We have a wide range of opportunities available in China, but it's important that you consider your options carefully as you don't want to opt for a job that you realize you can't realistically complete.
China is one of the most popular countries where INTESOL certified teachers opt to spend their first year in the TEFL teaching game. It offers a unique cultural experience with a salary that covers all living costs and enables you to earn a little too. Positions are available throughout the year, with any teacher who has completed an INTESOL TEFL/TESOL training course welcome to apply. Applicants should however be native speakers from the UK, Ireland, South Africa, USA, Canada, Australia or New Zealand. The attractive part of teaching in China is that you receive a rent-free apartment as part of your contract so living costs become much cheaper than usual.
