An experience you'll never forget - special entry level programs for those graduating between 2016-2018

You've studied hard for 3 or 4 years, so what now? Why not start the adventure of a lifetime and teach English in China. We have entry level vacancies in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and many other cities across China. Teach adults, children or at our online school. Receive a great local salary, competitive benefits and meet people from all over the world.

EF has over 200 schools across China with a teacher community of more than 2000 teachers. We have been in China for over 20 years so you can be sure of a safe, hassle free, legal transition to China.

Due to increasing expansion across China within our Kids & Teens schools we are able to offer FREE upfront flights to many locations.

About EF English First

EF English First is a division of EF Education First, the world's leading privately owned education company. Founded in 1965, EF operates in over 50 countries around the world. We have vacancies for teaching positions across China so if you prefer the fast paced city life like Shanghai, or want to be immersed in the more traditional culture of a smaller city, we probably have the position for you. We have both Kids and Teens schools and Adult schools in over 60 Cities in China.

Teaching at EF English First

At EF English First, you'll be provided with the resources to become the best teacher you can be. Our new and colourful classrooms offer state-of-the-art technology including Internet connected computers, interactive whiteboards or touchscreen TVs and iPads. We also offer a world-class teacher development program with certification courses exclusively for our teachers to help them move into more senior positions within EF.

Top tip:
Don't worry if you don't have any teaching experience yet. We're passionate about training and development, so we'll give you the training and the tools. You don't even need to be able to speak a second language. All you need is to demonstrate that you have the enthusiasm to learn, and we'll help you to become the best teacher you can be.

Join our growing community of teachers

Join a supportive community of EF staff and teachers from day one. We're here to provide the support you need every step of the way, from preparing your legal work visa to airport pickup. Learn how to order food in Chinese with our free language classes or attend a company sponsored social or cultural event. There's so much to experience living abroad and you'll experience it to the fullest with EF.

- You love adventure
- You want to make a profound impact with a meaningful job
- You are looking to join a diverse network of like-minded people
