The Job

Our school is now recruiting qualified English teachers with playful and adventurous spirit to teach in Fuzhou, the capital city of Fujian province. Our school has built first class facilities with excellent teaching and learning environment. We currently have positions for Early Childhood Education teachers (3 to 6 year olds), Primary Homeroom Teachers (6 to 12 year olds), High School PE Teachers and High School English Language Arts Teachers.

Our international school has adopted an American curriculum with textbooks from the United States. The role of the foreign teacher is to encourage English communication in a fun and natural way. They are to communicate with learners in an engaging, age-appropriate manner. Teachers may deliver the curriculum using immersive learning techniques such as singing, dialogue and role playing combined with formal exercises.

One of the methods we use to engage in their learning process is story-telling which is designed specifically for ESL learners. The dialogues in the story can be studied and applied to the daily lives of the students. Role plays and drama are also effective ways of allowing students to express themselves using the English language. This can help stimulate real life scenarios and build up their confidence in using the language.

The School

Founded in 2012, our International School is the only international school approved by the Fuzhou Ministry of Education (School for Foreign Children). We provide an American English curriculum and is located right next to West Lake and Panda World, a beautiful and tranquil environment.

Our campus covers an area of over 7,000 sq. meters. The design of the school buildings blend modern Chinese style with Western style. We have invested heavily in top rate building facilities and an excellent teaching environment. School facilities include an indoor gym and outdoor play field, a golf practice simulator, table tennis area, basketball court, swimming pool, dance room, music hall, art room, animation room, library, multi-function hall, language lab, 3D cinema, multimedia classroom, science and technology museum, physics and chemistry laboratories as well as other advanced facilities.

Fuzhou – The City

Fujian Province is a sub-tropical area in the southeast of China. The capital city, Fuzhou, is equidistant from both Shanghai and Hong Kong, making it a pivotal point in many large Chinese businesses. Fuzhou is warm all year round. There are countless temples, the most important being the Taoist temple at Gu Shan (Drum Hill). It has a library which ranks as one of the most important in the Tao religion.
