Complete your TEFL qualification and gain lots of teaching experience at English Excel! Over a two month period, you’ll live and work in Hong Kong teaching a variety of courses to a variety of ages – and you’ll be paid! Join our community of teachers for a unforgettable summer, and where we have the availability, a year-long teaching contract come September!
Our summer programmes will run for 7 weeks between the 16th of July and 1st of September.
We would require all ‘trainees’ begin on Monday the 9th of July so they can undergo some training and observations in advance of teaching independently.
You’ll be paid $20,000 HKD (UK £1,811 approx / US $2,548 approx) per month pro rata. It’ll be a 5 day working week, meaning plenty of time to explore the city in your own time!
We can offer accommodation (at a subsidized rate) where we have space, and in the event we can’t, we can put in-coming trainees in touch with existing staff members who can help point them in the right direction to find their own.
In addition to a line manager who’ll carry out training and do observations, we can assign a mentor who can offer support and guidance throughout the summer and take on a more pastoral role to help trainees settle/explore Hong Kong.

During the summer period, in addition to our regular classes, we offer a variety of specialized courses to our students. We have drama, speaking, cooking, writing & grammar, interview prep courses, pre-nursery, as well as themed regular classes which include activities such as arts and crafts and outings!
All of our courses are prepared in advance of summer and come with detailed teaching notes, making them super simple and straight-forward for new teachers to follow.
Our classes always have a maximum number of 4 students, meaning you can really get to know your students, and making this a gentle way to begin your teaching career!
As we teach from 3 – 16, you’ll be sure to get good experience across these different age groups too.
As long as the 120hr qualification has been completed in advance, we can assist with getting a temporary working visa.
