Teaching Positions

Begin an international teaching career.

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.

—Mark Van Doren

Our teachers are valued educators, enthusing learners with energy & passion.

Our teaching placements are with kindergartens and private comprehensive schools. Teachers provide an immersive English environment in their lessons and are not required to speak Chinese in the classroom.

Our placement team take into account any previous experience that teachers might have, as well as their aptitude and preference for teaching different age groups, to ensure teachers are matched to a position that is appropriate to them and where they can be confident of their ability to succeed.

Elementary Schools
English teachers help their students to continue developing their skills and interest in English, helping them to understand, speak, read and write.
Lessons are longer than in kindergartens, but teachers spend more time outside of the classroom planning and preparing for them.
Schools will have their own syllabus for teachers to follow, so teachers plan and prepare fun lessons that build their students' knowledge and encourage a desire for lifelong learning.

What does a typical TEFL lesson consist of?

TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It’s a field of education that focuses on teaching English to non-native speakers. TEFL classes are designed to help students develop their English language skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, using age-appropriate and engaging activities to make the learning process enjoyable and effective.

Below is a breakdown of a typical TEFL class for elementary students. It might seem a lot to pack in but in practice you would omit or change the length of certain parts to suit your lesson objectives:

Warm-up (3 minutes):
Start the class with a short activity to engage students and create a positive learning atmosphere. Examples: Greetings and simple conversations, a quick game, or a fun song related to the day's lesson.
Introduction (3 minutes):
Briefly introduce the topic or language focus for the day. Use visuals, props, or simple gestures to aid understanding.
Speaking Practice (10 minutes):
Provide opportunities for students to use the new vocabulary and practice speaking. Pair or group activities, role plays, and simple dialogues work well. Encourage creativity and expression.
Listening Activities (10 minutes):
Play audio clips, songs, or short videos to expose students to spoken English. Use comprehension questions to check understanding. Incorporate interactive elements, like responding to questions or acting out scene.
Games or Fun Activities (10 minutes):
End the class with a fun, educational game related to the lesson. Games can reinforce vocabulary, grammar, or language skills in a playful way.
Writing Activities (5 minutes):
Assign simple writing tasks that reinforce the lesson's language points. Examples include completing sentences, writing short paragraphs, or creating simple stories. Provide support with vocabulary lists or sentence starters.
Review and Feedback (3 minutes):
Recap the key points of the lesson. Provide positive feedback and constructive comments. Encourage students to ask questions or seek clarification.
Closure (3 minutes):
Summarize the lesson briefly with a Q&A. Assign homework or preview what will be covered in the next class.
