      Career Tip
      Research the year-round climate in the part of the country you will be living and working. Relying on general 'hot/cold country' impressions can result in a shock.

      Ten Years On
    "I am thoroughly enjoying teaching young learners and adults in southern Italy (this is my second year) and continue to learn on a daily basis how I can best help my students. However, I do occasionally wonder what life will be like ten years on. What career steps should I take to ensure that I'm not in a rut teaching the same old lessons?"

    Above All Else – Quality Education
    Perfect English Training School
    Location Changchun, China
    Deadline --
    Experience No experience required
    Do you want to do real teaching and find out what the real China is like? This is as real as it gets!

    = The Job =
    You will be responsible for providing a highly engaging, effective and fun learning experience. You will have up to 20 in classroom hours, with the remaining 20 working hours to use at your own discretion (no need to stay in the office!) although you will need to prepare lessons and attend training sessions and meetings. You will use an already developed curriculum, and you will have access to flashcards, realia, DVDs and other teaching resources. A bilingual teaching assistant will accompany you in the classroom. You will also be expected to assist with the schools extra-curricular activities including camps, concerts and English parties. But you will still have time to travel, explore the local culture and of course learn the language.

    = The School =
    You will be working for one of Changchun’s oldest English language training centres, with a history of ten years. We are not a franchise, we’re a school. That means you will meet the real boss and headmaster, an American, who has been with the school from the very start. You will be joining a school that has a deep interest in the education of English in China. Perfect English is not here to simply entertain students or provide a babysitting service. Our motto is “Above All Else – Quality Education”

    We’re not small. We have six branches spread throughout Changchun with plans to open another two. We have contracts with kindergartens, primary schools, middle and high schools and private companies. The team you will be joining is also not small with currently around 30 foreign teachers, some of whom have been with us for over five years. More than half of our teachers renew after the initial one year contract, and the average length of stay for the past three years has been 1.8 years.

    = The Location =
    Changchun has an intriguing history as the home of the last Emperor of China and the capital of Japanese Manchuria during World War II. With a population of over 7 million, Changchun isn’t a small city, and yet you will still see mule driven carts selling fresh produce on street corners. Being a second tier city means the cost of living is a lot lower than Beijing or Shanghai. On the other hand there are mega-sized shopping malls with all the famous brands, three IMAX cinemas and Western style restaurants. Additionally, the Harbin Ice Festival, Dalian and North Korea are all a short train trip away.

    If you are planning to head home after an experience to remember, at Perfect English you will have the opportunity to learn transferable skills you can take to your next job. Alternatively you can continue your career as a foreign language teacher with Perfect English as we always promote from within where possible, and as a fast growing school in a new economic powerhouse, there are always opportunities.

    • Cover letter detailing your suitability for the job
    • Resume
    • Recent photo
    • Earliest availability to begin work

    We are looking forward to hearing from you!
