 What do you do:

Teach English in Language schools, kid gardens or primary schools for 1-12 year old children, occasionally you will help the school to organize some educational activities.  We expect you to teach 12-16 hours a week during your stay. You will have assistance from the school you are teaching or from our staff at iGoToChina. We have seen some people have done great work teaching at different projects and have made a great impact to the children’s lives. We believe that participates in our program can do the same impact. No teaching experience is needed. The level of English of the children is mostly basic. The main requirements needed are flexibility, enthusiasm and a willingness to help.
