Teaching in Xuzhou
Xuzhou is the only city currently available on our 7-week Summer Teaching Programme. We offer placements here with a long-standing partner of ours, to whom we’ve sent more than 50 teachers over the years. Run by an experienced local couple who have worked in education for years, this placement is ideal for anyone looking to gain excellent teaching experience and explore an interesting city.
Teachers will work with Primary/Middle School students aged between 7-15. You’ll be responsible for planning and leading your own lessons, focusing on helping students to practice and improve their spoken English. You’ll be provided with a classroom assistant, textbooks and guidance, though there’ll be plenty of opportunity to think outside the box and use your creativity to make your lessons special.
Summer Teachers in Xuzhou are expected to teach for a minimum of 4.5 hours per day, made up by several short lessons lasting up to 40 mins. You will usually only work with a few groups of students, giving you the chance to get to know them and see their progress. Each lesson block is followed by a short break to give you and your students a chance to relax.
Food & Accommodation
Our Xuzhou Summer Teachers receive food and accommodation as part of the programme fee. You will be housed in a nearby apartment for the duration of the placement, which is equipped with comfortable beds, a bathroom and air-conditioning.
Teachers are required to share an apartment with another participant of the same sex.
The school provides three meals a day for all teachers. Should you choose to eat outside the school, you will be responsible for the cost of this.
