    Bozhou is a small city, located in the north of Anhui province. Air Quality Index of 80-105. Situated 5hrs from Beijing & 6hrs from Shanghai by train. Bozhou International School opens its doors for the first time in September 2014. You will need experience. There will not be schemes of work set up and resources ready made, so candidates lacking in experience will be considered only if they can demonstrate exceptional self motivation and initiative. We're looking for candidates with an interest in all things Oriental.

    One of the few things this small city has in abundance is Culture. Home of Hua Mulan, the heroine of the Disney film MULAN, Bozhou is the Capital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in central China. Additionally a capital city during the 3 kingdoms Dynasty period (220AD-265AD) and home to one of the Oldest Rice Wine Distilleries (Gu Jing Gong), we have culture oozing out of the local hot springs and dripping from local vendor's food carts. It was additionally the hometown of the teacher who taught Confucius, Lao Zi and home to Hua Tou, the celebrated Doctor and father of TCM.

    Before applying please consider this: Bozhou is small! The local supermarket only started selling cheese last year, before that you had to drive 150kms+ or order from the internet. Internet Cheese, that's the type of city you're moving to, think about it. Internet Cheese.

Middle School ESL Teachers

    Teaching Job Description

     

    Located in the capital of Traditional Chinese Medicine and home to Hua Mulan, inspiration for Disney’s movie character, Mulan, Bozhou is a 1500-year old, Tier 3 city in northern Anhui.

    We’re situated around 5 hours from both Shanghai and Beijing (by fast train).  We have a very small expat community and the city has yet to see the rapid westernization common in bigger cities. If you are looking for a Burger King and Starbucks on every corner – this is not the city for you. Living costs are approximately 1/5th of those found in Beijing and Shanghai and this is the perfect place if you are interested in learning Mandarin as we provide 3 lessons per week as part of our Mandarin course.

     

    Bozhou International School (Bozhou No.1 South School International Cambridge Examinations Centre) is looking to recruit 2 ESL teachers for its middle school program.

     

    Students will be aged from 12 - 15 years old and class sizes are kept deliberately small at 20 students so all teachers have time to give individual attention to each student. This compares to over 50 in a class in normal Chinese schools.

    A complete set of teaching materials and lesson plans are provided from Oxford University Press - New Headway series of textbooks with their additional itools SMARTboard resources.

     

    Teaching hours: 23 per week – Due to B.I.S. being a full-time international school, there will be a small amount of flexible office hours/ECA activities/weekly training/game development in addition to the teaching hours each week. Fixed requirement to plan 3 different lesson plans per week.
