Teacher Testimonials

Matthew G.

“I knew EF as a company before I even started looking for a job. You see EF schools in the UK. Having the idea of a big international company, you feel more secure and confident about the benefits you get.”

Vuyo J.

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with local Chinese people. I’ve learned about the Chinese way of doing things. Beyond that, I’ve worked with Americans, people from Britain, etc. It’s such a “United Nations”. Because of the cross-cultural sharing of ideas and working ethics, I think it’s transformed me for the better.”

Rob H.

“It’s very rewarding to see how students change and develop over time. You can see the children grow up physically and also ability-wise. It’s really nice to see how they get better.”

Frequently Asked Questions

No. We never use Chinese in the classroom, don’t worry if you think that sounds strange, when you do our sponsored TEFL course it will become clear how we do this. Most cities in China have English road signs and English metro stations. Most restaurants have food in English, if not they generally have pictures. Learning some basic survival Chinese when you arrive, such as addresses for taxis and some food is recommended though just to make things a bit easier. In most large cities you can even order food using apps in English.

Yes, although it does depend on your lifestyle. The salary in RMB is above average for China so there’s normally some left at the end of the month to save or to pay off student loans. If you share an apartment with other teachers and eat Chinese food you will have more left than if you have your own place and eat western style food every day.

Yes. Previous teaching experience is not necessary, but is valued if you have it. We will give you all the skills you need to help you feel confident standing in a classroom. As long as you have a bachelor’s degree in any subject we can help you with the rest.

It shouldn’t be too difficult to adjust, we have a community of over 2000 English teachers in China who help and support each other. We have our own social network for teachers to ask questions and look for assistance. Along with that we have organized social and cultural events for our teachers most of which are free, to help them meet other teachers and to understand Chinese culture.

If you have more questions, the best thing to do is apply. If you meet the visa requirements, one of our recruiters will contact you for an initial chat before moving to interview. This is the best time to ask those initial questions.
