Beijing Public School Programme

Explore one of the most exciting and ever-changing cities in the world.

Wander through the Forbidden City and walk on the Great Wall; experience Beijing’s bar scene and taste authentic Chinese cuisine; scout street markets for hidden treasures or shop for high-end brands in the largest mall in Asia – Beijing offers endless opportunities for gap year students, career teachers, and anyone seeking a new adventure.

With around one month’s holiday in winter and 1-2 months’ summer holiday, teaching in a Beijing public school leaves ample time for travelling and provides an attractive salary on which do so.

Your priority will be inspiring your students to love English – so your classes will mainly consist of playing games, singing songs and reading stories. Your whole class will be taught in English, though you will have a Chinese teaching assistant with you to help with classroom management and give translations where necessary.
