Passionate, Creative, Enthusiastic Teachers Wanted in Kuala Lumpur
We believe that the ability to speak English fluently is essential for everyone in the modern world. We also believe that learning English is much more than just memorising lists of words. At Emphasis English Academy, we teach young people to master the skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening in English and we do that through the Emphasis Method. Our methodology involves engaging the students with interesting lessons and encouraging them to express themselves with creative speaking and writing exercises.
Founded in 2004, our dedication and passion for teaching English has helped to grow and grow over the past ten years. We have a reputation in Malaysia for excellence and we are firmly committed to developing that reputation by delivering the highest quality courses for young people.
We have two centres in Malaysia (our main centre in Kuala Lumpur and a branch in Seremban) and are currently recruiting one new full-time teacher for each centre to start in December 2014.
Malaysia, a tropical paradise, is one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world. With its three major ethnic groups all living in harmony and the shared, laid-back sense of fun, it is one of the best places in the world to teach English.
Malaysia is as diverse as its culture. Cool hideaways are found in the highlands that roll down to warm, sandy beaches and rich, humid mangroves.
About Kuala Lumpur:
Kuala Lumpur is the federal capital and most populous city in Malaysia. Rated as an alpha world city, Kuala Lumpur is the cultural, financial and economic centre of Malaysia due to its position as the capital as well as being a key city.
Living in Kuala Lumpur is easy for the adventurous expat. There is a basic standard of English among the general population making it easy to get around and with a huge mix of activities from diving in the clear tropical waters of the islands to attending world-class performances at the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in the world famous Petronas Towers, Malaysia never ceases to offer something for everyone.
The garden city of Seremban is located about an hours drive south of the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Seremban is famous for its food, architecture and laid-back lifestyle. Close to the popular seaside town of Port Dickson, hot springs and natural jungle and surrounded by rolling hills, Seremban is a choice destination for nature lovers and those who enjoy an active lifestyle.
