Volunteers needed to teach conversational English in the local schools in and around Yantai. Placement are available in kindergartens, primary schools, high schools and colleges throughout the city. Teacher assistants are supported by the local teacher, and will focus on language comprehension and speaking. The teachers and students are eager to learn English, so volunteers are very welcome at the schools.

Class sizes vary from 20-30 students per class. Volunteers assist the local (bi-lingual) teacher, and will be provided guidance and instructions. The classes are Monday –Friday and volunteers should be prepared to teach 20-25 hours per week (3-4 classes a day). Volunteers are teaching conversation English, using songs, books, teaching aids and any other ideas that you can come up with. *Limited arrivals in May and October due to National holidays.
