Reference No. ZJ1TH09A
EF English First, Zhangjiagang is now accepting applications from qualified English teachers looking to expand their horizons and teach at a leading language school in China. If you strive for excellence and enjoy delivering engaging English classes then you will fit right in. Our high academic standards, plentiful resources and outstanding staff are what make us the leading school in the city.
Our school first opened its doors in 2002 and ever since has grown from strength to strength. We started off with 4 foreign teachers and 9 local staff, now with a total staff of almost 40. We were one of the first English First schools to open in China. With the backing of over 40 years of experience and support from its parent company it’s no wonder English First Zhangjiagang continues to be seen as the number one place for language learning in the city of Zhangjiagang. We have a dedication to the highest academic quality achieved through on-going teacher training.
At the EF National Conference in 2009 we won the award for best growth. We’ve recently moved to a new state-of the art multimedia school, with touch screen interactive whiteboards in every classroom, a “cookery-classroom,” as well as EF’s Life Club Zone, which has a newly designed stage and Dance Dance Revolution style mats.
