York English - Fuzhou, China

I am currently in Fuzhou, China teaching English. My experience with GreenHeart travel has been wonderfully smooth. From step one, working with Kara at GreenHeart who was so helpful and kind. To landing in China and working with York English. I can still remember landing in Fuzhou, my name held up on a sign and a lift waiting to take me to my apartment.
My first day at York was such an experience. I instantly felt comfortable and at home with coworkers taking me under their wing and the admin going out of his way helpful.
The school takes their education very seriously.. It allows you to really take on becoming a good teacher, which was very important for me coming from very little experience.
Nearly every weekend here I have done something. I’ve met so many cool people and Fuzhou is a very green city by the mountains with a pretty good nightlife.

Gabe experience

Coming to China has been a life-changer for me. I worked back in the United States, but I knew I wanted a new experience. Living in Shenyang, China now, I realized I made the right decision. Kara Menini from Greenheart travel is awesome. She was very informative about where I was going to teach and how the living conditions were. She also talked about her own experiences, which eased my anxiety of traveling halfway across the world, speaking a language I did not know, and experiencing an unknown culture. A year and a half in, and I am very happy with the decision that I made. I have learned a lot of the language, visited many different countries, and experienced some things that at first, were only dreams. I could not have done all of these things without Kara and the Greenheart program. If you want to travel and work abroad, I recommend Kara and Greenheart Travel 100%. They will provide you with the support you need to have a smooth transition into your program. With them, you will always know that you are not alone.

Teaching in Shenyang

My name is Tiffany and I am currently a teacher in Shenyang China. I began my process to teach by contacting GreenHeart because I knew they would be fast and reliable. My recruiter was Kara Menini, and she was awesome. She was super informative, and answered all of my questions accurately and in a timely matter. Being that she was a teacher in Thailand, I trusted her judgement and opinion as I was preparing to head overseas. Since I've been here, Kara has even come to visit us and witness the experience herself. It shows a lot about a company to send their employees out to witness the experience in person, and I really appreciated all of her input from her experiences. Now that I am well settled in, I am very happy with the job, my life here, and her role she played in helping me get here today.
