What do I need to teach English in China?

To teach English in China, is a life full of reward. More and more teachers are opening up to the idea, and trying something new. Not only is it rewarding for the teacher, but also for the many smiling students, they will no doubt encounter within their career.

A native English speaker, armed with a TESOL/TEFL (or equivalent) certification, can find great teaching opportunities in many countries around the globe. Each year many Americans, Australians, Britons, Canadians, and New Zealanders are jumping on this amazing trend amongst E.S.L teachers, by the thousands, all ready to teach English in China. RealTeachers are connected to over 50 cities, scattered across mainland China, with teaching jobs ranging from Kinder level, to University lecturing, and everything in between. Even if you are a non-native English speaker, but fluent in English speaking, and writing, there are still ample possibilities.

Most schools in China would also like some professional experience (though not in all cases), and private language schools often require a Bachelor degree, along with the TESOL/TEFL certification. Adding a Bachelor degree, only opens up more teaching English job opportunities of, and possibly a healthier pay check. Legal Documents, like Passports, and correct visas, is a must, and it’s also highly recommended to have a police background check.

RealTeachers opens up this dream, and makes it so very easy to teach English in China. Haven’t got your TEFL certificate? We can help. We will also cover your round trip, including airport pickup, and of course your accommodation, which we will locate as close to the school as possible. Sounds too good to be true! With our highly experienced management, and extremely helpful staff, we will see to that you are very well looked after, with 24/7 support. We will even help with setting up your bank account!
