Daqing is a thriving modern city which has benefited from a recent boom, due to discovery of the largest oil reserves in China. The city is extremely clean and isn’t crowded like other major cities, as the city’s infrastructure has developed more quickly than the population has expanded (a very rare thing in China).

The city of Daqing 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.

Daqing is a short bus or train ride from Harbin, the capital city of Heilongjiang Province in Northeast China; The region 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 Heilongjiang Province, so it’s the perfect place to study Chinese and to benefit from our free Chinese lessons.

The climate in Daqing is similar to most major Canadian cities, with a long hot summer, mild spring and fall and a cold winter. Daqing 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 full-day skiing or snowboarding pass can cost less than 200RMB ($30USD). There are countless opportunities for winter sports, with high quality ski resorts throughout the area.

Daqing is also surrounded by volcanic hot springs, and dormant volcanoes, where popular spas are built. The countryside outside the city is dominated by superb natural wetlands, rivers with opportunities for rafting, large lakes and forests.

Daqing is also a short journey from a large Mongolian autonomous region, where traditional Mongolian culture is kept alive, with expansive grasslands, yurt camps and the chance to experience the Mongolian way of life first hand.

Nearby Harbin boasts the world famous Harbin Ice and Snow Festival, with colossal ice sculptures throughout the city, skating, ice slides, and sledding.

Social Activities:

Having 10 foreign teachers and nearly 100 Chinese staff, we have a strong sense of community. Our foreign teachers regularly socialize together and form lasting friendships. The school also organizes regular free and subsidized social events such as snowboarding and ski trips, barbecues, sports activities, rafting trips, sports days to name but a few.

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 an experienced trainer who has worked at Joy for many 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 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 fifteen. 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.
