The city of Shenyang has an extremely low cost of living (especially when compared to Beijing, Shanghai, or southern China) so it is very easy to save a lot of your salary for traveling, sending home, or building savings. It is easy to live well on half your salary or less, leaving the rest for travel, fun, or savings.
Shenyang is ideally situated. There are lots of great things to see and do here, but it's only 4 hours by CRH train to either the bustling city of Beijing or the 'winter' city of Harbin. A slightly shorter train journey will see you in the beautiful seaside city of Dalian.
Joy is a private school and classes are held on weekday afternoons and evenings, and weekends. Because of this schedule there is a lot of free time during the week. It’s a great opportunity for those of you who have hobbies, like to experience new things or just enjoy relaxing but have never had the time.
All candidates should be responsible, hard-working, energetic, creative, and fun-loving to teach English to children aged five to 12. Full training is provided but you must have the ability to take the information you’ve learned and apply it in your own classes. Candidates should have a cover letter, resume, a college degree, TESOL/TEFL certificate and experience is preferred but not necessary.
