Beijing is a lively and amazing city and although you may be struck by an initial culture shock, this will shortly turn into utter fascination and captivation! The other certainties to expect for when you’re teaching in Beijing are ones that the foreign teaching community at Aidi School can personally vouch for!

 

1) You will be overwhelmed by Beijing

And by overwhelmed it is meant in every sense of the word! Alongside some of the best schools and career progression for the teachers who work in them, Beijing is bursting with thought-provoking culture; both compelling traditional and striking modern architecture; amazing food at every corner, and more! We at Aidi School are genuinely keen for our foreign teachers to immerse themselves into Beijing, so we organise events and tours for them to properly experience the city on their days off. This means that you get to see the city in the best way possible, and learn first-hand how to master the city like a local!

 

2) You will fall in love with the kids you teach

As amazing as all the sightseeing is, the most fulfilling part of working in Beijing is teaching students who are so eager to learn. At Aidi School, a strong work ethic and a passion for learning are second nature to the students. There is a real culture of perseverance that you simply don't get in other countries, which mean that Aidi School students strive for excellence – and this is wholeheartedly encouraged and nurtured by Aidi School. As a result, you as a foreign teacher are tasked with teaching student who love being there and naturally, you will love them being there too!

 

3) You’ll advance further in your teaching career than you expected

As mentioned in the 2nd point, you’re really dealing with the best when it comes to schools like Aidi School. Teaching in foreign schools like Aidi School gives you genuine responsibility, so from almost day one, you’re in charge of lesson plans and you get to make your lessons as stimulating and challenging as possible in order to really get the most out of the students. You’d be surprised how little other schools expect of their teachers, but Aidi School is committed to bettering its students AND its foreign teachers. If your skills also lie in the extracurricular, you can organise sports classes and workshops for the students and share your expertise and passions with the next generation! As if that’s not enough, we offer the opportunity to take part in amazing training opportunities in a range of employability-boosting programs for free. Just think of all that on your CV!

 

4) You’ll be surprised by the hospitality you’re offered

As soon as you step foot in Beijing, hospitality (and humidity, it is Summer after all!) is in the air. Although you may not speak the same language, it’s easy to understand that the locals genuinely care and want to help you at any point you need it. It’s no different with Aidi School who treat the foreign teaching community like extended family. And not just in a ‘sentimental’ way either. At Aidi School, we will do whatever we can to help you out in your highs and your lows, whether it's a wedding gift to celebrate your marriage, or financial help when money should be the last thing on your mind.

 

5) You will catch the travel bug

No matter where you live in the world, you will definitely benefit from the proximity to other exciting cities and countries that living in Beijing gives you. Travelling around China to amazing sites like the Great Wall near Beijing, to explore cities like Shanghai or Xi’an, or other nearby countries become more accessible and tangible options, and of course cheaper than from your home country. And if that’s not for you, you can always make your way back home during the lengthy school holiday. Either way, you’ll be raring to come back to Beijing for the next school year to begin!
