Our interviews are super casual so there is no need to be worried or nervous beforehand! It is a chance for you to meet someone from the school you will be working for, as well as understand what is involved with teaching English in Dalian and what to expect when living in China. You’ll probably have lots of questions and this is your chance to ask them!
It is also common for schools to schedule a second-round interview with a current or previous English teacher so you can gain a better picture of life in China from a newly recruited teacher’s perspective.
Remember we said our interviews are super casual? That means there is no need to dress up too formally. When teaching English you’ll want your students to have a great time and feel welcome. It’s ok to wear a t-shirt and jeans in the classroom.
You may like to give some thought to how you’ll answer questions like:
- Why do you want to teach English in China?
- What kind of a teacher would you like to be?
- What would you like to do while you are in China?
- Have you ever taught/mentored someone on how to do something new?
- Have you worked with children before?
Don’t worry if you haven’t got any teaching experience or qualifications. English schools all offer training and assistance to new recruits and we can recommend a training course if required.
The main thing to remember is to relax and enjoy your interview! We are looking for friendly, cheerful and enthusiastic people to welcome into our team. If that’s you, we are excited to meet you!
