Why teach in China


As China’s economy has grown so has its demand for qualified TESOL teachers. If you have a TESOL certificate you can find work here, and there are opportunities for both native and non-native speakers. Work can be found in public or private schools as well as various language institutes. You can expect to receive roughly $800 to $1600 per month in salary depending on qualifications, experience and location. Private schools will often pay more than public schools but will require you to work more hours. Private classes are also a possibility and will enable you to increase your monthly income significantly. Generally you can expect accommodation, visa fees, and medical insurance to be part of the package and additional benefits might include paid airfares to and from your country of origin and also free Chinese lessons.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

As a TEFL teacher it is challenging to work in all 4 skills in one time when the time is limited. I also find it challenging when working with little children because teacheng them how to write takes up a lot more time than teaching how to write something. Is's also very true that they don't spend the time at home learning and practicing their skill at home.In this unit, I learnt the fundamental objectives of teaching a language and the outcomes one must work towards. The unit also discussed individually what to do when teaching vocabulary, grammar and language functions. It also detailed out a suggestive approach for each of these three tasks with suggested activities for the engage, study and activate phases.
