  • Intensive training in China to become a teacher before teaching - All our positions that are for new teachers or teachers with minimal experience come with training. You will be taught both the theory and practice of classroom management, language teaching and educational psychology. After training you will have a period of classroom observation, to watch other teachers with more experience so as to gain further insight before managing your own classroom.
  • Airport pickup, city orientation and cultural assimilation introductions - Upon arrival you will be picked up at an airport and driven to your hotel before moving into your apartment. You will be given a tour of your area and all the local important establishments like supermarkets, hospitals and underground stops.
