English schools in China
EF English First is the largest recruiter of native English speaking TEFL teachers to our network of 80 schools throughout China . Taiyuan is located 3 hours from Beijing and 6 hours from Xi’An , famous for the terracotta warriors. We’ve got streets lined with weeping willows, sheltering the hundreds of street vendors selling everything from fruit to ornaments and mobile phones. If you want to experience the real China from up-close or if you’ve had enough of teaching in big, westernized cities like Shanghai , Guangzhou or Shenzhen, but don’t want to be too far away from Beijing , consider what Taiyuan has to offer. We’ve got a feel like we’re a village, but still have a population of almost 4 million. Taiyuan is authentic Chinese where you’ll still see Mao style amongst the seniors, blended with hip looking woman in designer clothes.
As far as teaching, if you want lots of support to fine tune your communicative style, or need lots of support to ensure at the end of a contract you can go anywhere and be dropped in to a classroom and teach what you’re expected, you’ll get it here. You’ll receive 1-to-1 training and guidance, personal tips and you’ll have the chance to observe other teachers as well as being observed by others.
We have a low turnover here at EF Taiyuan with teachers commonly signing up for a second, third or even fourth period. EF English First teachers are motivated, enthusiastic and open to new experiences. I am looking for candidates who are patient, flexible, energetic and personable. With 40 years’ experience in language education, we offer comprehensive teacher induction and career development and opportunities to transfer within its network of 200 English language schools operating in 16 countries.
