English Language Institute In China (ELIC)

EstablishedProgramming Pro

Since 1981, we have served students by recruiting, training, sending, and equipping passionately committed people to live and work across Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Most serve as English teachers in universities, colleges, K-12 schools, community centers, and local teacher development programs. Teachers are warmly welcomed in many places where there is an evergrowing demand for quality English education. The comprehensive graduate-level certification and training and orientation provided to our new teachers prepare them well to succeed in the countries where we serve. Ongoing professional development is encouraged and we help teachers pursue further training and graduate studies as they serve overseas.

Our long-term and short-term teachers reach over 40,000 students, colleagues, and friends each year!
More than 12 countries across Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa have welcomed our teachers into their classrooms.
