Deciding to teach English in China is something we have never once regretted. But we understand it is a big decision to make. On this page you will find a number of helpful stories about our experiences: why we decided to teach English abroad, why China, and information about the schools that we teach at.

Jobs teaching English in China can vary widely. Really, your experience depends on a number of factors such as:
Who you want to teach (kids, teenagers, or adults)
Where you want to teach (Local schools, private / international schools, after school / work English training schools, private tutoring, corporate English consulting / training)
Where you want to live (Major cities like Beijing or Shanghai, other smaller cities like Kunming or Chengdu, or the countryside)
The two of us chose to work at after-school / work English training schools. So we work primarily on the evenings and weekends, with our off-days on Mondays and Tuesdays (which we like because it’s less crowded to go out and about around town).
