What places are hiring English teachers in China?


Hi Lauren,

Great to see you're interested in teaching in China! Do you have a location in mind that you're looking to land a job in? China is in high demand for foreign language teachers,however not all locations in China are able to hire foreign teachers and sponsor the Z visa, which is the visa you need to legally teach in China.

CIEE is currently offering teaching placements in Shanghai, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Nanjing, Shandong, Jiangxi, and Nanjing to name a few. You can learn more about our program in China here: https://www.ciee.org/teach/china/.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other questions, happy to help!

Hi Lauren,

I actually wrote a big long guide for how to find a job teaching in China. I go over public schools vs academies, and if you should look in person or apply before you go! If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me!


Lauren, you might also want to take a look at our teaching job board (http://www.gooverseas.com/teaching-jobs-abroad) -- new recruiters and schools post daily, and especially those in South Korea and China.
