Full-time Zibo Aston English

at Jordan Hung in Zibo, Shandong


First it is important to introduce ourselves. We are three foreigners, Kit from the UK (26), Ben from Canada (25), and Jordan (24) from the US. Together we have set up several of our own English training schools here in Eastern China. We franchised one of the largest English teaching companies in China: Aston English. One of the main advantages of working in one of our schools will be that you will be working directly for foreigners. We understand you, we went through what you are going through now, and about to go through, only a few years ago. Our attitude in running our schools has always been for quality and enjoyment at all times, we know what makes things work: both for you as our teachers and for our students.

The first school was set up in Zibo in 2007, and already has over 1200 students. The second school was set up in July 2011 in Binzhou, and already has over 280 students so we are now looking for our first teachers. The third school was established in July 2012 in Zouping, and already has over 150 students and so we are now looking for our first foreign teachers. The schools are all well decorated and maintained. The local teachers are all well trained and good English speakers, who are really looking forward to meeting you. Training, lesson aids, and all the things you need to do your job will be provided.


The salary is from 6000-9000 RMB a month based on experience. This includes two weeks paid holiday on top of Chinese national holidays. Teachers can choose between provided housing or a monthly housing allowance added to their salary. There is also a completion bonus for a 1 year contract.


You'll be joining the us and our other foreign teachers in teaching four to fifteen year olds in the school on weekends and week day nights, and you may also be required to do a small amount of kindergarten teaching on week days. In every class you'll have a fully trained English speaking teacher to help and support you. All in-school classes will have a maximum of a manageable 16-18 students; making the job student focused and especially rewarding as each individual student's progress is obvious and measurable. You will be required to teach for a maximum of 20 hours a week and will have three days off. The job is hugely enjoyable and rewarding if you're willing and open minded!



Zibo, is a large city located between among the flat valley of a mountainous area of Shandong province. Zibo is a city with history and culture and is considered one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization, around 4000 to 7000 years ago. Zibo has a moderate population of foreigners, between 60-100. The city offers Western amenities including many KFCs, McDonalds, a Walmart, and several western restaurants. The weather is nice with a short spring and autumn, and quite cold winters with hot summers. The Zibo Aston school has 4 foreign teachers from Canada, America, and Ireland.


Binzhou, is a small Chinese city of 'just' half a million people. It is, we believe, a great place to come and experience real China. With few other foreigners around it's a great place to come learn the language, experience the local's hospitality and generally get a feel for life in China. The weather is decent with a short spring and autumn and quite cold winters with hot summers.


Zouping, is a large town part of Binzhou’s municipality, located an hour from Zibo and Jinan in either direction. With a population of just 220,000 people, Zouping is the 30th most affluent large town within China. Situated in a mountainous region, the blue ridges of the nearby mountain range can be viewed from town. The local mountains including Heban Shan, Xue Hua Shan, and Baiyun Shan are within a 10 minute drive from the town center, and provide a relaxing retreat with fresh air and picturesque scenery. Although quite developed, Zouping can be considered as the true “Wild West” of China. It is still behind the times and is the opposite of a Beijing or Shanghai. Life is slow paced and living here you will feel a sense of belonging to the community. The locals will stare with a smile in fascination or welcome you with open arms. Foreigners are very few- a total of 4. If you are seeking a quaint town with a slower pace of life, beautiful scenery, and a fast track to improving your Mandarin then Zouping is the place to be.

The job and your life here will be challenging, enjoyable, different, memorable and rewarding. We look forward to hearing from you!

Kit, Ben, and Jordan
