Date 2012-11-28 14:11:06 Location : Asia:China
The Aston Educational Group is one of the largest English Educators in China. We have been in operation since 1996 and have developed a detailed curriculum for beginner, elementary, intermediate and advanced students.
We are now hiring teachers for the March term for our Schools in Chengdu, Mianyang, and Chongqing.
Chengdu lays on the western edge of the Sichuan Basin. This is a sub-tropical region which is geographically cuff off from the rest of China by the massive mountain ranges which encircle it, allowing a unique style of Chinese culture to have developed here over the course of millennium. The climate is dominated by these mountains and the weather systems they generate. Summers are ferociously hot and humid with occasional heavy rains. Winter gets cold but freezing temperatures are rare. Spring and autumn are very pleasant.
Chengdu Aston is located on the 1st Ring Road on the west side of the city, neighboring the Traditional Chinese Medicine College and near the Daoist temple Qingyang Gong. The building is very spacious with a unique design, large classrooms, and comfortable teachers facilities. The Aston family here consists of approximately 20 staff, including a Western manager, several full time Western teachers, a number of professional Chinese teachers, and several hundred students. Having opened our doors recently in the summer of 2005, we retain an intimate atmosphere although our numbers are growing fast!
Chongqing is situated at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. With beautiful hills and mountains the Mountain City has long been reputed for its wonderful scenery. Chongqing is one of the major cosmopolitan centres of inland China, the most economically important city in the southwest, and one of the biggest cities in the world. In 1997 the city and the surrounding region became a municipality in its own right, one of only four in China, a fact that the Chongqing people are fiercely proud of. The region receives relatively large numbers of international tourists and investment. In spite of this, life here is more casual, relaxed, and intimate than you would find living in major metropolitan areas elsewhere, due to the laid back nature of the Sichuan people.
Established in March 2006, Chongqing Aston School is one of the newest members of the Aston family and the second in the beautiful and historic Sichuan region.
Situated on the 4th floor of the Post Office Building in the vibrant Shapingba District on the famous three Gorges Square, we are surrounded by world class shopping, eating and numerous entertainment options on all sides. Currently our staff team includes both Western and Chinese managers, four foreign teacher, and six Chinese teachers.
