The city of Zhuhai is situated in an outstanding geographic location. It’s bordered by Macao to the south, Guangzhou to the north and is only 36 miles across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong. The city’s clean environment and attractive coastline are just two of the many reasons why our TEFL course trainees have given Zhuhai so much praise.

Zhuhai was awarded the ‘International Award for Best Practices Living Environment’ as deemed by the United Nations Centre for Human Settlement in 1999. It has also been awarded other titles such as ‘Top Tourist City of China’ and ‘City of 100 Islands’ due to the number of islands, large and small, which make up the greater city area. During your stay here you will have plenty of time to explore some of these beautiful areas such as Hebao Island which has no less than eight sandy beaches, the amazing 4000 meter long beach at Danan Bay, as well as the beautiful Feisha Beach which offers some great swimming and other beach activities. These are just a few examples, there are dozens of other uninhabited islands in the area so why not take some time out and explore them yourself!

    If you do not already have a Chinese visa you can apply for a Tourist (L) visa in order to attend the course. You can obtain a Tourist (L) visa from your local consulate or a travel agent. In order to obtain a visa you will need the following documents prepared:

  • What is the course schedule?

    Close

    Normally all the classes are scheduled from 8:50 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. during weekdays, however, we do observe the many Chinese national holidays, which means we sometimes have to work over the weekend to make up for these days off. Trainees will be scheduled for observed teaching practice on or off site depending on students’ circumstances. Chinese students are usually very well behaved in the classroom and are interested and excited about learning English with a foreigner. Class sizes range from 10 to 25. Trainees will teach lessons of 30 to 50 minutes according to the student’s timetable.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Close

    We offer English classes for Chinese students who are interested in improving their English language abilities. Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Who usually attends the course?

    Close

    We average groups of six to ten trainees. Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Close

    For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Close

    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop but this is not essential.
