Live and teach in China

Over the past few decades, China has transformed itself into a global powerhouse. More and more Chinese are learning English, meaning that English teachers are always in demand. Education in China is taken very seriously from a young age. As Chinese families want to do everything they can to ensure their children succeed, learning English is seen as an essential part of a child’s education.

Teaching English overseas offers a unique opportunity to fully experience a culture very different to our own. Living in another country, you’re sure to learn just as much as your students and enjoy countless new experiences.

China is an especially fascinating destination. The country has many different ethnic groups, each with unique customs, cuisine, architecture, and fashion. China is also a country of extremes with megacities and peaceful villages,  ultra modern architecture sits beside traditional temples and palaces.

Many English Teachers choose China to learn the language, or to improve their existing knowledge of the language. Others go to increase their job prospects, employers in the West often look favorably on applicants who have China experience.

Others go to China simply to have a good time, there really is something for everyone from pristine natural scenery to high-tech computer markets, music festivals or an almost endless variety of culinary delights.

For those teachers who go to China but see teaching as just a means to an end there are many other opportunities, from office jobs to pop-singers, being a foreigner in China is a huge advantage when looking for high-paid work.
