What’s it like to teach in China?
My First Week Teaching in China:
“On my first day, I taught only three classes. My students ranged the whole gamut of the acceptable range for their courses from 3-14 years old. The older students were immediately friendly and forgave small mistakes as I figured out technical things. With the younger kids, I had the help of a Chinese Assistant, who took care of little accidents, spills, and helped me navigate bathroom breaks. I quizzed kids with flashcards, played lots of games, sang and made them sing, made recordings of our singing, and gave them stickers on their way out….”
Who can teach English in China?
Teaching English is perfect for people who wish to experience life in another country. Whether you’re looking to take a break from working at home, go on a paid gap year, or set up a full career overseas. Teaching can be a brilliant springboard to take a leap in any direction you choose.
Here’s a list of the requirements needed to get a work permit and teaching job in China:
You don’t need any previous experience to start teaching in China! If you’re new to teaching, you can learn everything you need to know through an online TEFL certification course and be ready to start working within a matter of weeks.
Most teaching positions in China require native speakers (UK/US/CAN/AUS/NZ/SA passport holders), however, it can also be possible for non-natives to secure well-paid teaching jobs in China.
The majority of schools in China require teachers to hold a bachelor’s degree (in any subject) in order to qualify for a work visa. If you don’t have a degree but wish to teach in China, please get in touch. In some circumstances a work visa can still be provided through other means.
When teaching English in China, or elsewhere, you won’t need to speak the local language. In fact, it’s usually discouraged to speak any language other than English in the classroom. However, if you do have an interest in learning Chinese, some of our teaching jobs include a free weekly Chinese language lesson to help you improve your communication skills.
If you don’t meet all these requirements, you can still apply through the form below and we’ll help to find what opportunities we can offer you.

Studying online was really simple and convenient. I completed the course in about 6 weeks by studying after work each evening.
Very happy to have finished my TEFL course and have already secured a job in China!
