Role Overview


Web aim to empower students to achieve communicative excellence in English, helping them function effectively in a globalized world.

Most students have better reading and writing skills than their listening and speaking. They are often especially lacking confidence and fluency, so foreign teachers create a learning environment which is as positive and supportive as possible.

Web aim to create the closest thing possible to an English immersion environment, so they don’t allow Chinese to be spoken in the classroom.

The working week is 40 hours, which includes teaching 25 teaching hours Wednesday to Sunday. Classes are mostly small in size and have teaching materials prepared for teachers. Office duties are minimal; time is not spent correcting tests, homework or doing much lesson planning in the office.

All Private (4 students) and Salon (10 students) Classes have lesson plans already made for them, aiding teacher preparation– teachers have to review the lesson plan before class and review vocabulary or grammar structures they are not familiar with.

Preparation for a Social Club involves creating your own lesson plans and materials, often on a topic of your choice.
