APPLY NOW! TEFL jobs in China!

There’s no doubt about it – China is one of the most popular destinations for TEFL graduates, and it’s easy to see why! With the country being so full of culture, amazing sights and food, who wouldn’t want to spend some time living and teaching there?

There is already an estimated 100,000 EFL teachers in the country, yet the demand for English teachers doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. EFL teachers not only find themselves Teaching English as a Foreign Language in schools, but also in companies who are keen to learn the ‘Global Language’ of English. The fact that English lessons are compulsory for school children in China from the age of nine is a big advantage to UK-TEFL teachers.


Sights you must see!

Whether you fancy living and teaching in China’s biggest and busiest cites like Beijing or Shanghai, or in the countryside, there are some sights that you simply have to see on your days off!

The Great Wall of China, Beijing

One of the most well known attractions in China and the longest wall in the world – who wouldn’t want to be able to tell people that they’ve walked along the Great Wall of China?

The Terracotta Army, Xi’an

These amazing life-size models were underground for over 2,000 years, until a group of farmers discovered them in 1974.

The Forbidden City, Beijing

Fancy seeing some ancient Chinese architecture? Look no further - with over 8,000 rooms, it’ll be a task to not get lost in this palace!

Giant Pandas, Chengdu

The Giant Panda is one of China’s national treasures – so you simply have to see one if you are in the country! Although you can see them in zoos all across China, Chengdu is the Giant Panda’s hometown.
