Paid TEFL Internship


Teach and travel in this dynamic country which has experienced tremendous social and economical growth over the past 30 years. From the gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers in Beijing, the pulsing nightlife of Shanghai, to the stunning beauty of Jiu Zhai Gou and the rural monasteries nestled high up in the mountains of Wu Tai Shan, China caters to all tastes.

Our 5 month Teach in China program is a great option for TEFLers without a university degree and teaching experience.

Arrival & Accommodations

You will be met at the Chengdu airport and taken to your accommodations to settle in. You will be staying with other teaching interns from around the world, all of whom will be completing the Orientation program with you.


Once settled in, you will begin your one week Orientation program with other TEFL certified interns. This is a great time to explore the area with fellow teachers, check out some of the culture Chengdu has to offer (temples, hutongs, art districts etc), and sample some of the many fabulous cuisines available!

The Orientation includes a welcome dinner and an introduction to your internship program in China. You will spend the rest of the time covering practical living and teaching in China tips, cultural topics and issues, Mandarin lessons, a tour through Beijing, and a free day to explore the city with your new friends.


At the end of your Orientation, you will depart to the school you will be teaching in for the next 4-5 months. The schools are a mix of private and public. Your time will be spent preparing lessons, checking homework, counseling students, taking part in school functions, and conducting classes (generally interns will hold 15 hours of classes per week).

All interns will receive a letter of recommendation outlining the training you have received, and the teaching experience you have accumulated. This will go a long way when applying for future teaching positions anywhere in the world!
