China holds endless opportunities for teaching English abroad. Although teaching in China offers generous pay and lucrative benefits, it is, perhaps, the lure of ancient history and fascinating cultural experiences that draws linguistic adventurers to teach English in China. Teaching jobs in China are to be had with private language schools, private international schools, public schools or Baccalaureate programs.

When you are not actually teaching in China, you could be touring the Great Wall or exploring the Forbidden City. From urban centers with all that modern living has to offer to rural landscapes dotted with ancient temples and palace ruins, take your pick and get started teaching English in China.

Apply with ESLstarter, experts in TEFL recruitment, and teach English in China.
