• Teaching in China Program – TELC (Teaching English while Learning Chinese)

    AASCU, in collaboration with SEF International, a Virginia based organization with its main focus in international education, and the Shanghai Pacican Academy, are now recruiting recent graduates to teach English and learn Chinese (TELC) in Shanghai, China.

    The TELC program is a paid, full-time ESL job opportunity designed for college graduates and language teachers interested in the Chinese language and its culture. TELC teaching consists mainly of Oral English, with one-year commitment (renewable). Participants teach English as a second language in the Shanghai school system (K-12) and are given free Chinese (Mandarin) lessons once every week with some weekend cultural activities/tours throughout their stay in China.

    TELC is offered by Shanghai Pacican Academy (Pacican) which is also the Shanghai branch of the China Center for International Education Exchange (CCIEE) under the Ministry of Education of China. Cooperating with Shanghai Municipality and the District Education Commissions, TELC, which will eventually cover more than 400 public schools in Shanghai, not only benefits tens thousands of students with their spoken English skills, but also exerts positive influence on the Chinese teachers’ teaching methods, evaluation skills, and class performance.

    Besides TELC's competitive salary, free Chinese lessons, and work insurance, other benefits include intensive orientation and job training, reimbursement of airfare other fees, after the completion of the contract, end of year bonus and commuter allowance, assistance from bi-lingual coordinators who are on duty 24/7, generous vacation time with allowance, free airport pickup, assistance in finding housing, and many more.

    Minimum requirements are: a bachelor's degree in any major; a native speaker of English; two years of teaching experience or a TESOL/TEFL certificate (120-hour minimum, to be completed by the end of May). Chinese language skills are preferred but not required.
