Life at MAX Education in Yinchuan
Teaching in China is a rewarding experience: from watching your students grow and learn to living and travelling in a foreign country. At MAX Education you won’t only have a wonderful time working abroad, but you’ll also have a well-paying job, training, a legal work visa, help settling in and career advancement opportunities.
Moving abroad can be scary, especially moving to a country as large and as diverse as China, but it won’t be with MAX Education. We will guide you through the visa process, coming to China, settling in to your new home, and helping you make new friends foreign and local.

Teaching at MAX
Teaching at MAX
At MAX Education you will be the only teacher for your class and because of this and the small class sizes (up to nine) you and your students will have time to develop a relationship. We believe in creating an immersive English teaching environment where students not only learn English, but learn how to use English.
At MAX Education we have three different types of students: pre-school (4-6), elementary (7-12), and adult. For our youngest students we only teach speaking and listening. These classes are the most active with lots of games and activities to give our youngest learners the time and repetition they need to learn new words and sentences. Elementary school aged children have a more traditional and comprehensive curriculum which includes reading, writing, listening and speaking. The adult students are fewer in number and classes vary in difficulty from basic travel English to adults looking to go work or live abroad.
Life in Yinchuan
Yinchuan is the capital of Ningxia Province and at only 2 million people it is small by Chinese standards. Yinchuan is in northwest China about 14 hours north of Xi’an by train. The city is between the Yellow River to the east and the Helanshan mountains to the west. The region is very arid and if it weren’t for the irrigation from the Yellow River it would be a desert.
Cuisine: the local food is relatively spicy and has lots of meat and noodles. Because of the large Muslim population there is lots mutton and beef, but pork can still be found. In summer time kebab restaurants spring up on nearly every street, but in winter time people can warm up with a bowl of hot, soupy noodles.
Climate: it’s dry. Summers are dry, sunny, and, unlike southern China, not too hot. Falls can be short or linger on into December. Winter is cold and nearly snowless. Spring is windy and quick.
