TEFL Beijing, China
Beijing is a huge metropolis. Stretching over nearly 20,000 miles, the estimated population, spread over eighteen districts, is thought to be over 12 million.
Beijing also doubles as China’s cultural hub. The city’s famous and lengthy history still holds influence over Beijing’s friendly locals, their rich traditions and their wonderfully delicious food.
Believe it or not, the lands surrounding Beijing have been inhabited for over 3,000 years and direct origins of the city can be tracked back over 500,000 years.
Certainly not lacking culture and history, Beijing has managed to keep sites like The Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and the Great Wall all intact both structurally and culturally. Yet moving forward and having recently hosted the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, there’s no doubting Beijing’s dominance over modern Chinese politics, culture, banking, finance and industry.
When you combine Beijing’s history and culture with TEFL International’s quality training and facilities, it’s easy to see its allure. With its size comes variety. Your days in Beijing will be filled with culture and great adventure, and your nights will be filled with world-class dining and modern entertainment hot spots. From concerts and bars, to opera and martial arts, Beijing has got something to suit your tastes.
When you combine the city’s sprit with our center’s incredibly professional and highly qualified trainers, Beijing definitely becomes a great location to begin your ESL teacher training.
Our center is located just steps away from the Beijing World Trade center. The school has spacious classrooms and all resources needed to successfully complete the course will be provided.
Computers are also available for all lesson planning and classroom preparation. We’ve worked hard to ensure you’re able to enjoy a comfortable learning environment.
The school itself is located about a 15-minute cab ride to Sanlitun Bar Area, where both foreigners and locals gather shoulder-to-shoulder and unwind.
We also offer professionally run and very affordable Mandarin language classes. They can be set up individually or in small-class format upon request.
In five years of operation, we’ve helped over 400 trainees become teachers. We work closely with local schools and language centers and are able to guarantee job placement after the course.
