A fully funded TEFL internship

**Applications now closed for summer 2018 – sign up to the mailing list to hear about future camps**

Spend 5 weeks as an intern teaching English to kids at summer camps in Beijing. Not only will you gain valuable work experience, you’ll also earn a 120 hour TEFL certificate – which you can use to apply for full time English teaching positions in the future!

Unlike other TEFL internships, Camp China is fully funded (including flight reimbursement). Please note, this camp is run directly by Camford Royal School – Travel Boost is simply assisting with marketing, recruitment and training. During your internship, in-country support will be provided directly by a bilingual manager at the school.

Teach

  • You’ll work on three 10 day camps at Camford Royal School, Beijing
  • Spend around 5 hours a day teaching English classes to students aged 6 – 16.
  • Join in or run afternoon activity sessions – we’ve had everything from football and tug-of-war to quidditch and water fights!
  • Participate in evening events such as singing, dancing or drama competitions, film nights and parties.
  • Pre-departure online TEFL training and online lesson plan resources to support you during your internship.

Learn

  • Cultural activities: experience traditional Chinese painting, a tea ceremony, calligraphy or KTV (karaoke) – usually one activity per 10 day camp (see examples below).
  • Chinese language practice: you’ll have plenty of opportunities to pick up and practice some Mandarin – from ordering food in the canteen to exploring local markets.
  • TEFL training: online pre-departure 70 hours TEFL course combined with your 50 hours teaching internship to give a 120 hours TEFL certificate.

Travel

  • Free trips to local sights: visit the Great Wall, a local temple or the Forbidden City – usually one mini trip per 10 day camp (see examples below).
  • Up to one month remaining on your visa to travel around China afterwards.
  • Large group of interns from all over the world, the perfect opportunity to meet new travel buddies!
