Job description

Are you creative, open-minded and have a thirst for travel? Ready for a year’s adventure working and living in one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic countries?

At Larus Teaching, we match the right people with the right schools, and provide our teachers with a wonderfully authentic teaching experience in China’s beautiful Hunan Province. As former English teachers in China ourselves, we understand what is involved in creating an unforgettable English teaching adventure. You will typically teach for just 10-20 hours per week plus a few additional hours each week for lesson planning, leaving plenty of time in between for learning Chinese, exploring the country and trying new things. Your contract with the school will be for two semesters, from September to July, including paid holidays around halfway through.

Boost your CV
Overall, spending a year as a teacher in China has something for everyone. Not only will you add priceless experiences to your CV, it's often a life-changing experience and one that'll stay with you in whatever you decide to do afterwards, with invaluable contacts gained along the way. Our teachers find they gain an international outlook, the ability to talk in front of large groups, and a thousand interesting stories to tell.

  • Free accommodation (private apartment)
  • Reimbursed return flight tickets
  • TEFL training and certification

What we are looking for
