions you might have at that time.  Initial contracts are for one year.
