Real English Academy

Real English Academy

Established in 2012, we are the first and only dedicated native teacher-based English training school in Zhanjiang, and have just opened our second campus in downtown Zhanjiang. We are a joint Sino-US private language academy, specializing in education for students of all ages, from age 4 to adults. We would love for you to join us.

We are currently looking for teachers available for an immediate start date. As a licensed and registered English language academy, we have permission to offer legal residence permits, work visas and Foreign Expert Certificates to our teachers. All of our teachers are thus legally entitled to work and live in China.

Zhanjiang Real English Academy follows the philosophy that global communication in the modern era requires knowledge of English. We believe that providing an immersive language environment not only provides the best means of acquiring the ability to communicate in English but also ensures speakers acquire native accents and grammatical knowledge. Accordingly, we do not use Chinese assistants in the classroom. Each teacher is encouraged to develop their own teaching methodology, one that best suits their personality.

English teaching is a skill, one which needs to be honed over time. At Real English Academy, we strive to build professional skills and confidence in our teaching staff. Through regular meetings with management and ongoing training opportunities, our teachers gain new ideas to integrate into their lessons and improve their classroom and time management skills. For teachers interested in longer term professional development, both senior teacher and management track options are available.

Courses: English for young learners (age 3-5), primary school English (age 6-9), intermediate school English (age 10-12), middle and high school English, and practical English for adults.

Concerning Zhanjiang:

Zhanjiang lies at the southernmost tip of the Chinese mainland, located between tropical 
Hainan Island and the economic powerhouse of the Pearl River Delta. Zhanjiang is famous throughout China for its seafood – the freshest available, fruits, and year-round mild sub-tropical climate. From 1898 to 1946, Zhanjiang (then Fort Bayard) was the administrative seat of the French colony of Guangzhouwan. Adopting a Mediterranean lifestyle, eating and drinking on verandas overlooking the bay is a way of life! Seafood is fresh, fabulous and ubiquitous. Come and experience a new life in China at the Real English Academy! The city and beaches are waiting for you! 
Nearby Tourist Attractions include:

Chikan – colonial architecture from the French period
Zhanjiang Offshore Islands – local beaches and resorts
Beihai – China’s winter playground and burgeoning beach resort
Kaiping – UNESCO World Heritage Site with 19th and 20th century castles known as Diaolou 
Luofu Mountain Scenic Area – One of the 10 sacred mountains in Chinese Taoism
Seven Star Crags – Rocky outcrops rising abruptly from a placid lake in Zhaoqing City
Danxia Mountain – A UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site

We look forward to hearing from you and continuing the recruitment process. At any point, please feel free to email me directly with any concerns or questions you may have. We strive to be completely transparent throughout the recruitment and employment process.
