The formal requirement is that you have to possess a Bachelor’s diploma. Apart from this, there are no restrictions whatsoever: you can come to teach English in China with no experience or even no TEFL certificate and just get it on site at the expense of the school (some institutions do allow this).
All in all, it’s fairly easy to select decent Nanjing English teaching jobs, as there are lots of renowned training centers and international courses.
Nanjing, situated on the Yangtze River, is a megalopolis with a rich history and great modernity. Not many people remember nowadays that it used to be the capital for 6 dynasties.

When you stay in Nanjing, China may be seen from a different perspective, you can learn something about its history, visit the Ming Tombs or the Mausoleum, touch the stone at the Confucius Temple or escape to the Purple Mountain to breathe some fresh air.
Of course, why shouldn’t it be?
There are occasional petty crimes like thefts and other unpleasant situations, but many foreigners, teaching English in Nanjing for a few years in a row, say they never experienced any problems.

Locals enjoy eating at any time of the day. After a few weeks living in Nanjing, you’ll know, that most smells in the central streets, apartment blocks and offices are from delicious Tangbao steamed dumplings, popular duck blood soup with tofu and Pidu noodles.
The great news is that portions are big, and spending $5 on soup you can easily share it with a friend – at the end, both of you will be full.
