About the School

Make a move to teach English in beautiful China in a well established, successful school. For over ten years, the Oumeida English Training Centre has been the most successful and recognized English language training center in Manzhouli. It prides itself on providing a strong and consistent curriculum from kindergarten to grade 9. The success of the school's approach shows in the quality of the students’ language skills, particularly in higher grades. This has contributed to their success in getting accepted into good high schools and universities, with some having gone on to study abroad.

Teachers will be offered competitive compensation packages, comprehensive training arrangements, and great career development opportunities. Join an international teaching team and work alongside seven other teachers from USA, UK, and Canada!

Earn 15,000 – 18,000 RMB per month with no teaching experience. This salary will let you save quite a bit -  you only pay for the phone bill and everything else is covered (and of course prices in Inner Mongolia are a lot lower than what you're used to paying at home).
