ESL employment in China - Jobs in China

Having gained a variety of new skills from teaching English online, I now wish to expand my knowledge in the education industry, and aim to find a secure job overseas. My priority is to teach in China.


As an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher, I began my career teaching English online. Connecting with many students, and furthering their language skills, I quickly saw how rewarding this career path is. I’ve seen first hand, how important it is for the Chinese students to acquire English, not just from a young age, but of all ages, and it is very satisfying to witness their progression.


Millions of Chinese students are calling out for qualified ESL teachers to teach online, and abroad. To live and teach in China is definitely something I’ve considered in the past, and now I feel like I’m only an inch away from doing so. Taking the next step is a massive life choice for me, as I am unsure of what the future holds. There are so many beautiful cities across mainland China, so here I face my next challenge. Where will I choose to reside? Perhaps somewhere picturesque like the coastal city of Xiamen, or maybe the busy city of Beijing, as I also enjoy the hustle and bustle of thriving cites.


No matter where I choose to live and teach, one thing I know for sure is that I’ll never be short of a tasty feed. I love Chinese food, and am aware of the different tastes that vary from the North to the South. It’s all delicious. But food is just the beginning. The ancient and wonderful culture is breathtakingly colourful, the people are friendly and welcoming, and the climates that differ from province to province give me ample options, of where to reside.


China is a huge country and has so much to offer. There is always something to see for everyone, whether it’s the tranquil mountainside, the glorious beaches, or the hectic streets, you are bound to find your peace. For me, I like it all. I’m the guy who would rather lob myself into the local lifestyle, learn the language, eat and drink like the locals, and absorb the atmosphere at any chance given. As a minimalist, I travel lightly making it easier to get up and go. Once I have discovered my comfort zone in a foreign place, I can easily setup base, and familiarise myself with the environment that surrounds me.


Finding jobs in China can’t be that hard, right?


ESL employment in China is growing, as the demand for teachers is forever increasing. Due to the English language dominating the spectrum as the most accepted language when it comes to international business, more and more students in China are finding ways to learn, and further their English studies. Thankfully, as I am backed with a bachelor degree, my TESOL certification, and plenty of experience, I am positive and confident that I will find a job teaching English abroad. I have never taught at classroom level, but being an positive, animated individual, with a great passion for teaching, I think my credentials are perfect for teaching in China.


I am going through with this, and am excited for what life has in store for me. I cannot wait.


Maybe our paths will meet someday, and we can share stories of what it’s like to live, and teach in China.
