    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 energy and enthusiasm needed to be an effective young learner teacher then we would like to talk to you.

    EF Taiyuan has two schools and we are now recruiting for our larger and newer center. It was opened in June 2010 with 25 classrooms. We have been growing at an amazing rate thanks to our principles of delivering high quality, enjoyable classes to all of our students. Our school boasts 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 to students aged from 3 to 14 years old. 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. That being said, the school itself is located near the center of the city, within easy walking distance of many foreign comforts, including bars, gyms, shops and apartments.
