As I was working in the kindergarten I can only share with you how teaching in Chinese kindergarten looks like. The daily schedule is more or less the same in every kindergarten and it is totally different than teaching in high school or elementary school. I haven’t worked in a kindergarten outside China, so I hardly make comparisons about teaching practices. But from what I have seen in China, I believe there is no other country with such educational system.
The kids I was teaching, were only 4-6 years old, so there was more emphasis on taking care of kids and playing with them than actually teaching them.
My daily schedule usually looked like this:
9.00-9.20: 1st English lesson
9.30-9.50: 2nd English lesson
10.00-11.00: games, outdoor activities
11.30-14.30: break (nap time for kids)
14.30: afternoon snack
15.00: English lesson with another class
15.40: playing with kids
Every week I was teaching two classes: KC1 and KC2. One week I was teaching KC1 in the morning and KC2 in the afternoon and the next week vice versa.
Apart from me, there were two Chinese teachers and one live teacher in my class. The main tasks of Chinese teachers were to help me with the kids and organize the class. They were more experienced in teaching and were great source of advice. Every class had also a live teacher, whose job was to feed kids, take care of them while eating, clean the classroom and check the kids before the parents pick them up.
Every morning we also held morning talks. The purpose of morning talk was to revise English words and to prepare kids for the English class. They usually lasted for 20 minutes and took place in assembly hall, where all the kids gathered together.
