Giraffe English

Our language school is now looking for dynamic, creative and passionate English teachers to join our close-knit teaching team. Teach young learners aged 3 to 12 years old in the vibrant metropolis of Shanghai, China.

Our schools teach students 3 to 12 years old, and given the age of our students, our mission extends beyond teaching English. We believe that we must not only be effective teachers of English, but work to help create an environment where students can work and learn collaboratively.

Our young learners focus on speaking and as the students’ progress into different levels, they are introduced to reading and writing. Our courses are designed to cater to each students needs as well as establish confidence in their English speaking ability.

Speak Up is an advanced level course for students that are looking to challenge themselves and their ability to think critically. We currently have two courses that we are offering through Speak Up- Drama and Public Speaking. Each course is specially designed to allow our students to not only work on their English speaking ability, but also learn specialized and valuable skills that we hope will aid them for their academic future.
