I don't have any teaching experience, can I still apply ?
Yes, of course! Pretty much no one who applies has teaching experience. However, please let us know if you are already qualified and we can speed the process up a little. You will gain all the skills you need to help you feel confident standing in a classroom from your TEFL course and Beijing Summer Camp. As long as you have a bachelors degree we can help you with the rest.
Will I be able to save money?
We have worked on getting everyone a high salary as part of the package and you will definitely be able to save money each month. That being said, it completely depends on your lifestyle! China is considerably cheaper than western countries and you will spend very little on a daily basis. You should live with in your means just as you would when being at home.
Do I need to be able to speak Mandarin?
No, you will not use any mandarin when teaching. Your classes will be based around an English speaking environment. Students in China pretty much all have a basic level of the English language, you will be working on mainly oral English and some written, helping students with new words, spelling and pronunciation. The overall aim of your classes is to get Chinese students interested in learning English. Some schools do offer free mandarin classes which we'd highly recommend, as it will help you out in day to day life.
I've never lived abroad, will I find it difficult to adjust in China?
We believe that with the guidance from both The Fewer Things and CEAIE you will transition smoothly into Chinese life. Moving to a new country is always daunting and there will be some difficulties along the way, but you will be part of a wide community of teachers who are all new to the experience, you will connect with like minded individuals during the process that will support and help each other.
If you still have some questions that you are unsure of please drop us an email.
