Summer School Teacher Jobs in China

Taking a summer teaching position in China is a fantastic alternative if you have no immediate intentions to remain in the country for a lengthy amount of time but would want to see the culture and sights of the country. (The opportunity to travel around China is an extra bonus.) As an example, I'd want to offer my summer teaching experience in Shanghai, China, in the hopes that it would be helpful to you in your future endeavors.

Take caution not to get disoriented.

A Chinese company for whom I worked assisted me in obtaining a visa as well as arranging transportation and hotel at the airport prior to my trip.

A knowledgeable teacher also suggested me to bring insect repellent since Shanghai has a hot summer and you may meet "small animals" like as mosquitoes and cockroaches in your apartment, according to my instructor.

When it comes to clothing (and what to pack in your suitcase before visiting China), you should inquire with your company to see if you will be required to dress in a uniform on a daily basis, in addition to your usual summer apparel. It was normal for me to pack more than one suit in my suitcase before leaving China, but I didn't do so this time since I was traveling alone.

The wearing of corporate-branded uniforms is a requirement for all employees at our business.


Payouts at the end of a job's tenure are regular, but they're also unusual. You'll need to have enough money saved up to meet your living costs in China before you can start earning money in the country. For example, in Shanghai, I spent around $15 per day for food and lodging. On the other hand, in certain small Chinese towns, you may get by with just $8 in your wallet if you plan beforehand.


When shopping in China, it is a good idea to carry a few hangers with you since most washing machines in the country do not have a drying function. If you need to dry your clothes on a rainy day, there are various laundries that provide professional laundry services (washing-drying-ironing).


Tea swindles are a common occurrence in Shanghai, and they may be rather costly. Last summer, I was compelled to immerse myself in "authentic" tea culture for around 500 RMB. Then proceed with caution.


There are various local cafes that provide delicious meals for approximately 50 RMB, making lunch a reasonably priced choice for the working person. If you are unable to read the Chinese menu, you may make your choices based on the visuals that are shown on the menu board.


When I arrived at the airport, I was greeted by a representative from the company where I worked.

In Shanghai, I use the train or the bus practically every day to go to work. If you want to travel by train or high-speed rail, don't forget to carry your passport with you.

Certain taxis may refuse to transport you if your destination is too close or too far away; nonetheless, they will do it without expressing any malice. All you have to do now is wait for the next taxi or switch modes of transportation and you'll be on your way.
