May. 31, 2013
The Ameson Education and Cultural Exchange Foundation is a non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to the promotion and implementation of education exchanges in China and abroad. Ameson Foundation maintains offices in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, and in Washington, DC as well.
Skills and Duties:
The Ameson Year in China program is for recent college graduates and other qualified applicants seeking to expand their horizons and develop a global vision using their natural asset – English. In exchange for teaching English as a contribution to Chinese students for an academic year, the AYC is designed to give participants the chance to gain a deep understanding of Chinese culture, learn one of the world's most in-demand languages, enhance their professional development, gain professional experience, and improve future employment prospects in the U.S. and around the world.
The program also provides opportunities to conduct independent projects of personal significance and establish a personal business or academic network in China, which can all be invaluable assets for a future career. Working commitments consist of about 25 hours of educational activities per week. The fully standardized curriculum, along with teaching materials and support, gives participants plenty of time to practice their Chinese, conduct research, or explore their surroundings.
What you learn in China can be a launching point for an international career, or can enhance academic and professional opportunities in the United States. However, it is the personal development that may be the most valuable outcome of this program. Living and working in another country pushes you to confront your own assumptions and view the world from another perspective. See what the world has to offer with the Ameson Year in China.
Hours: 25 hours/week
