Your school is located in a great part of Luoyang and you’ll be teaching an amazing age! Primary-aged kids are full of so much energy and are always excited to see you. Don’t be surprised if you ever get ambushed by 30 kids trying to hug you!
No. 2 Foreign Language Primary School
Located in Luoyang, Henan (The red dot on the map!)
Teaching at No. 2 FLPS
You’ll be teaching 1st to 5th-graders; teaching around 17 classes a week. The exact grades you’ll be teaching will vary based on how many teachers we have at the school during your semester. Don’t worry, you’ll have a teacher in there to help supervise because the kids can get pretty rambunctious (they’re so excited to see you)! Your school also gives you a book to teach from, but you have a lot of freedom to teach the material how ever you want; it’s more of a book showing what subject they are learning at the moment and your class will be a good companion to what they learn in their other English classes. You have a great liaison that is really fun!
The school has a pretty big black top where the kids spend a good amount of time doing exercises:
What a Daily Schedule at No. 2 will look like:
Each day will be different from each other, but each week will follow the same schedule. You’ll have a combinations of classes in the mornings and in the afternoons. The lunch/nap break is from 11:30am-2:00pm every day, so you’ll definitely be able to leave campus to go hang out with teachers or explore Luoyang for a few hours.
Your apartment . . . Home sweet home!
The foreigner teachers all live in the same building, but with separate apartments (unless you’re married, then don’t worry, you’ll live together). You have a pretty spacious apartment with a bathroom, kitchen area that’s attached to the back of the living room area, and a bedroom with a queen-sized bed. You also have pretty sweet 70s-looking couches.
You’ll have an ethernet cord for internet use.
Teaching kindergarten in China is really fun and full of experiences you will remember for the rest of your life. It isn’t always easy, but it’s complete worth it.
