The Job
We are now recruiting energetic, passionate young learner English language teachers. Our high academic standards and enjoyable learning environment have established us as the number one language school in Fuzhou, Shenzhen, Xiamen, Changle and Minhou. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who wants to work in an established school with exceptional resources and a supportive teaching team.

Our school was started in 2003 with the aim of doing ESL differently than other schools in China. Here at our school, the quality of the education we provide matters. We aim to provide students with creative, engaging, and educational lessons that will allow them to develop their language skills in a safe and supportive environment. Due to continued success we now have a total of 10 schools (and 5 more opening in this summer) all with modern facilities and cutting edge teaching resources.

We offer courses to students of all ages, with the majority being young learners from 3 to 16 years old. Our commitment to education extends into high level of support we provide for our teachers and staff. From a supportive community to welcome new teachers, to comprehensive initial training and on going professional development, we are here to make sure that our teachers have the resources, training, and support to succeed in the classroom.

We have small class sizes so you can build a rapport with your students, every class has a Teaching Assistant to help you and the students and we provide everything you need to create fun and interactive lessons.

We also believe in having a work life balance. On average our teachers are in the classroom for around 16 hours each week. Which leaves you with lots of time for exploring the city and surrounding countryside, learning Chinese, playing sports, going to the gym and immersing yourself in Chinese culture.


Review from Matt E.
My time at this school is one I will always remember very fondly. Taking the plunge and moving far from home is a challenge to say the least. Particularly for a first time ESL Teacher this support is absolutely indispensable and, even for those who have taught before or have previously lived in China, not enough can be said about the help, advice and useful services they offer. This support allows you to focus on teaching well.


Fuzhou The City
Most people have not heard of Fuzhou, but why would you? After all it is only a city of some 6 million people! Fuzhou is a small Chinese city, and capital of Fujian province. It is coastal, surrounding by mountains and in 2014 was ranked 7th in china for air quality. The city is constantly changing with new skyscrapers appearing every week but the heart of the city remains. From tiny little side streets with 10RMB noodle bars, to quirky coffee shops, lush parks and working temples Fuzhou has a lot of character.

Shenzhen The City
Shenzhen is located in the southern portion of the Guangdong Province, on the eastern shore of the Pearl River Delta. Neighboring the Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong (located just south of Shenzhen), the location of Shenzhen gives it a geographical advantage for economic development. In 1980, the first Special Economic Zone of China was built in Shenzhen. From then on, Shenzhen has become a highlighted city of China, one known for its rapid economic growth.

Xiamen The City
Located at the southeast coast of China, Xiamen is a tourist city of Fujian Province famous for its attractive seascape. The name of Xiamen was consequently given, which means a gate of China. As one of the forerunners of the special economic zones of China, Xiamen mainly consisting of Xiamen Island, Gulangyu Island, the north bank area of the Jiulong River and Tongan County, is connected with the mainland by the Xiamen Bridge. The city is well known for its beautiful natural scenery, fresh air and the clean environment.

Changle The City
Changle is located in eastern Fujian province, China. This is a small city just outside of Fuzhou, around 45mins away by car. While small, the city has a lot going for it: close to the beach, clean air and enough of the essentials nearby (Starbucks, etc). Changle faces the East China Sea and is connected to Mawei district by the Min River. Due to an increase in businesses, the province is now one of the richest provinces in China.

Minhou The City
Minhou is a small, peaceful city just outside of Fuzhou in warm, south-eastern China. This small, peaceful city by the Min river. With a population of under 300,000 this mountainous county has incredible views. Minhou is surrounded by mountains and offers a variety of beautiful parks meaning that it is easy to get out of the city and into nature. You are also just a short trip away from the big city of Fuzhou. Despite being a smaller city, Minhou has a lot to offer. There are even some western flavours (yes, there is a Starbucks here) but it is overwhelmingly an authentic Chinese experience!
