Teaching Destination: China

Teaching in China means the opportunity to be surrounded with landscapes of glaciers or fertile valleys, ancient pagodas and monasteries, and feasted with hearty cuisine. It is the land of the panda with world famous zoos and parks committed to their conservation. Whether in the grassy farmlands or sophisticated cities, the fascinating blend of ancient and modern is a dramatic dynamic no matter where you look. Busy markets, vibrant night life or tranquil mountain valleys are all home to the Sichuan people who are famous for their hospitality.

What It’s Like To Teach In China

Teachers in China enjoy a high level of local and national support. With the implementation of the nation’s English Program Sichuan (EPS), China’s Ministry of Education has devoted efforts to secure the best teachers of the English language.

English teachers will work in public schools teaching local students English as a Second Language. They will also serve as teacher assistants throughout all education levels, kindergarten to university. This can include helping to develop curriculum.

Destination Sichuan

Welcome to Sichuan – a land of creaking wooden pagodas, ancient monasteries, giant glacial mountains, rolling grasslands, fertile valleys, fiery cuisine and hearty locals!

This feels like undiscovered China, a place you can you join Tibetans as they pay homage to the holy nature reserve of Yading, reflect in moody temples that guard the jagged mountain peaks and get up close and personal with some of China’s most famous and fluffy residents, at the Giant Panda ecology park in Chengdu!

Beyond Sichuan’s sophisticated capital city of Chengdu, the black tile roofs and narrow streets of Langzhong offer a fascinating glimpse into fast disappearing old China. You can get further off the beaten track in spectacular Ganzi, gateway to Tibet, and busy market town set amongst a dramatic background of snowswept mountains.

Wherever you are in Sichuan, try the local hotpot – a fiery affair with seasoned meat, lots of fresh vegetables and some seriously spicy chillis!

The Sichuanese are famed for their hospitality… Expect rock-star reverence wherever you go!
