English teachers are in huge demand in China and while it’s simple to find work it’s not quite as easy to find good work where your employer will stick to the contract.

There is plenty of TEFL work to be found in public schools and there is an ever-increasing huge demand for teachers in private language schools. Work in private schools and universities require teachers to be experienced and qualified to teach in public schools in their home country. While universities do not pay very well, a position as a lecturer means you will typically only work 10-16 contact hours and accommodation is usually provided on campus.
