IVHQ presently works with Chinese public schools; most of which are located in rural areas just outside of Xi'an and serve the farmers' children and poorer people living outside the cities. In China, there is a growing demand for an English education. With the unprecedented economic growth China has experienced in recent years, the importance of English education has also grown.

Many schools in China have established an “English corner”, a specially designed spot for teaching/learning English. These schools are very eager to have native English teachers. Unfortunately, only private schools with huge budgets in city areas attract native English teachers. Most of the resource-poor schools remain hopeful for quality English teachers for their classes, with native English speakers at the top of their wish lists.

As a volunteer English teacher in China, you will teach English at these rural, resource-poor schools. Volunteers DO NOT need to be a qualified or experienced teacher. Volunteer simply need enthusiasm, an open mind, caring spirit and a compassionate nature. If English is not your first language it is important you are fluent and have both advanced written and verbal English skills.
