Real English Academy is a professionally run, joint Sino-Western managed, English language training school in Zhanjiang City, in Guangdong Province. Newly established, we are rapidly expanding our programs and seek motivated, eager, and ambitious teachers to join our Sino-Western team in Zhanjiang. All teachers will receive curriculum training, lesson plan development assistance and ongoing feedback for professional development. We aspire for our teachers to consider their time at Zhanjiang to be an adventure and learning experience.
Unlike other English language training schools throughout China, we do not use Chinese teachers. Rather, you will be the primary teacher for the students, using immersion and creative teaching strategies to help students develop confidence and fluency as rapidly as possible. Starting from a young age, students exposed solely to a foreign teacher will learn more, and more accurately, than those learning in a primarily Chinese language environment.

As the only foreign-teacher only English language school in Zhanjiang, we offer English training for students of all ages. The curriculum changes with different age groups to ensure the material is both age appropriate and engaging. We offer classes for students of all ages with young learners predominating.
All teachers are provided with basic teaching materials to help them develop creative and engaging lesson plans. Flash cards, stuffed animals, and learning toys are available. We will also provide other materials as specifically requested by the teacher. Teachers are given the freedom to go beyond the basic lesson plans and are encouraged to share their ideas and insights with management.
English teaching is a skill, one which needs to be honed over time. At Real English Academy, we strive to build professional skills and confidence in our teaching staff. Through regular meetings with management and ongoing training opportunities, our teachers gain new ideas to integrate into their lessons and improve their classroom and time management skills.

Zhanjiang lies at the southernmost point of the Chinese mainland, located between tropical Hainan Island and the economic powerhouse of the Pearl River Delta. Zhanjiang is famous throughout China for its seafood the freshest available, fruits, and year-round mild sub-tropical climate. In the late 19th century, Zhanjiang was the seat of a French colony, much like Britains Hong Kong although much more laid back. While Guangzhou and Hong Kong are bustling, life in Zhanjiang remains far more relaxed. Eating and drinking on verandas overlooking the bay is a way of life! Come and experience a new life in China at the Real English Academy! The city and beaches are waiting for you!
