Teach English in China
If you’re thinking of teaching English in China, your timing is great! China is the biggest growth area in worldwide ESL instruction and there is a huge amount of opportunity for foreign teachers. It’s also quite a place to be - a bustling mega country with a rich 7000-year-old culture that’s at the forefront of modernization and the global economy. In the past, teaching salaries in China were lower than elsewhere in Asia, but the country’s recent rapid growth and spiking demand for teachers have led to teacher pay quickly catching up to nearby Korea (where there aren’t nearly as many teaching jobs as there used to be). You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the cost of living in China which is quite a bit lower than Korea and USA. Take a look at how it compares to Korea and the United States. Living costs get even more affordable if you choose to live outside of the two main cities, so consider some of the other locations mentioned below.
