Schools & Age Groups

China is one of the most diverse countries in the world in both culture and scenery. Every province has its own unique landmarks, speciality foods and traditions. Read up on our program location and make sure you plan lots of travel on the weekends to make the most of your time here!

We offer positions in Kindergarten, Primary School, Middle School, and High School.


Public schools in China usually don't require a fee for students to attend. There are little to no foreigners working here and English is a fairly new subject so it will be the perfect opportunity for you.


Private schools in China require a yearly or semester fee. Teaching English is a priority here so there are other foreigners working at the school. Many private schools also happen to be boarding schools. 


The training centres in China focus on intensive English tuition. Classes take place after school and on weekends. Classes are smaller and organised based on ability, not age.


International schools require a yearly/semester fee and there are other foreigners working at the school. Many also happen to be boarding schools. They use a foreign curriculum and promote international education.
