There are teaching jobs available at many different types of schools located around China, with opportunities to teach age groups ranging from kindergarten to university. Chinese schools tend to be one of four types:
1. Public Schools
These government-run schools are often fairly well organized with class sizes of between 30 to 50 students. Students’ enthusiasm for English will vary, as this does not tend to be the main focus of the educational curriculum. However, teachers are treated with respect and given a lot of control over what is taught in the classroom.
2. Private Schools
These widely differ depending on how well funded they are. The most impressive private schools have insane facilities, which include things like cinemas, climbing walls, and even ponies! Class sizes are smaller to that of public schools, though compensation may be slightly higher. With high tuition fees comes high expectations; parents who send their kids to private school often have hopes of sending their children to university abroad, which means that if they feel their child is not improving fast enough, they will not hesitate to speak to the school about your teaching performance!
3. Training Centers
These centers offer English lessons for students of all ages outside of school. Therefore, depending on the center, you may be catering to:
Very young children who have not yet started formal schooling whose parents want them to get a head-start on learning English.
Students who wish to take English lessons after school or on weekends .
Adults who are seeking to improve their English for personal or professional reasons.
The main advantages of teaching in China at this type of center are small class sizes (often no more than 15 students) and access to good quality resources and facilities.
4. International Schools
These tend to cater to non-Chinese students living in China and often have high hiring requirements. However, benefits are good, often with longer holidays, and higher compensation packages, to reflect American or UK standards.
