Teaching English in China gives you the opportunity to explore China and other Asian countries on your days off and take holidays like you never could before.

In addition, teaching English in China can be very emotionally rewarding if you take the time to get to know your students and invest emotionally in their lives. In China, teachers are highly esteemed at the same level as doctors.  Whether you’re teaching children or adults there’s nothing quite like the satisfaction that comes from seeing a student succeed because of your hard work and belief in them.

Testimonials

Julianne Ackerman

When I began my search for a teaching job in China, I had no idea what to expect. Luckily, I came across Annette with eTeachAbroad. Not only did Annette help guide me every step of the way, but she was warm-hearted, kind, and comforting. Exactly what someone needs before entering the unknown world of teaching and living in a foreign country! I couldn’t have asked for anyone better.

I was a bit anxious when the search began, because like any other foreigner who leaves home for an extended period of time, I wanted to make sure it was right for me. When applying for any job, there are things we need to consider. For example the position, the age group, the city, the weather, the salary, what is there to do around town, etc. Annette was able to show me a wide variety of options to choose from during my search. She showed me different cities, different schools within those cities, she told me about the weather conditions, she even mentioned what kinds of dishes are popular in certain areas. Her knowledge of Chinese culture and experience with working with students in China is a big asset for anyone who needs tips, advice, and reassurance upon going to live there. She helped me prepare for just about everything.

All of this was only what she did during the search process! She even continued to guide and comfort me when and after I arrived in China. When you move another country you are entering the unknown. It takes time to settle in and adapt. Annette happened to be in China at the same time as me, and she was able to meet me at my school during my first week of teaching to see how I was doing. She took time out of her trip just to make sure we were comfortable, and she even made sure our contracts were legitimized. Even after Annette left, she was always helpful and quick to respond to any of my questions or concerns while continuing to teach at my new job in China. I highly recommend beginning your search for teaching abroad right here with Annette, you won’t regret it!

Annette was extremely helpful during the entire process. Moving to another country is a very challenging ordeal and having someone like Annette on your side makes all the difference. She’s continued to be incredibly helpful even after arriving, fielding every one of my questions and following up with helpful suggestions. She has been a critical part of the process!
