Established in 2002, our school has twelve classrooms, more than 500 students, and ten foreign teachers. We offer courses for all age groups, from pre-k through adult students. All students are given a personal placement test by one of our foreign teachers to assess their English level and assess their English ability. Students are placed by age and by language proficiency.
Our school's staff is a tight-knit group who often socialize together after work and on days off. Many travel together and take advantage of the rich historical and cultural sites within and near the city. Teachers often make lifelong friendships here, not just with their foreign colleagues but with local Chinese friends and students.
You will have the opportunity do something you love while growing personally and professionally in a supportive environment. We hope you will join our growing family here in Tangshan - apply for this position today!
