China – one of the biggest countries in the world with a rich history of over 5000 years. It is home to beautiful scenery, with mountains ranges, highlands, plains, basins, and hills as well as an equally diverse culture. Ever since the open-up policy in the late 80th, the English learning industry is booming rapidly and the needs of foreign teachers are immense. Today, even kindergartens look for foreign teachers to join and teach, not to mention primary and middle high schools. So now it’s the hay day for any foreign job seeker to step forward and utilize your knowledge. In return, teaching in China will bring you:
The average income of people in cities like Shanghai is 8800 RMB/month. However, an experienced foreign teacher can earn between 15,000 and 16,000RMB. And for second and third tier cities, any foreign teacher still can get somewhere between 11,000RMB to 14,000RMB, which is 3 or 4times as much as the number for local workers. With comparatively low living costs of food, rent and necessities, you can easily save up.
China now is one of the superpowers, experiencing a great number of changes in all aspects. This country is no longer the one where people used to eat rice and noodle only, and most of cities are now open to different cultures and customs, for example, western ideology. At the same time, traditional culture and historical relics of this ancient country are well preserved. So being exposure to this kind of transition enables you to expand outlook.
Traveling is always a bit of adventure and when you’re packing up to live and work on the other side of the world – that’s an adventure. There is so much to see and experience in China and all over Asia. Teaching in China allows you to explore this part of the world easily and without breaking the bank.
