Who are we?

  • English-Teachers-China.com belongs to a group of companies operating since 1999.
  • We have a good record with sustainable activities over several years.
  • We are professionals in the Human Resources and Education sectors.
  • We are a multicultural team based in China.

Why is English-Teachers-China.com different from other companies and/or websites?

English-Teachers-China.com is a FREE Teacher Placement Agency.

We never take a percentage from your salary and there are no hidden fees. Schools and businesses cover our fees.

You plan to leave your home country in Australia, Europe, New Zealand or North America and want to start working in China. It’s hence important to know whom you’re dealing with which is reassuring for both teachers and their families.

Many placement websites for English teachers are anonymous and impersonal. Website bios rarely display team photos and it is difficult for you to know who provides a service and what logistical needs are required. We bear to differ. Please take your time and find out who we are. This is the main object of these webpages.

English-Teachers-China.com is a specialized department of ACROPOLIS ASSOCIATES GROUP.

Nicolas and his US partners founded ACROPOLIS ASSOCIATES in 1999.
Our company started its operations in China in 2005.
Our activities ensure quality of service and reliability.
The original founders of the company are still active partners today.

We obtained an official license from the Chinese government for the recruitment business.
Nicolas leads and manages the Recruitment Department throughout China and other Asian countries.
Suzy leads and manages the Education Department having over 20 years’ experience in education and training. She has developed a privileged link between Chinese academic partners and business schools and/or universities in Europe.
We also have over 8 years’ experience for visa applications and work permits for foreigners which is managed by our specialised business unit.

The management and its team are Chinese, French and British citizens.
We speak English, French, Greek and Mandarin including Shanghai and Jiangsu dialects.
We are based in China because we believe it is not possible to provide a professional service without a permanent presence and a reliable network in the country.
