My wife and I decided that we wanted to have an adventure and take a teaching position in China. We knew there were many opportunities, but we had also heard some horror stories about people being tricked and cheated in China. After a positive recommendation from a fellow American online, we decided to interview with Sophie at Wonderful International English.
After our interview with Sophie, we decided this was the school we wanted to work for. She was honest, straightforward and professional. She helped us with all the paperwork and we felt confident that she knew what she was doing. Once we arrived the school picked us up at the airport, took us to our hotel room and began researching apartments for us. Later we got our work visas, bank accounts and phones. The school helped us settle in to our life here in China without any problems.
The work is enjoyable and actually quite easy. We work at the training centers here in Songjiang. Most of our students are adults so they are polite and serious about learning English. The children are also well-behaved and even more fun.
I would say that if you want to come teach in China, you cannot do much better than this! We have had no problems and are completely happy at this school. Talk to Sophie, she is the best!
