Teaching in Haining
The camp takes place in a Primary/Middle School that specialising in teaching English to students aged 8-14. As a Summer Teacher here, you’ll be responsible for planning and leading lessons with the aim of improving students’ conversational skills.
Following arrival in Haining, you’ll be given a syllabus and a schedule and paired up with a teaching assistant. Though your syllabus outlines what you should cover, you’ll have the chance to use your creativity and imagination to make your lessons a bit different.
Classes consist of around 30-40 students, so you’ll find that your teaching assistant is a great help in executing your lesson plan. This person will also be your main contact throughout the placement and will help answer any questions that arise.
Summer Teachers in Haining will be expected to teach for a maximum of 4.5 hours per day. The schedule is formed of 3 lesson blocks, which are broken into 2 sessions lasting 40 mins each. Each session is followed by a short break, giving you and your students a chance to relax.
Food & Accommodation
Both food and accommodation are included in our Haining Summer Teaching Programme. You will stay in a nearby hotel for the duration of the placement, which is equipped with comfortable beds, a bathroom and air-conditioning.
Teachers are required to share a hotel room with another participant of the same sex.
The hotel provides a daily breakfast for all teachers, while the school caters for lunch and dinner. This is the perfect opportunity to try well-prepared authentic Chinese dishes.
