Get paid to teach in China

in 2019/20

If you…

  • are you looking for an overseas adventure
  • want to be paid well
  • enjoy working with kids
  • want to experience life in an amazing country
  • want to make new friends from all over the world
  • would like a FREE accredited TEFL qualification

…then you need to be teaching in China.


  • To teach in China you need to have a passport from an English speaking country or be fluent in English and have studied at a University in a native English speaking country. You also must be a graduate in any subject. You do not need to be a teacher or have previously completed a TEFL certificate.  To teach English in China no experience is necessary.  
  • For some teaching positions in China you do not need to have a TEFL qualification. For others you have to have completed one before you apply. It is often the case though that you can apply without a TEFL qualification and your Employer will pay most of the costs involved and wait for you to complete a TEFL qualification before you start work in China.
