Types of English Teaching Jobs in Beijing
It's common for jobs to have a one-year contract that might be extended. Most of the time, you'll be requested to remain another year and bring your children along when your first signing is through. With some luck, you can get a long-term career in China if you know how. For older children, each lesson lasts 60 to 100 minutes; for younger pupils, it lasts 45 minutes (although, it varies greatly with the school). Without learning Chinese, students have to work harder to grasp your words, but knowing some basic Mandarin will help you communicate with employers in a more fluent Chinese dialect. In addition, since their sentence structures are comparable to yours, you may pick up a lot from the younger pupils.
Schools in China follow the same set of regulations, regardless of whether they are public, private, or bilingual. There are a lot of them that will supply you with housing, which may either be on campus or within a short distance of it if you secure a college employment. Get them to cover some of the rent even if they do not offer a place for you to live. For the most part, the amount of time spent in the classroom doesn't exceed 25 per week, which includes office time (it can go up too 100 minutes in some colleges, but you can be lucky and have smaller teaching periods).
Chances are you'll have access to a cafeteria if you work at a school that has one. In other words, you may receive food for free or for a low price, even if you don't know where it came from (general rule: don't eat anything that makes a sound!). You are required and encouraged to speak English constantly in all three "kind" of schools in order to make it difficult for the kids. In the beginning, particularly with smaller children, it might be a bit of a challenge. Games, role-play, or whatever else comes to mind may help keep morale up.
If China was the first country that sprang to mind while you were considering a study abroad opportunity, freelance/private lessons may be the greatest fit for your situation. Nothing binding (apart from verbal agreements), no one watching your every move, and almost unrestricted personal autonomy. The following is a step-by-step guide:
To begin, seek for a private school that needs part-time instructors. You will be paid on a monthly or weekly basis, which gives the school some stability. You will also be teaching a large number of students, most of whom will be in one-on-one settings (which are more profitable than having 15 kids babbling and screaming in the same class; less headaches, same money).
Two: design your own fliers and put them up yourself. Make sure they're engaging, succinct, and fun! Target schools, universities, and other places where young people congregate to distribute them. You are responsible for announcing your pricing to the public. Remember that the Chinese prefer to bargain, so place your bid a little higher than normal (the standard is RMB 150) in the hopes of securing a modest "discount" (or not, depending on your luck!).
Teaching English in China as a volunteer is a significant achievement. Children in rural areas may lack the financial means to attend an English-language school. When they're not supporting their parents with hard agricultural labor, some merely have rudimentary schooling. It doesn't matter if you have to communicate using simple drawings and gestures; this experience will benefit everyone involved. Many organizations and programs are available to help you take the initial step, but before you do, look up their credentials on the internet.
