Jingzhou is a medium-size city of about 1 million people. It is the ideal city if you want a more authentic China experience. There are very few foreigners and the culture is less westernized that many big cities. The cost of living is also considerable cheaper than many large cities in China.

One more comment (coming from the current foreign teacher): I highly recommend a public high school over the private training centers or language schools. I know from experience that the private schools are often mainly concerned about profits, not helping the students. In addition, private schools sometimes do not have permission to hire foreign teachers and may have to undertake unethical or illegal measures to have a foreign teacher. This is not an issue with a public school. Therefore, I would strongly recommend a public school for your China teaching experience.

If you are interested in this position or have any questions, please contact Katy (the current foreign teacher) at shashimiddleschoolgmail.com. Please attach your resume, a copy of your degree and a recent photo or passport photo page.
