We are a team of engaging and experienced teachers who love teaching Chinese language and culture. As demand for Chinese grows, we are always looking for teachers to fill new roles.

As a Dragons teacher, your goal is to make Chinese fun and exciting for your students. We ensure our teachers excel by providing an in-house training program which focuses on student engagement. With a team of over 60 teachers and a dedicated office with more than 10 years of experience, you will be continually supported as you meet your next teaching challenge.

What you can do with Dragons

After School Chinese

The ‘Chinese Dragons Club’, launched in 2018, is a carousel of Chinese cultural activities offered to all primary ages. The club runs weekly after-school allowing students to participate in various cultural activities and to learn basic Chinese.

We are currently looking for more teachers to run these fantastic clubs!

What’s it like to work at Dragons?

I have really enjoyed working at Dragons. The professional textbooks match up with the online games and homework are really helpful to foreign learners. The Kungfu Kingdom games from Dragons are really helpful and fun. Students can learn the tones through the Testy tones game and also get familiar with characters through Character Chaos and Stroke of Genius. All the staff are nice and kind. I can get help very soon whether it is a teaching query or another question.


Chinese Teacher

Dragons is comprised of a very friendly and helpful group of people who have been supportive throughout this process, and who have given me the freedom to teach in the way I see fit, whilst also providing support and resources for me to use when I need.

I love teaching and learning Chinese, and I am very happy to be teaching Chinese at a time in which people outside China are starting to realise what a brilliant, beautiful, and potentially useful language it is!

The MCTC scheme gave me a lot of ideas; as students we also learned a lot from each other. Also, it was useful to learn about new technology for teaching. Dragons provide a lot of resources for teaching, and of course the scheme itself. There is plenty of room for teachers to include their own ideas as well during the teaching sessions.
