The job

EF English First, Taiyuan is now interviewing for qualified English language teachers with a drive and passion for teaching. If you have the attributes of an effective teacher and the desire to work in a rewarding and fulfilling school we would like to talk to you.

EF Taiyuan was opened in 2002 and since then we have build a hugely successful school based on the principles of delivering high quality, enjoyable classes to all of our students. We have recently relocated to a brand new location and can boast a cutting edge learning environment including digitally interactive whiteboards, exceptional course materials and a fresh, modern school design.

EF Taiyuan offers a selection of courses across all levels and abilities, with a focus on young learners. All prospective students are given a personal placement test by one of our academic staff to assess their English ability, and then course consultants help the customer choose the right course for them.

Taiyuan – The city
Situated on the northern banks of the Yellow River, Taiyuan is the capital of Shanxi Province. The city has a long history that dates back more than 2500 years and it originally served as an important military position in north-central China. Without many foreigners or tourists, Taiyuan gives teachers a chance to experience an authentic China that they can’t get in big cities like Shanghai or Beijing.
