Teach English online

With eager students and easy-to-use lessons at various levels, you’ll love teaching English online. As a teacher, you will use online presentations, cameras, microphones, and Adobe tools to help your students practice real world English. Online classes could be private, one to one classes, or group sessions. You will be required to prepare for each class before you teach English online, and give live feedback to your students. After class, you will then assist your students further offering post-lesson feedback.
EF has also designed a unique online platform that allows teachers and students from all over China to connect and learn. EF aims to use online platforms to help meet the future demands of both English teachers and English language learners, in a bid to open the world through education. Teaching English online with EF is a great way to be at the forefront of online language learning and enjoy a rewarding job overseas.


When you apply to teach English online with EF English First, not only will you be applying for a new job, but you will also be applying for a new job teaching in one of the world’s most exciting cities. EF’s online language centre is located in Pudong, one of Shanghai’s busiest and most prosperous districts.
From your office window, you will have a spectacular view of Pudong’s iconic skyline, including the Shanghai World Financial Center (“the bottle opener”) and Shanghai Tower (one of the world’s tallest buildings). There will be no view quite like the one you’ll see when you start to teach English online in Shanghai.


EF English First’s online centre is a dynamic multicultural environment full of people from around the world. In recent years the centre has developed a one of a kind culture based around development and teamwork. The online teaching team will do their best to make sure you feel right at home, and this is something you will see as soon as you arrive in Shanghai to teach English online.
On your first day, you will be greeted by the whole team and assigned a mentor to show you the ropes and help you get settled in. Before you actually start to teach English online, you’ll also be given a development plan to help you get to grips with online English teaching and master the technology. Within no time, you’ll be teaching regular classes and attending weekly and monthly social events both in centre and citywide. Teaching English online is a great way to work, travel and explore.

The best part about online learning for the students is that they can either choose a prepared lesson, or they can make a custom request on a topic that might be relevant to their work or studies. With students representing a wide range of professions and degree programs, the possibilities for lessons are endless. I enjoy online English teaching because it offers new challenges and rewards every day.
