:Foreign Teachers on Campus; - Teach ESL in Suzhou・s public schools
:Foreign Teachers on Campus; is a government project sponsored by Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) Education Bureau. 35 foreign teachers were involved in this project for the 2013-2014 school year. The main purpose of this project is to provide students with an authentic English learning environment, improve their English proficiency and enhance their cultural awareness and sensitivity. As one of the partners, U-learn is delegated to run the project in every matter of operation from recruitment to day-to-day support. Several full time teaching positions are wanted for G3-G5 (age 9-11) in primary school and G7-G8 (age 13-14) in middle school for the 2014-2015 school year.

Why teach in a public school?
English is a very important component of public school・s curriculum in Suzhou. However, unlike private schools and international schools where most of the classes are taught in English, students in public schools rarely have the resources and opportunities to practice English outside of regular English classes. Your commitment to the project can help the students gain access to an authentic English-speaking environment and experience a taste of western culture.

On the other hand, this project also allows you to learn more about China・s public education system. As a full time employer of the school, you will have the chance to interact with teachers and school officials and participate in workshops and teacher seminars organized by schools and SIP Education Bureau.

Why live in Suzhou?
A quick nap away from Shanghai・s soaring skyline aboard the high-speed train (the fastest takes about 25 minutes), Suzhou is situated on the lower reaches of the Yangtze River and on the shores of Taihu Lake and is a part of the Yangtze River Delta region. Marco Polo once declared that Suzhou was one of the most beautiful cities in China. While Polo・s Suzhou was a charming merchant town of whitewashed houses, tree-lined canals and sumptuous gardens, the modern Suzhou has well preserved its historical heritage and at the same time transformed itself into a fashionable and worldly city.
