About your work hours

During the 6-hour day you will also be given a 1 1/2-hour dinner break (5pm - 6:30pm), with the vast majority of classes taking place after 6:30pm (prior to that will be lesson planning etc).
Saturday and Sunday can alternate, but will usually be 6 hours as well (9am - 3pm or 2pm - 8pm), again with 1 1/2-hour lunch / dinner breaks. As stated previously weekends can alternate and you may be asked to come in early or stay later if classes need to be covered (which is not a common occurrence.

At weekends (Fri - Sun) all meals will be provided for by the school from the local restaurants from around Yuxi.
Yuxi is a small city located around 60 miles from the capital of Yunnan province, Kunming. Like most cities in China it is developing quickly but still maintains a lot of its old buildings and charm. Yuxi has beautiful scenery, set by the mountains, base of Longma Mountain, it provides the perfect opportunity for treks and hiking, discovering caves and waterfalls and enjoying the countryside. Yunnan has the most diverse ethnic communities in the whole of China! Therefore, Yuxi is a rich melting pot of culture and cuisine, discovery and diversity, making it a true travellers dream. Yuxi has a small expat community of people from the UK, USA, Canada and South Africa, of all different ages who will make you feel welcome! Yuxi enjoys a great climate, with plenty of sunshine (Kunming, our closest city is known as the “Spring City”), but minus the extreme hot and humid summers, cold and bitter winters that you would experience in Chinas eastern mega cities such as Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou, not to mention the fresh clean air in Yuxi! Yuxi has a low cost of living, meaning you can save plenty to travel or take home with you. If you find yourself homesick you will find a handful of Western style restaurants, from Italian to French, Korean to Japanese. There is also a Walmart supermarket located in the centre of the city which allows you to purchase some of the items from back home. If you want to enjoy the local cuisine, there are plenty of restaurants and bars, serving all types of Chinese food, from Sichuan hot pot to real local (and sometimes very spicy) Yunnan cuisine.
Yuxi isn’t like a first tier city, or even second or third, HOWEVER • Experience real China!
There is a LOT of foreigners in 1st tier cities. Even the locals are much more westernized. This can make it harder to immerse in to the Chinese culture and see the real China. Yes, some people want that. However, you risk getting sucked into your own little ‘foreign bubble’. It’s important to put yourself outside of your comfort zone. This way you’ll make more Chinese friends, learn more mandarin and have some great stories to tell.
