Positions: Full time English Language Teacher
Locations: Kunming, Yunnan Province, China

The Job

Our school in Kunming is now holding interviews for English teachers to join our team. We focus on teaching engaging, communicative English language classes to young learner students aged from 3 to 14 years old with some adult classes too.

Our English School was established in 1977. Since that time it has grown to more than 350 schools in five countries. Our focus has always been on providing quality lessons to students, young and old alike. We recognize that good lessons require good teachers therefore we provide excellent training, ongoing development as well as opportunities for promotion and advancement.

Our school has staffs of fully trained ESL teachers, all of which are native English speakers, hailing from the United States, the UK, Canada and South Africa. They are ably assisted by the dedicated support staff of local Chinese Teaching Assistants.

The average working week consists primarily of afternoon and evening classes Wednesday to Friday and then morning and afternoon classes on the weekend, with Monday and Tuesday free to relax or explore.


Courses are designed around a core of set texts and supplementary materials. Teachers are encouraged to use a communicative approach to teaching and to add their own extra resources and ideas to bring variety to the learning environment. All new teachers undergo 2 weeks of Initial Training, introducing our curriculum and our teaching methodology. After this, we provide on-going training and valuable feedback on your classes, making sure nobody is left in the dark to struggle with a class. Chinese Teaching Assistants are in the class with us at all times, and are there to help with any complicated subjects or difficult students.

Kunming The City
Kunming, the modern capital city and transportation hub of Chinas southern Yunnan province, has a large student population and a temperate year round climate. Bridges and pavilions cross the islands of Cui Hu (Green Lake), a park designed in the 17th century. Nearby is Yuantong Si. A temple founded by Buddhists in the 8th century, it features a statue hall and a pond with an ornate stone bridge.

Kunming is known in China as the City of Eternal Spring. The air is also quite clean compared to many Chinese cities, but the population of the prefecture is closing on 10 million and the city is expanding rapidly, with modern buildings and numerous highways emitting their fair share of air pollution. In addition to its own charms, Kunming also serves as a hub from which to explore Yunnan Province
