Vast numbers of people are currently learning english in schools, universities and language academies in all corners of China. This ever increasing thirst for the language means there is a huge demand for new teachers in virtually every town and city. Due to this extraordinary demand, China is now the most popular destination for EFL teachers and TEFL training courses anywhere in the world. The city of Zhuhai is a particularly good choice of location as it is situated on the southern coast where it enjoys a good climate, long sandy beaches and great transport links to some of the most visited attractions in the region.
Zhuhai has won many awards for the beauty of its surrounding natural environment and its high living standards. In fact the chinese Riviera, as the area is known, is far removed from the large industrial cities that are found in many parts of the country. Here you can spend your free time exploring the long, spectacular coastline and the 146 fascinating islands that lie off the shore. You also won't want to miss the excitement of visiting Hong Kong and Macao where you can enjoy great shopping, delicious food and a vibrant nightlife. Whether you choose Zhuhai because of its countless job opportunities or simply to experience one of the world's most fascinating cultures, our TEFL certification course in Zhuhai is guaranteed to be a great experience.
Zhuhai can best be described as having a subtropical climate with plenty of hot sunny days. 90% of annual rainfall happens in the months of May to October, whilst January and February are the coldest months averaging 14 degrees Celsius. The temperature gets progressively warmer from April onwards, reaching a maximum of 28 degrees Celsius from May through to September.
Our training facility in the city of Zhuhai is both modern and well equipped with all the resources you will need to comfortably complete your TEFL certification course. The center also has spacious classrooms where you can practice your teaching skills with genuine English language learners in a comfortable and professional environment. These practice sessions provide the perfect preparation for your first teaching job and are conducted with the support and assistance of our highly experienced teacher trainers.
Our Zhuhai TEFL training center is happy to offer trainees a unique opportunity to further interact with the local community and learn more about the Chinese culture. The center regularly operates a Discussion Corner in the evenings for local adult students led by one of our trainees. This voluntary option is available to all trainees and in return for leading one session per week we will provide you with three free meals a day. The school also has a small snack shop onsite and you will find plenty of local shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
We do offer a fun extra option to our students in Zhuhai, which is to have your meals at school three times a day on the basis that you lead a Discussion Corner one evening during the week for local adult students. This option is not compulsory but does afford you yet another opportunity to meet the local people and experience the Chinese culture.
One of the many benefits of our Zhuhai TEFL training center is the relatively low cost of living means that we can arrange clean and comfortable accommodation at a very reasonable rate. Our standard accommodation generally consists of a private room in an apartment shared with fellow trainees on your course. Each room is air-conditioned in the summer months and comes with adequate furnishings, whilst the living areas such as kitchen and bathroom are shared with your housemates. The apartments are equipped with everything you should need during your stay such as washing machine, refrigerator and a basic cleaning service.
The apartments are located close to a variety of local amenities including shops and markets where you can stock up on groceries. They are also within easy reach of entertainment areas where you can unwind in your free time in a wide range of cafés, bars and restaurants. Our recommended apartments are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and numbers are limited so we suggest you book as early as possible.Apply Now!

What is the course schedule?Expand
Normally all the classes are scheduled from 8:50 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. during weekdays, however, we do observe the many Chinese national holidays, which means we sometimes have to work over the weekend to make up for these days off. Trainees will be scheduled for observed teaching practice on or off site depending on students’ circumstances. Chinese students are usually very well behaved in the classroom and are interested and excited about learning English with a foreigner. Class sizes range from 10 to 25. Trainees will teach lessons of 30 to 50 minutes according to the student’s timetable.
What can I expect during teaching practice?Expand
We offer English classes for Chinese students who are interested in improving their English language abilities. Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.
Who usually attends the course?Expand
We average groups of six to ten trainees. Most of the participants are American, British, Canadian or Australian, although we do accept non-native speakers of English who have a high proficiency in the language.
Is there a dress code?Expand
For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.
During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:
Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.
Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.
What should I bring for course studies?Expand
Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop but this is not essential.
