EF Harbin is a modern English school established in 2010 as part of the English First franchise.

Due to these expansion plans, we are looking to add to our team of dedicated foreign teachers. We are seeking dedicated and passionate EFL Teachers who are available to start immediately.

Our school caters mainly to Young Learners (7-16 years old) and Very Young Learners (3-6 years old) but also has some adult classes and one to one tutoring, allowing our teachers to gain a broad range of teaching experiences. Applicants should ideally be comfortable teaching all ages and levels, although we do aim to match teachers to their preferred age groups where possible.

We have had teachers come from all over the world to experience teaching in China and living in Harbin, and many choose to stay on with us well beyond their initial contract due to the friendly working environment as well as the strong academic training and support they receive.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


Unit 6 provided me with foundation on the grammar points for the four past tenses in English. I will take note of the common mistakes students make with each tense so that I can better correct my students and give them examples of how not to use each tense. There were quite a few bad examples that I notice some of my friends and I use so I may correct some of them when I notice errors!This unit has taught me that there are different types of teachers and almost all teachers can be categorize into one of these listed types. Each teaching strategy comes with its pros and cons. Plus explains what it means to be a good teacher. This helps myself understand if i am being a good teacher or not, because i can remember the traits listed and see if i am meeting those traits.
