Head East for an epic adventure in China! With an amazing mix of ancient traditions and futuristic cities, living and teaching in China will be a life-changing experience! First you’ll get TEFL trained with our comprehensive 300 Hour Online Course before applying to spend around 10 months teaching English to Chinese students in Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou.

All organised by our trusted in-country partners, your internship includes a placement in a reputable school, accommodation and support whilst you’re there. Whilst in-country, you’ll be earning a good monthly salary, which means that along with free accommodation and weekday meals, you’ll have plenty of spending money left over to explore the place you’ll be calling home. What’s more, on successful completion of your internship, you’ll be handed a bonus of 1 month’s salary – the perfect way to fund future travels.

The beauty of applying for our free China internship is that everything’s sorted for you – as well as ongoing teaching and personal guidance, our in-country partners offer social support, as you arrive with a whole group of like-minded teachers doing exactly the same thing as you! Our orientation in Beijing is the perfect place to get to know your fellow TEFLers, and it’s likely you’ll be living with some of them in the accommodation provided. A ready-made TEFL squad!

Getting there

Touch-down in Beijing! When you arrive into Beijing airport, our friendly partners will be there to meet you and transport you back to the hotel, where you’ll stay for the next 2 nights.

TEFL students in China

Your trip begins!

After a good night’s rest, the day will start with a brief introduction, followed by a city tour to get your bearings, before you’re all treated to a delicious welcome meal!

You’ll be with fellow teachers all day, so grab the opportunity to get chatting and make friends – you might make a travel-buddy out of it! The next day you’ll be transported to your accommodation and school - the place you’ll call home for the next few months!

Remember, your 300 hour TEFL qualification included in your Course & Internship package will mean you're totally equipped for the classroom, boosting your confidence and preparing you for the first day at your new school.

Your teaching experience

You’ll be teaching in a school in either Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou - three of China's most incredible cities. Living and teaching here for around 10 months (depending on which placement you get) means you'll get to experience the real China!

Your role will involve working with students either in training centres or schools. The class sizes here are larger than home, with 40-50 students in schools and 20-30 in centres – but don’t worry, whatever size your class, you’ll feel totally prepared with your TEFL training!

You’ll typically be teaching a full time schedule of around 20-25 face-to-face hours a week, with the rest of the working day assigned to planning lessons and other teacher duties.

You’ll be earning a good salary of 8,000RMB per month, and with free accommodation and school day meals, you’ll have plenty left over for days off and all the best Chinese food!

Throughout this time, our partners will be on hand to provide 24/7 remote support just in case you need them, so don’t hesitate to call on their insider knowledge!

 

After teaching

Your placement has flown by and you’ve finished your contract – sad times! But, don’t worry, if you totally fall in love with teaching in China (which you will!) once your contract ends, you’re free to re-negotiate your contract directly with the school. Plus, you’ll get the equivalent of 1 month’s salary as bonus on completion – the perfect start for a future travel fund?
