Best place to teach in China
Educators who are interested in teaching English in China need to look no further. Remember, China is a huge country, and not every region is made equal. This is wonderful news since it means that city inhabitants and environment enthusiasts alike will have many more alternatives for where to live, as well as a wider range of climatic options. For those who want to experience life in a large metropolis, Beijing or Shanghai are excellent choices, while Guangdong is the ideal location for those who want mild weather all year round! There are other provinces like Inner Mongolia, Sichuan, and Hunan that provide a whole distinct cultural experience as well as stunning natural beauty.
Obviously, every place is unique, but here are some of the most sought-after destinations for expatriates looking to work in China:
Beijing is the capital of China.
ESL teachers in China's most ancient metropolis will find that life in Beijing is full of opportunities and offers a rich multicultural background against which to carry out their work. There's more to China's capital city than meets the eye, from the neighboring mountains dotted with sections of the Great Wall to the hidden Buddhist temples nestled among the city's skyscrapers. There are also plenty of noodle soups and elaborate gardens.
The city of Shanghai is the second-largest
Shanghai has a lot to offer, and who can resist it? At first glance, everything seems to be towering, gleaming, and futuristic. In the back alleys, you'll discover traditional xiaolongbao businesses, old ladies making noodle soup by hand, and strangers meeting to practice tai-chi in the park. Shanghai gives you a flavor of contemporary China and will leave you scratching your head (in the best way possible).
City of Chengdu, China
If you don't enjoy spicy food and cuddly animals like pandas, you'll have a hard time teaching English in China. Sichuan is a province in central China with some of the world's greatest food, in my opinion. Be sure to stop at the neighboring gigantic buddha and bamboo trees while you're arranging your lessons. You may be sure you'll never be bored in this town!
The cities of Guangzhou, Xi'an, and Shenzhen are also well-known for English teaching opportunities.
Teaching positions are available in a wide range of educational institutions across China, with students ranging in age from kindergarten to university. There are four basic categories of Chinese schools:
Education in the public school system is mandatory.
Class sizes at these government-run institutions typically range from 30 to 50 pupils. Because English isn't the primary emphasis of the educational program, students' passion for the subject will vary. Teachers, on the other hand, are well-cared for and allowed considerable autonomy in the curriculum they teach.
There are two types of private schools:
These are vastly different based on the level of funding they have received. Insane amenities like theatres, climbing walls, and even horses may be found in the most spectacular private schools. Students at private schools have fewer classmates, compared to those in public institutions, but their salaries may be slightly higher. Parents who send their children to a private school frequently have aspirations of sending them to a university in another country, so if they believe their child is not progressing at a fast enough rate, they will not be afraid to bring up your teaching abilities with the administration.
Centers for Education and Training
Students of all ages may take English classes outside of school at these facilities. As a result, your target audience may include:
Parents who want their young children to get an early start on learning English but who haven't begun formal schools yet.
After-school and weekend students who want to study English classes
Adults who want to enhance their English for many reasons, including personal growth and career advancement.
This sort of center offers small class numbers (typically no more than 15 pupils) as well as access to high-quality materials and facilities for teachers in China. For that reason, you may find yourself teaching a lot of "demonstration classes" in order to draw in new consumers at these kinds of institutions. Students that sign up for your courses pay you a commission on their tuition.
International Colleges and Universities
These are geared for international students studying in China and have stringent recruiting standards. Benefits, on the other hand, are excellent, with longer vacations and larger pay packages in line with European or North American norms.
