Why Teachers Love Dalian

Dalian is a seaside city located in the North-East of China with about 6.5 million inhabitants. If China is a bit shaped like a chicken, Dalian is around the beak area. It’s generally got great air quality and it is a lively, cosmopolitan city.

Although it’s a modern city at heart, you will also find quite a few historical sites throughout the place. In its history, it has been occupied by the British, the Japanese, and also the Russians. You can find the architecture and cultural remnants of all three.

Teacher Testimonials

Jacques Academic Manager

Meet the Academic Manager Jaques

I’m from sunny South Africa and I have been working for the school for two years now. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Science majoring in Education. I’ve been teaching for 8 years and have been with the chain since I first arrived in China. I have previously taught in Saudi Arabia at an international school for six years before moving to Dalian.

My role is both teacher and manager, carrying out training with newly arrived teachers, providing support and teaching advice to new and old teachers.

The school and myself are always happy to assist new teachers coming over and welcome all prospective teachers to join the family. Being open-minded, accepting of new challenges and being young at heart is a definite must for teaching in China.
