Shijiazhuang: London English School

We have just opened a Language School in Hebei’s capital city: Shijiazhuang. This brand-new school boasts modern teaching facilities with interactive whiteboards, and teaching assistants to help with all your classes. The school provides classes to a range of learners, from pre-school to adults. We provide our own language courses with everything a teacher will need: student books, teacher books, homework and workbooks, flashcards, on-line learning materials, audio and video content, and arts and crafts materials.

This position would suit someone who wants to save money but also wants the conveniences of a large city, without the hustle and bustle and higher living costs of places like Beijing.

What about the location?
Just over an hour train journey from Beijing; Shijiazhuang is the capital of Hebei Province. It has everything you would expect of a modern city, like cafes, bars, gyms, parks, western restaurants etc., but it is a considerably cheaper place to live, when compared to neighbouring city Beijing.

The expat population is smaller than Beijing but still present and vibrant. The train station is very close by and can take you quickly to other locations on your days off.
