TEFL in Harbin, China
Date posted:2004-04-08 | Writer: Heng Feng Foreign Languages School | Email: email@example.com
We are looking for dedicated, outgoing and responsible teachers, able to sign and complete at least 1 year contract. Being a team player and good with kids certainly helps a lot. American, Canadian only, please (all applications will be considered, though).
Why come to Harbin and to Heng Feng Foreign Languages school, in particular? Here are our reasons:
The city. Harbin is one of the few Chinese cities that retained its culture. Unlike larger cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou (Canton) that have become fully businesslike, Harbin still has quite a few quiet, beautiful places of interest. Harbin also has assimilated several features of the Russian culture and thus provides a unique opportunity to sample both cultures and lifestyles.
Harbin also has 4 distinct seasons: it turns green in summer and hosts a worldwide-known ice carvings festival in winter.
Life in Harbin is considerably cheaper than in larger cities. Please, mind that while considered pretty small by Chinese standards, Harbin has a population of 9 million people. Compare: the cost of living in Harbin is approximately RMB 1, 000 per month (USD 120), while in Beijing or Guangzhou it can be as high as RMB 3,000-4,000 a month. Hence, our teachers have always been able to save more money.
The school. China is experiencing a boom in the educational market. Many new schools have appeared during the past couple of years and many more are opening up every day. However, Heng Feng Foreign Languages school offers something that many other schools lack. We offer stability. Heng Feng Foreign Languages school was established in 1995 and during 8 years of its existence has made its way to the top 5 school list. While someone else might promise more, we deliver.
Heng Feng Foreign Languages school has an established, proven over time curriculum. While teacher's creativity is always appreciated, we also have clear guidelines which might help you to manage your classroom. We also provide on-th-job training. We also understand that Chinese learners of English differ from native speakers and therefore we provide every teacher with an experienced, bilingual teacher assistant.
We realize that learning and teaching in a classroom of 60-80 students (which is an usual size for a Chinese public school class) is everything but possible, and therefore our classes are never larger than 25 students. Generally, you will find your classes even smaller which will help you to monitor students' progress and achieve better results.
Our management system includes constant feedback, evaluation and supervision by a manager. If something doesn't go as well as planned, we are always there to help you fix it.
We understand your needs not only as a teacher, but also as an individual. Therefore, you will always feel as a part of the team. However, we are far from infringing on your personal time and privacy. Our teachers are not required to spend their personal free time at school and are free to prepare for the classes at the time of their choice. We also understand your need to understand Chinese culture better and therefore do not lock you up in a "foreign residents" compound but rather provide you with an apartment downtown, close to all shopping malls, restaurants, movie theaters and gyms. Your apartmrnt is also always within a walking distance from the school and this takes care of the transportation problem.
Heng Feng Foreign Languages school thrives on establishing and supporting team spirit. We firmly believe in "work hard, play hard" principle. Our teachers and teacher assistants enjoy company picnics and other activities and our personnel are always there to help you.
