Ron's TEFL experience in China

Ron took an Advanced TEFL Course May 2015 in Manchester and is now teaching in China.

How would you rate your course?


What drew you to taking a UK-TEFL course?

Travel around the world.

Tell us what you are doing now? Can you describe a typical day as an EFL teacher?

I am currently teaching English in Changchun, China at a primary school, my day starts at 8.30am and finishes at 3pm, the kids are great and loving and always asking about my life back in UK. After primary school finishes I go to work at a training centre where I teach students from 4yrs to 13yrs old, which is another satisfying job that I accommodation is A1 and my staff are very friendly even the parents of the children.

I would highly recommend taking the TEFL course because it has opened up a new great adventure for me to see different cultures and gaining valuable experience in teaching.

What is your favourite part of Teaching English as a Foreign Language?

To see the smile on the children's faces knowing that I have contributed in their life for what they are about to experience in future life.

Why did you choose your teaching location? What is your favourite thing about living there?

I love Asia, so I did not give it a second thought and I wanted to experience the culture with not been here before.

What are your future plans?

Not put to much thought into this yet but I am sure I will be going onto a new adventure and experience another country and its culture in the near future.

What advice would you give to someone wanting to Teach English as a Foreign Language?

Take that chance because you might never get it in the future. I did and i never looked back and I am so grateful to UK-TEFL for giving me the opportunity to travel the world and seeing different cultures

Would you recommend taking a UK-TEFL Course?
