    Can you teach English in China without knowing Chinese?

    Working in a foreign nation where you don't speak the original language may be a terrifying experience, especially if you have never done it before. However, you should not allow your concern of not being able to communicate in Mandarin to prevent you from teaching English in China.

    Is it necessary for me to study Chinese in order to teach English in China?

    The simple answer is a resounding no!

    It is not required to be fluent in Mandarin (or Cantonese) in order to get recruited as a teacher in China. As a matter of fact, it is preferable if you do not communicate with your pupils in any language other than English.

    The vast majority, if not nearly all, of foreign English instructors working in China, are unable to communicate in Mandarin beyond a few words. English proficiency, a bachelor's degree, and a TEFL certification are typically the only criteria for English teaching employment in China, including Teach Away's own Explore program. There aren't many further prerequisites for these positions.

    If you're interested in working as an ESL or language center instructor anyplace in China, the fact that you don't speak the local language will be considered an advantage by your prospective employer. The majority of schools will want their pupils to be completely immersed in the English language when they are in the classroom.. It is, as you are surely aware, the most successful method of learning a foreign language.

    Yes, you read it correctly: not being able to communicate in Mandarin is an advantage when applying for English teaching positions in China.

    As a teacher with native English language abilities, you are expected to speak with your pupils entirely in English, however you may have a local teaching assistant present in the event of a severe language barrier between you and your students. Most of the time, your pupils will have some knowledge of the English language, so you will not be beginning from scratch in the first place.

    How to deal with the difficulties of teaching English in China due to linguistic obstacles

    So you've figured out how to communicate with your kids in the classroom, but what about going about on your own outside of school hours? With those who may or may not know how to speak English? Is this an idea that makes you feel uncomfortable?

    We understand that learning Mandarin isn't always the most straightforward endeavor. However, just as forcing your pupils to listen and speak in English will make it simpler for them to learn English, you will be astonished at how easy it is to acquire the fundamental Mandarin phrases you will need to get by!

    Take some time before you go to remember some fundamental words and their pronunciation. If you can demonstrate that you have a fundamental understanding of the language, locals will be far more willing to assist you if you need it. It's inevitable that you'll find yourself in a position where communication fails, but the important thing is to accept these mistakes in stride and learn from them.
