Amazing Program - Very Reliable

I was determined to move to China, but due to the pandemic and ever-changing regulations, I had no idea where to even begin. Arnold makes the process so much easier by connecting us with hiring schools, helping with the interview process, and guiding us through the process of obtaining a visa and traveling to China. There are regular video calls with all the prospective teachers in the program (and at times teachers who are already in China) which helps tremendously by providing support. There are also workshops to prepare us to be better teachers. Now that I am here, I am absolutely loving life in China!

  • Frequent Video Calls and Individual Check-ins

Knows what they're doing

I applied to teach in China late in 2019, and then covid happened a mere three months or so later. The support I got from this recruiter's was helpful; this plus my company's support staff meant that I could collate news and help from different sources and I didn't feel like I was relying too much on one person or institution.

The application process was extensive and they provide help and advice every step of the way, especially from former teachers who have gone to China themselves and have returned after their contract ended. There's only so much online blogs could do and this personal touch helped alleviate any concerns I had with moving to China.

The best experience of my life

Having not had the best experience moving to China previously due to very little guidance and no social support, I was apprehensive about embarking on the same journey again.

However I can categorically say that TEIC made my experience unforgettable in all the right ways - we were instantly connected to a large group of teachers also making the move to China and Arnold was on-hand at all times to answer any questions. The meet-up in London prior to heading out and the summer-camp training in China before going to our cities was invaluable in terms of the teaching skills, experience and also the relationships I made with the other teachers. I made life-long friends from this programme and this gave me plenty of opportunities to travel in China with friends in different cities.

Cannot recommend this agency enough if you want to study in China!

Helpful and supportive throughout

TEIC were very helpful throughout this whole process. In spite of the constantly changing requirements due to the pandemic, Arnold was always available and willing to offer assistance and guidance whenever I had questions about the interview process, document legalization, visas, flights and so on. As well as the help he was personally able to offer, he also invited me to join several WeChat groups which provided valuable insight into the green code maze. He has continued to provide support now that I am in China. If you're thinking of teaching English in China, I thoroughly recommend using their services.

  • Support throughout the interview process
  • Help with paperwork and green codes

Friendly, professional and reliable.

My China experience came out of nowhere. As I approached the end of University I wondered what to do next. The GoOverseas team gave me an opportunity I will never forget. The networking opportunities from then on has put me in contact with people all over China, giving me opportunities to explore, seek, travel and grow both professionally and personally.
Alongside the team’s connectivity and helpfulness comes a reassurance in these current times. Arnold has reached out regularly to ensure that I and other teachers are safe and well during these times. This has always been reassuring.

One of the best experiences of my life

Teaching English in China was an experience I will never forget!! When I was in my first year of University, I applied for the teach English in China summer programme which was 2 weeks of teaching at a summer camp in China. The application experience was very straight forward and I felt as if I could be 100% myself when sharing my experience and ideas. After being selected for the program, there was an orientation day where I met the people I would be working alongside which was very beneficial as I was able to travel with some of them and you felt like you were not alone in the process. The actual experience of teaching at first was a little daunting but as soon as you start, it is so rewarding to feel like you are capable of teaching. Seeing the children progress and enjoy the classes was the highlight for me. As well as this, you have plenty time to explore your surroundings after work.
I would really recommend this program for anyone who struggles with confidence or is looking for something new to self develop. I found that while I was teaching I was really able to let go of past anxieties and stress. It's also a very good way to discover a new culture and you just might want to return. After visiting China, I started studying international business and Chinese at University because i was so fascinated with the language and culture.

  • Excellent Support
  • Great value for money
  • Brilliant location
  • Wifi in school was the best

Teach English in China Review

I took part in the programme a couple years ago, and I still think fondly of my time teaching in China. It was a joy to teach the children and experience the culture. The staff were friendly and I had lots of fun. In terms of facilities we stayed at a nice hotel nearby, lunches were provided, and we had an air conditioned staff room for break times. Mid-week we put on a show for the kids, and I remember all of us sang a Bruno Mars song. On the weekends there are a lot of beautiful places to visit. I would recommend to anyone to take part.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
My first class, a class size of over 50 kids, felt daunting at first. My teaching assistant greatly helped me overcome every obstacle. She was very helpful, and I am very grateful to her.

Highly Recommend

Going to China through Impact Teaching was definitely a great decision. You are always supported by the company, even when you move on from the placement. The application process is simple, and the help that you get during the visa process from both Impact Teaching and your school is invaluable, as it isn't always easy. During the training, you get to meet some great people that will become close friends, giving you more opportunities to travel around China. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to move abroad to teach.
