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.

In this unit it's all about engaging the students interest in learning a new language, which can be very tricky at times, especially when working with young toddlers. You have to change activities constantly to prevent the students losing interest. I'd be interested in teaching adults for this very reason, because they have a wider attention span compared to children.The unit is very important and vital which covers different themes that can be used in the classroom to have productive and efficient classroom teaching. It covers case study, frame working, different types of games, problem based learning, speech act theory, computer aided language learning and sample lesson plans which are very valuable in teaching English language.
