Talking to Teachers in China

Mark, our ESL teacher from United Kingdom

Mark

United Kingdom
Work and Live in China has a lots of schools and kindergartens to choose from, in almost any province and city around China, and they vary greatly in quality. Before coming to China I had a lot of doubts about salary, accommodation, support upon arrival, or being alone in an unfamiliar culture and environment. And I was happy I chose to work with Work and Live in China, they do a great job helping with every step of coming to China - from Visa to ESL teacher training and onboardings to prepare you for teaching. Keep it up, guys, you are awesome!

The agency is very upfront and honest about things. If they know something, they will tell you. China might not be a paradise to live, there are a lot of cultural peculiarities, and it is challenging - moving to an Asian country for a year where you don’t have family or close friends. Luckily, Work and Live in China do everything they can to make you comfortable. Good job!
