One of the reasons, why you can put a significant amount of money by, doing jobs in Beijing China, is that foreigners get free housing (or a monthly allowance from the school, that will cover the biggest part of the rent if not all). Once you’ve discussed all work-related questions and have got your Z visa, we contact local estate agents and start looking for a place for you to live.

The Chinese capital city is now one of the world’s top destinations for those, who want to work in a changing and dynamic environment and explore Asia.
Many foreigners come to work in Beijing as an English teacher because it’s a relatively easy way to find a well-paid job and discover the culture and get to know Chinese people.
This huge city offers amazing opportunities for both natives and non-natives: there are over 220 educational institutions here, including colleges, private and state schools. English teachers are needed everywhere.
Don’t forget, that since the population keeps growing, new schools are opened every year, so the demand for qualified foreigners is permanent throughout the year.
In fact, one of the greatest advantages of looking for jobs in Beijing and similar huge cities is that you can move here at any given moment and find a teaching position almost instantly.
At international schools and language courses, they can form new groups of students every month, plus there are tutoring positions, etc., so an extra teacher is always good news, no matter if (s)he arrives in September, or in May.
Even though its capital is not the biggest city in China, it’s full of fantastic opportunities for newcomers. Beijing is one of the alpha cities and world leaders in business, finance, and technology. Being about 3,000 years old, it’s also an important cultural center, you can see many historic buildings and beautiful architecture while walking in the old quarters.
Like many other Chinese cities, its cityscape is quite diverse, featuring modern skyscrapers, thousand-year-old temples, and traditional pagodas, old townhouses and futuristic buildings.
Don’t forget about the Great Wall and other famous attractions, like Tiananmen Square and Summer Palace…
One ride on the subway will cost you only 2 RMB ($0,30), which makes it a great way to travel around the city. Plus, all the information is written in Mandarin and English, so if you don’t speak any Chinese yet, you won’t get lost. The bus system is even cheaper, but the names of stations are in Chinese only, and buses are usually very crowded. You can get a monthly ticket for as little as $27.
Admiring old buildings is not the only way to entertain yourself in here – try going to the Opera or watch a real Kung Fu performance at one of the theaters. Nightlife is also present here – there is a whole area, called Sanlitun, which is filled with bars and nightclubs. It’s very popular with foreigners and expats, so if you wish to meet someone speaking your language, you know where to look.
Beijing style is different from many others and local snacks are a very popular gift to bring home from China. You’ve probably heard of Peking duck, but how about Jingjiang sweet pork or Beijing yogurt? The yogurt is a great way to refresh yourself on a hot summer day and is different from Western-style ones.
Living here, you have an endless list of what to do on weekends, and where to go, and what places to visit abroad, because it’s so much easier and faster to go to South Korea, Japan or Vietnam from here. In fact, many foreigners come to teach English in Beijing, just because it’s a couple of hours away from other great Asian destinations, and it’s a chance to travel cheap and fast during their contract.
Even though apartments here are quite expensive (compared to some other regions), you can easily afford a comfortable living, teaching English at a Chinese school. A basic lunch usually costs $7, a monthly membership at a local gym is about $112 and an apartment will cost around $730 (however, you don’t have to worry about that, because rent will be paid for by the employer).
Living here, you can save money for the future, because the pay at local schools is very decent and you get bonuses and extra cash easily. Plus, Beijing teaching jobs usually let you earn more doing tutoring jobs inside or outside the school, while still getting free accommodation. This lets you save up to 60-70% of your wages, so many teachers leave the capital after one year contract with about $20,000 in their pockets. However, many of them sign new contracts and stay longer.
