Applicants must also possess three to five years of experience in teaching English.

In addition, applicants are required to be culturally aware and passionate about sharing the Jamaican culture with others, be able to function and adapt to the Chinese culture, as well as possess excellent presentation, oral and written communication skills.

Candidates for the English teacher jobs in China must also possess excellent analytical and problem solving skills, have good interpersonal and people-management skills, and a willingness to learn Mandarin.
