Web International English

About the employer


Web International English is one of China's most recognized and respected brands. Since its inception in 1998, Web has gone on to establish over 120 training centers throughout China and now stands at the forefront of the language training industry.

We believe in making a difference. Web International English stands for quality and innovation in education. Because of this, we draw talented people to work at Web and we continually invest in the use of technology to stay ahead of the curve. We deliver high-quality service by empowering students to achieve communicative excellence in English, helping them function effectively in a globalized world.

Our Teaching Philosophy

Language is a skill, similar to learning to drive or play a sport. Therefore, it must be acquired through practice. It cannot be learned by passively sitting through grammar lectures given by a teacher.
Small class sizes, which allow students to receive maximum attention from the teachers.
CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) attempts to mirror the first language learning experience as closely as possible with an emphasis on listening and speaking.
Flexible class schedules for students. Students can mould their studying around their work or school lives.

Our Teaching

Most Web students start at Web with some English ability, with their reading and writing skills better than their listening and speaking. They are often especially lacking confidence and fluency, so it is our job to create a learning environment which is as positive and supportive as possible. We also want to create the closest thing we can to an English immersion environment, so we don’t allow Chinese to be spoken in the classroom.

The working week is 40 hours, which includes teaching 25 teaching hours. Classes are mostly small in size and have teaching materials prepared for you. Office duties are minimal; we don’t spend time correcting tests or homework or doing much lesson planning in the office. All Private and Salon Classes have lesson plans already made for them, which makes it easier to prepare – teachers just have to review the lesson plan before class and review any vocabulary or grammar structures they are not familiar with. Preparation for a Social Club may take a bit of time, however, especially if it’s a topic of the teacher’s choosing and he or she needs to create the lesson plan and material. Occasionally another member of our staff will need a teacher to perform a level test for a student, or a student will need a teacher to correct grammar of a presentation they’re preparing for presentation class.
