First Leap Zhengzhou caters to young learners ages 3-12 years old. ESL teachers are responsible for preparing for and teaching classes based on the lesson plan and curriculum materials provided, attending academic department meetings and taking part in training workshops. 

Our curriculum includes 9 different subjects taught through the medium of English. Our local teachers teach Language Arts, and our international ESL teachers cover Art, Music, Global Leadership, Reading, World Culture, Science, Logical Thinking, Virtual PE and Drama. 

Each lesson has a comprehensive teacher pack with all the necessary resources and materials, and each international teacher class has a local teacher therein to assist as and when needed. 

A standard workweek for our ESL teachers consists of 36 total hours, from Wednesday to Sunday, with two consecutive off days (Monday and Tuesday). The weekly working hours include a maximum of 20 teaching hours and 16 office hours per week for preparation, training and meetings. Working hours are typically from 14:30 - 20:30 from Wednesdays to Fridays, and from 9:00 - 19:30 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Each of our classrooms is equipped with a teacher's desk and computer, a projector, an interactive whiteboard, tables, chairs, a regular whiteboard and pinboards. Our teachers' offices are also equipped with desks, computers and cupboards filled with resources and materials. Each office also has a fridge, printer, microwave, laminators and everything needed to help the team prepare for classes. Our schools also have a lounge and a student library in the foyer. Each school is located inside or nearby large shopping centres filled with restaurants, coffee and tea shops, activities and retail outlets. 

If you have a passion for education and are interested in working with young learners but have little experience in ESL teaching, don't worry - our curriculum and training program are designed to help new ESL teachers familiarise quickly, prepare engaging classes and cultivate their teaching ability! 

First Leap Zhengzhou is not only an educational institution but also a company that focuses on encouraging and developing the self-confidence of our teachers and students by creating an environment where learning is fun, engaging and nurtures a passion for development and growth.
