That’s where one can find enough jobs for foreigners in Zhengzhou, China. While some schools require extra qualifications like drama experience or hire exclusively native speakers, most of them accept open-minded applicants with good accent and fluent speaking, who want to try something new or practice teaching.
However, don’t forget, that you are not likely to teach English in Zhengzhou with no degree as it is now a government requirement for a work visa, but many foreigners get to teach English abroad without certification alright: most courses and establishments offer free online or on-site TEFL training.
It’s a great chance to get certified and save money, while still getting a fairly paid job with bonuses and all the benefits.
Another advantage is that an average vacancy for teaching English in primary schools in Zhengzhou will offer you almost as much, as a position at an international school, so consider this option, if you want to integrate more in the society, interact with more ordinary Chinese children and contribute to the language teaching methods, used at schools.
For those, who teach English in China, salary is usually on the same level with slight modifications for more expensive regions or cities.
In Henan province, minimum wages are around 7,000 – 8,000 RMB ($1000– $1,160), but a qualified specialist can earn up to 13,000 – 14, 000 RMB ($2,000) per month, which is extraordinary, compared to the amount you’ll be spending on food, shopping, and fun.
Is it possible to teach adults in Zhengzhou? Sure!
But be ready for a slightly different schedule, since adults only have time in the evening and on weekends, so you won’t have days off on Saturday and Sunday, and will have to work till 9 pm.
