We have been helping teachers get work since 2003

Teach English in China Getting work in China is easy. China is the biggest market for English Language Teaching in the world. With almost 1.5 billion inhabitants, China has emerged as the world's largest potential market for just about anything - including English. Its hosting of the 2008 Olympic Games has accelerated the need for the Chinese to learn English. Also China is now involved in huge levels of international trade, so there is a great demand for Business English in the Chinese Commercial sector. Many companies are now setting up their own in-house English teaching programs.

Most ESL/EFL teachers arrange jobs before arriving in China. Non native English can find work teaching English in China, I know of a French Girl who taught English in China this year! Download the TEFL job contacts for finding work teaching English in China here!

Teaching and living in China is an incredible experience. Having spent your life as an anonymous average person in your home country, you suddenly become the centre of attention. Because you are an 'Foreigner' you become qualified for jobs you could never get back home. People want to talk to you. They want to know your opinion about everything. They want to be your friend. You may be interviewed on T.V. or appear in a commercial. You might be invited to take part in an athletic competition, even though you've never played the sport. You will be labeled as a 'Foreign Expert.'

Every student in China is required to study English up to and including University level, and standards in reading and writing are often very high. Grammar, vocabulary, sentence constructions; the traditional aspects of language learning are taught and tested thoroughly and by rote. The spoken and communicative aspects of the language, however, are almost never assessed. Competition in the education sector is strong, and having a pet Foreigner is a very prestigious mascot for a Chinese school. Middle-ranked schools especially feel they have to set themselves apart from local rivals, yet in the race to attract us the schools are tripping over themselves. You often have no text book and are completely free to teach anything you wish, which is great because you can be creative as you like in class. Some international schools will have their own yearly schedules and lesson plans already for you to pick up and take to class and so no prep for you.

Airfare to and from China are usually offered Policies on paying for airfare vary a lot from school to school. Schools usually pay for a foreign teacher's return airfare only (but some do not). Some schools promise to reimburse you for your plane ticket going over, but you're safest if they send you the ticket.
Expenses. Your salary should be sufficient for living expenses in China. Usually no rent or utilities. You'll probably get an advance on your first month's salary, which you'll probably need for settling-in expenses.(You may need other appliances, like a toaster oven, pots and pans, plates, utensils, and a stereo). There is much more variety of stuff available in China now and quality is improving a lot. In a bigger city life is much more modern now, with modern showers (with water heaters), washing machines, kitchen appliances, etc.
If you make trips to Hong Kong, Beijing, or Shanghai, and spend money at bars, hotels, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc, your money may not last too long. If you cook your own food you'll have plenty of money. If there is a dining hall or restaurant for foreigners, this is also a good way to make sure most of your salary stays in China. Dining halls for students are pretty cheap, though. Food on the street is also cheap. There are many reasonable restaurants, but expensive restaurants are becoming more common where you can easily spend $80. Think you know Chinese food from all those oriental restaurants you used to visit back home? That was sanitised Chinese grub for Westerners. The real thing is little like: chickens' feet, ducks' tongues, pigs' brains, not to mention virtually every internal organ from every animal you could hope (or not) to find. And then the rice always comes. Have a new experince teaching English in China.

Supermarkets, where you can get prepared foods and imported stuff are becoming more common but prices seem to be comparable to American stores. Health care should be provided free in China. Watch a China Travel Movie
