Job Description

Importantly Spirit Kids differs from other schools in that we offer a great salary and good terms & conditions - but the required number of teaching hours is only 18 hours per week (prior preparation not counted towards 18 hours) Compare that with most other schools and companies who require 25-30 hours per week!

Spirit Kids Royal English is a well-established English language training centre that provides language learning to children aged 2-12. Our company HQ is in Guangzhou, but we have franchises and affiliated kindergartens all over China. We are rapidly expanding and therefore always on the lookout for new teachers. We have successfully employed more than 100 international teachers, and we have over 10,000 students enrolled.

We believe that children best learn in a positive and stimulating environment where they are treated as learners, but also as: still children. That is why our successful teaching builds on communicative teaching methods that incorporate many elements of game play, physical movement and activity: children learn best through enjoying themselves! But while we believe in a warm, inclusive classroom atmosphere, we also expect a lot of our learners, and we help them set specific goals. We believe that in educating children, the aim is for child, teacher, school and parent to reach these goals together. Start by visiting our
