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. Once you have completed our 120 Hour online TEFL (included in the total price), you’ll be eligible to jet out to China to join other teachers from around the world. In Beijing, you’ll take part in an Orientation which includes useful information on teaching in China, cultural classes, mandarin lessons, a welcome dinner and much more.
After completing the Orientation, you will be placed in a teaching position where you will develop and hone your skills in a real classroom. As an intern, you will receive a monthly stipend and an end of program bonus.
You will be met at the Beijing 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 Orientation with other TEFL certified interns. This is a great time to explore the area with fellow teachers, check out some of the culture Beijing 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, and a tour through Beijing.
At the end of your Orientation, you will head out to the school you will be teaching in for the next 5 months. 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 plus office hours).
Besides holding a 120 Hour TEFL, all interns will receive a completion certificate and 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! Many of our graduates choose to travel throughout SE Asia after completing their internship program, while others decide to stay in China and start a full-time teaching position.
