Teaching in china and living in China is an incredible experience. You will become the centre of attention. People will want to talk to you. They will want to know your opinion on everything and want to be your friend, such is the friendly nature of Chinese people.

Once you have arrived at your chosen school, you must familiarize yourself with your new environment. A foreign teacher is generally expected to complete 18-20 teaching lessons per week, each lesson is for a period of 40-45 minutes. These are termed academic hours.

There are two terms to a Chinese schooling year.

Term one is from September through to mid-January,

Term two is from mid-February through to mid- to late June. Schools are employing foreign teachers all year round, and, therefore, so is our organization.


As a teacher in China , you will probably not get rich. Salaries for foreign teachers are generally in the range of ¥3000-¥6000 per month, which is around $USD360-$USD730 per month. These are mainly with a college certificate through to Bachelor's degree (in any field). If you have a Master's degree, you can get a somewhat higher salary.

Salaries are also dependent on the number of teaching hours you do: the more hours, the higher the salary. In addition, you will get about ¥2000($USD180) extra as a travel allowance plus your airfare reimbursement.

With all this in mind, one must understand that the cost of living in china is extremely low, and your accommodation is usually provided by the school. In general we can say most teachers receive:


1. Competitive salary

2. Airfare reimbursement

3. Travel allowance

4. Fully-furnished and equipped, modern apartment

5. All utilities paid

6. Working schedule of between eighteen and twenty 45-minute classes per week

7. Airport pick up

8. School-sponsored excursions

9. And, of course, full access to our expertise and support

There are many different places for a teacher to teach in China . They include:


Kindergartens Primary schools
Middle schools (contain Junior and Senior levels) Universities,College
Language Centres (these usually teach on weekends, evenings and school holidays when their students are learning additionally outside their school or work hours.) Other places such as company offices, community halls or private homes.

The Network arranges employment for foreign teachers throughout the country. Mostly, the work will be in large cities with many facilities and amenities readily available.


When the teacher arrives at his or her school, an introduction to the school's governing/leading bodies and most of the Chinese English-teaching staff will take place. Also, an orientation around the city will be provided.

The Foreign Director will provide a detailed description of the teacher's employment requirements and a full description of all the details relating to foreign teacher rights, duties, and responsibilities.

Such details will be provided to the teacher prior to arrival in China through our Case and Placement Managers, who will be assigned to individual teachers.


Within approximately four weeks, all processing of details in China will take place and be completed: details such as medical examinations, Foreign Residency Permit (to reside permanently in China for the period stipulated on the permit) and Foreign Experts Certificate (a certificate which permits the holder/bearer to teach English in China).


Most teachers have access to textbooks and teaching materials; there are many resources available from the school, and assistance will be provided should you require more material. It is desirable that you bring with you some items of interest from your homeland that may be of interest to students during lessons.


Support from both our participating schools and The Network itself ensure an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
