Why Teach at Shengda?

Founded in 1994, Shengda College was initially a branch of Zhengzhou University, Henan’s only elite university under China’s “211 Project”. In the spring of 2011, Shengda College qualified for secession and is now well on its way to becoming a full-fledged university.

Shengda’s reputation in accounting, international trade, and foreign languages makes it one of the most sought after schools by prospective Henan students. Furthermore, Shengda is known for its relatively high job acceptance rate after graduation.

Foreign teachers live in a sizable community of about 13 foreign colleagues. Teachers can also enjoy an indoor English Corner that is managed by a foreign teacher and contains movie/TV rooms, a non-alcoholic bar and year-round air conditioning.

Henan’s historical significance will give visitors an authentic Chinese experience. This province rests on 4000 years of history starting from China’s first dynasty, the Xia Dynasty. Tourist sites include the Shaolin Temple, the Buddhist caves of the Longmen Grottoes, and the scenic areas of the Yuntai Mountains and Baligou Valley.

Teacher Testimonials

  • “I think one of the unique reasons to work at Shengda College is that foreign teachers have the same accommodations and facilities like fitness, media, computer and study rooms like the students. These are effective access points to get to know the students better and gain their confidence. Another reason is the support of the FAO in creating a friendly atmosphere and comfortable environment. I am elated that the FAO staff is assisting in passport issues, work permit, day trips and Saturday shopping.”
  • “Personally, I am very much inspired by the students to continue to teach at Shengda College. They come to learn and respect the classroom environment. I am impressed how they respond to me. They genuinely enjoy practicing English and I learn a lot from them about the Chinese culture.”
  • “At Shengda, I enjoy the advantages of living in a small town near rural areas, but I still have easy access to a big city with its advantages. Having listened to foreign teachers from other schools talk about their Foreign Affairs Officers, I think Shengda’s are among the friendliest, most understanding, generous and helpful in China. I have more job security at Shengda than I’d have at many other schools.”
  • “The school is not located in a big, noisy city, better location, still a suburb of Zhengzhou. We still have various shops outside the school to buy food etc. School campus environment is pleasant, lots of trees, lakes. Students are good and never cause any trouble. Teachers have freedom in preparing their own lessons. Salary is paid on time, don’t have to chase it up. Weekends are free of classes.”
  • “LongHu is a multi school community. A simple thing like – there are 5 places now in LongHu where I can buy a Western style pizza (very close to the school) and more clubs and things to do – as the town develops and grows. LongHu is becoming more convenient and important.”
