ESL Teacher | Primary | Multiple Cities Across China
Please remember to include this job requisition number (EERY0001P) in the application form.

Working at a public primary school in China is a wonderful opportunity for individuals who are seeking adventure and passionate about teaching.

Discover China through the eyes of your wonderful students. Live and explore a culture that will enrich your life. From cosmopolitan cities to ancient towns steeped in history, few places have as rich a cultural heritage as "the Middle Kingdom". Exploring the whole of China would take more than a lifetime, but to capture the essence of the culture is feasible in a short time.

Job Description:

Primary school teaching positions have the benefit of a light teaching load. You will only have about 16 to 24 classes over a five-day week. Most of 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 training schools - you may find classes are between 25 and 40 students.
