Teaching In China

Last Update: January 03, 2016

This offers excellent opportunities for those interested in teaching English in China. The English language market is growing fast and many new positions are becoming available for those wanting to teach English in China.


China is a global financial force and as English is the established global language of business. There is a major focus is improving English competency amongst it’s citizens and as many as 400 million Chinese people are now studying English

A market is estimated to be US$4.5 billion annually.

I have personally been working and teaching English in China for more than three years and have taught in many schools and universities so I am well placed to give you good advice.

Hello,
My husband taught English in China for approx. 1.5 years. Most Caucasians, male or female teachers, businessmen or business women receive a much better treatment than if one were Asian. From salary, living quarters, etc. to assignments.... Students were fine, it's the establishments! It is, discrimination and racism...No kidding! Incidentally, my husband is white.

Thanks for this. I have a TEFL Diploma and taught English in Turkey for a while some years ago. I thought there was an age limit as I have looked at some teaching English sites and they all give am age limit to apply. I am 65 although don't feel it. I might have another look.

Hello Lucinda, There is an age limit to apply for teaching positions in China; especially in big cities where you get better salary, living accommodations, etc.. Beware of the small, towns, rural areas and too good to be true offers! Do your homework and ask me or anyone who lived in China for a while... My husband taught English in one of the big cities, salary was great and admin. would work with you if they took you on even if you passed 65. Good luck!

I used to do that in Thailand. My last TEFL related job was in China for a few months, the company I worked for used to do some work in Shanghai & Beijing with a couple of universities.

This was back in 2002 / 03, using software to help students learn English. Wall Street were just getting started then and were our main competitor. But they had a massive budget for buying gifts for officials. We had nothing to offer apart from better quality content. So that venture didn't last too long.

My TEFL site - http://ajarn.com is the main site for anyone wanting to teach English in Thailand. So if you fancy a change from China, you know where to look. :-)
