Job details

The primary focus of American Eagle Institute is to provide professional excellence in English education.

American Eagle Institute

At American Eagle Institute we specialize in teaching English as a second language to children in Asia. Our primary goal is to develop a method of language learning which allows children to listen, speak, read, and to write in English without having to translate from their native language. We do this first by introducing an immersion style of learning where only English is permitted inside the classroom. In order to create a true immersion classroom environment, American Eagle schools only hire native English speaking teachers. These teachers are there to not only provide a means for students to learn English, but they also provide a channel for the students to understand different western cultures.

Learning how to listen, speak, read and write are only the basic outcomes of learning a foreign language. As a school we employ native English speakers. We recognize that ESL teachers do not simply deliver or facilitate learning but also are the transmitters of culture. In developing and nurturing the knowledge of a culture, a teacher guides a student in building their own cultural identity. They create significant cultural experiences so students can discover a foreign culture, and in turn discover insights into their own culture. Through experiencing different cultures of the world, students become inspired and can truly display the power of using a language.

Our teachers and staff form an international team, with members from many different countries. Our foreign teachers must be native English speakers and therefore generally come from the United States, Britain, Ireland, South Africa, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In providing a challenging and enjoyable working environment, we continue to grow and flourish while attracting qualified professionals from different countries with these same goals in mind.
