Subject: Applied Ling: Teacher at Beijing Normal Univ.


Beijing Normal University needs a fulltime foreign teacher beginning
this September to teach "Applied Linguistics" and other courses. The
teacher would presumably need a master's degree in applied
linguistics, and would receive around 2,600 RMB/month (around $300
US), with a free apartment and a one-way air ticket supplied on the
return trip from China back to the teacher's home country. The
teaching load is probably around 12 hours per week, but this as well
as the salary would have to be confirmed.

Anyone interested should immediately contact

Hi,

I am John Chen at T & B.C. Language School in Shalu, Taichung,
Taiwan. We are looking for a native English speaker with BA degree to
be a full time teacher. If you enjoy being around children, this
position could be suitable for you.

Our school is located in the central part of Taiwan. Shalu is a nice town
which is not a metropolis. But there are many international banks,
MacDonald's and 7-11 stores in the center of town. Shalu is on the
rail line which runs to the north and south of the island.

We are a private, small and growing school that teaches children and
adults English in the afternoon and evening. Our students are from age
8-12 who study in elementary school in the morning.

There are 10-12 students in a class. Each class time is 1.5 hours.
This small class size gives the students a quality learning experience
with a lot of individual instruction. The classroom is
air-conditioned and newly finished with whiteboards, student desks and
hardwood floors.

Each desk is equipped with a headset on which students and the teacher
can listen to each other clearly. The teacher can also use the system
to listen or communicate with students. There is a TV and VCR which
can aid your lessons, as well as many textbooks, flashcards and
posters on hand that may be utilized for teachers to prepare their
curriculum. Teachers can also suggest creative ways of teaching. We
prefer the teacher become familiar with the circumstances of our
school for 2-3 days, and then we arrange for the teacher to be
trained. We need a teacher who has patience and really wants to teach
and play with children.

We do not offer air tickets but free accommodation can be provided
while teaching here. The room is upstairs in the school and is at
about 8 x 8 feet. There is a bed and a wardrobe in the the room.
Beside the room there is a bathroom with shower. There are no cooking
facilities available in the school, but you can find restaurants and
vendors close to the school that offer a variety of cheap meals. Work
permit and Mandrain lessonwould also be available.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Regards,
John Chen
