We are seeking graduates to deliver English speaking and listening lessons in Chinese schools, with an option to add coaching PE, Sport or Performing Arts. This is not academic, written English language – but use of practical methods such as talk and response, using pictures, body-language. It is also to help increase their vocabulary of words they could use in conversation – such as slang, common English phrases and idioms.
It is part of a Chinese University led programme (Beijing Normal University, Qufu University and Shandong University), to support better spoken English in order to improve life-chances of Chinese people in second and third level locations.
China needs a huge injection of English speakers to help develop this gap in their development, and many schools wish to 'get ahead of the game' as they anticipate speaking becoming part of future examinations.
Optional PE and Sport coaching / teaching: Many Chinese schools are increasingly placing a higher emphasis on Physical Education, and adding this element is a rewarding way to bolster experience and skills. The focus is on assisting PE teachers in lessons and/or coaching extra-curricular sport.
