About English Language Institute China, ELIC

Since 1981, ELIC has been placing passionately committed Christians in teaching roles across Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. ELIC desires to provide quality education while developing meaningful relationships with students and the community to make a positive impact. There are opportunities for college students and college graduates to serve during the summer, for 6 months, or 1+ years. We primarily serve our countries through English education, but are also involved in refugee work, community development, and more. We provide all the training necessary, so you do not need to have an education degree, teaching or language experience.
