Indeed, it is, due to the overwhelming demand for English-speaking foreign teachers. This is especially true this year, a trying time when so many foreigners had to leave the country due to the pandemic and then struggled (or decided not) to return.
This isn’t to say that Chinese schools have gotten ‘desperate enough’ to accept foreign teachers with no experience. It simply means there are even more teaching opportunities in China than ever before, for those with no experience.
If you’ve just finished your TEFL course or newly graduated with your Bachelor Degree, China can be an outstanding springboard to a long, adventurous and [a prosperous career as a foreign ESL teacher.
China has always been welcoming towards inexperienced but qualified English teachers
Schools and language centres have traditionally accepted teachers with no prior teaching experience and, in some cases, have even preferred it. Many teaching institutions run their own curriculum and prefer certain teaching styles so training foreign teachers is something they automatically do. Some even offer TEFL courses to potential candidates who have plenty of enthusiasm to learn.
If teaching English in China is something you’ve been thinking of doing for a while, now really is the time to give it a shot.
Besides, China is one of the most lucrative teaching destinations in the world, right now. You can head here with no experience and still take home USD 2,000 a month as a squeaky-clean, brand-new teacher.
That’s not a bad start now, is it?
