The opportunity to experience China

Europe, the US, South America, Australia… are common destinations for tourism or placements but have you ever thought about China? China, the country with a history of 5,000 years and a population of 1.3 billion people might be your next destination.

Teaching English in China is a radically different socio-cultural experience that will let you discover the real country and its people beyond all the stereotypes. You will be surrounded by students and other teachers that will treat you with intense curiosity, hospitality, and lots of kindness.

The positions in China are for teaching English in public schools and universities. But let’s have a look at some interesting figures of this programme:

  • Teaching time in China is usually 12 -19 hours a week. Each teaching period lasts for 40 minutes in primary schools and to one hour at university.
  • During your spare time you can even learn some Mandarin Chinese, the language spoken by 937,132,000 people, first in the ranking of number of native speakers.
  • The accommodation is free of charge in apartments.
  • Some schools may offer free meals.
  • For your work at a public school, college or university, you will likely be paid between 3,000 and 5,000RMB/month (roughly US$400-$620).
  • The participants are expected to apply at least 3 months prior to their preferred start date.

The fall semester begins in September and the spring semester begins late February, get more information and your Application Form from Teaching English in China page at Global Choices website. Also You might be interested in other Teaching Abroad programmes available all year around!
