Planning on Travelling to China

Unread post by danh » Thu Sep 17, 2009 11:40 pm

Hi TESL Teachers,

Planning on Travelling to China for a teaching job. I was thinking of going in March, possible to Shenzhen in South East China.

Is March a good time of year to go. I realise going during the Chinese New Year would not be such a suitable thing to do.

Any sugestions!

Dear Dan,

Given that you are a native English speaker and have a college degree, in addition to any teaching experience, most schools in China should lay out the red carpet for you. Research beforehand to find a school that will offer you a work visa for China. If not, you will be learning about the ancient art of corruption, back doors, and ultimately, inviting someone to dinner to reach any type of business solution in China.

I have six years teaching time in China.

Feel free to talk to me further on-line.
