If you don't have any teaching experience, it's not a problem as we'll teach you everything you need to know. We are happy to put you in contact with other foreign teachers who have worked at the school if you'd like to share their experiences. 

TEACH LOW HOURS! Travelling to China is a huge move and it's important to have time to fully embrace the experience. That's why you can teach a 23 hour p / w contract which includes 3 days off each week.
