Overall the Teach English Internship program will last 22 weeks and consists out of two separate parts, the preparation month and the teach English internship. Four weeks of Chinese class at our school in Beijing or Shanghai will be followed by teaching for 18 weeks at a local Chinese English language school which we will place you at.

The Preparation Month (4 wks)

You will have ample opportunity to enhance your Chinese language skills with LTL in a small group class.

Our Chinese classes average less than three people and never exceed more than six people. This gives you plenty of chance to speak and have your say in a class, rather than a big lecture hall.

Our teachers are fully certified and hold at least 5 years experience. They are hugely popular with our students and have the ability to improve your skills at a rate of knots. You can choose to spend your preparation month in either Beijing or Shanghai.

The Teach English Internship (18 wks)

After a month of intensive language study it’ll be your turn to become the teacher. You will enjoy 18 weeks teaching the future of China. You will receive a 2,000RMB per month stipend whilst you are based in China and meals will be provided every working day. Transport from Beijing or Shanghai to the city your school is located in is already included.
