University teaching positions have the benefit of a light teaching load. You will only have about 15 to 20 classes over a five-day week. The openings do not require office hours, which means you'll have plenty of time to pursue other interests, or to take on private tuition. Class sizes may be larger than in private training schools - you may find classes are between 25 and 40 students.
Tianjin is best known as the main port of entry for China's northeastern manufacturing corridor. It's the largest coastal city in the north and is just a stone's throw from the capital - going to Beijing is a 30-minute ride by high-speed rail.
Tianjin has a rich history and has many examples of old British and Italian architecture. The famous Italian Concession Area has the largest cluster of Old Italian architecture outside of Italy. Other local attractions are the Huanyaguang section of the Great Wall, the Tianjin Eye and Tianjin's Ancient Culture Street. Outside the city centre is Binhai, which includes Tanggu and TEDA (Tianjin Economic Development Zone). These areas are home to much of Tianjin's commercial activity and is one of the engines driving the city's rapid economic growth.
