With unrivalled experience in supporting foreign teachers in the city, we understand the kind of questions, anxieties and excitement you may have when considering a new job in China. At Bai Da Wei, we set the standards in teacher selection, support and education.

Due to further expansion of the school this autumn we are seeking five new native English speaking teachers to join our team between now and August 2009. Our teaching excellence stems through our unique staff development and structured induction, fully preparing you for your first class.

• Choice of contracts: 18, 22 or 26 teaching hours plus 2 hour weekly staff meeting earning you 6,000, 7,000 or 8,000RMB/month respectively.

Average local salary is 1,000RMB. One can live comfortably on 2,000RMB

• Each class is taught with the support of a Chinese teacher

• Attractive bonus scheme for student retention (with manager support to help you achieve this)

By now you will see that at Bai Da Wei, we seek to provide everything we can to bring the best out in our teachers and with your input, strive for constant improvement of the school. In return, we look for teachers that have some or all of the following:

• a teacher that loves to work with children and is happy to teach through play, song and laughter (essential)

• native English speakers from the USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa (essential)

• a Bachelorís degree (desirable but not essential)

• some form of Teaching English certification (advantageous)

Some of our teachers are now in their forth and fifth year at the school and with an average turnover of 2.5 years we believe this is a testament to the quality of employment we provide.

Changchun is a large and industrious city with a strong heartbeat, without the living expense of other large cities in China. You can realistically save more than half your salary each month, even on the 18 hour/6,000RMB contract. Because Bai Da Wei teachers are managed by native English speakers, we have been through the Chinese employment process and understand all aspects of teaching English and living in China.

When considering where in the world you want to teach English, the big 3 for ESL/EFL/TEFL jobs are:

Asia: Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia are the popular spots because they have so many ESL/EFL/TEFL jobs available. In addition, there are always positions coming up infrequently in places like Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia though you must be a qualified teacher to obtain these. You may even find positions for Cambodia and Laos but you should look at the reputation of ESL/EFL/TEFL schools carefully due to lack of a solid legal system for recourse.

Europe: Everyone dreams of teaching English in Greece, Italy, France or Spain but unless you are an European Union (EU) citizen it is difficult to obtain these teaching positions. The more frequent ESL/EFL/TEFL jobs are available in Eastern Europe in places like Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine and Russia. These positions don\'t pay very well by western standards but they provide a lot of opportunity for travel while not teaching.

The Middle East: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates (UAE) are the most common with Bahrain, Yemen and Qatar occasionally having ESL/EFL/TEFL job openings. Now there are also more teaching positions available in Iraq. The Middle East is popular for the money paid for teaching positions but don\'t expect much of a social life due to cultural restraints.
