Details of Position
Premium Language Centre is one of the oldest language schools in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

To plan, prepare and teach lessons to various levels/students of different backgrounds.
To be willing to plan and prepare every lesson using PowerPoint slides. Students are not allowed to use their books in the class and everything has to be changed into communicative activities, games and pair/group work (this can be a lot of work for new teachers. Please consider this carefully. We DO NOT allow straight teaching from the textbook).
To teach a standard number of 5 contact hours/day - 25 contact hours/week.
To administer, mark and upload test scores to our LMS.
