Date: Friday, 2 March 2018, at 8:18 a.m.

API is pleased to share this new opportunity to teach abroad in China, which offers a
budget-friendly way for study abroad alumni, teachers, or professionals to enrich
their personal lives while gaining teaching experience abroad.

We offer several options for teaching placements in China, including a paid teaching option, and a homestay teaching option (with stipend).

For the paid teaching option, placements are available to teach English in primary and secondary schools.

Participants are required to teach 20-25 classroom hours and put in an additional
15-20 hours of classroom prep, grading, office hours, and staff meetings per week.
English training is an important step to help locals succeed in school, find better
jobs, and improve communication in the global market. This program will not only
give you invaluable international work experience but will also help the Chinese
population improve their lives!

The homestay teaching option is an all-inclusive program that integrates educational travel, English teaching and tutoring, childcare, travel, and formal Mandarin lessons. A hybrid between English tutoring and Au Pairing, participants become an elder sibling to children of a Chinese family for 3-12 months, while offering extra English language support.
