- Deadline: Thu 31 Oct 2019 00:00:00 UTC
- China: Beijing.
- Nova ESL
- Experience: NOT APPLICABLE
- Positions: 10
- Degree Required
With one month's holiday in winter and around two months' summer holiday, teaching in a Beijing public school leaves ample time for travelling and provides a high salary on which do so.
Details of Position
A modern global megacity with three millennia of rich history, Beijing is both one of the oldest cities in the world and one of the world's leading centres for education, culture, innovation and technology.
Renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, parks, gardens and tombs, Beijing contains seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites; most notably the Great Wall of China and the grand Forbidden City complex - the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties.
With a vibrant city centre, Beijing delivers all the benefits of living in a big city: experience Sanlitun's bar scene, taste authentic Chinese cuisine, scout street markets for hidden treasures, or shop for high-end brands in the largest mall in Asia. And yet - encircled by mountains capped by the meandering Great Wall of China - Beijing is perfectly poised to appreciate China's natural wonders: view cherry blossom blooming on the hillsides in spring, and watch autumn leaves turn red in Beijing's many national parks.
TEACHING IN A BEIJING PRIMARY SCHOOL
Beijing primary schools have one month's holiday in winter and around two months' summer holiday, so teaching in our schools leaves plenty of free time to travel and a high salary on which do so.
