What We Use in China

Section I: Teaching English in China Index


Section I: Teaching English in China Index

Section I spans 20 broad categories comprising 39 chapters that cover everything you need to know about China's educational system, the EFL industry in China, EFL teaching jobs, remuneration, work environment, colleagues, and anticipated housing problems, as well as the various types of ongoing adjustment problems you can expect after a few months on the job.

Each section (A through U) can be read independently of the others, although those new to EFL teaching are advised to read them in the sequential order presented below. After reading sections A through C, you might want to take our Prospective Foreign English Teacher Self-Assessment Test to determine how competitive you can expect to be for English teaching jobs in China as well as how smooth or difficult your adjustment to China will most likely be.

Finally, the Mini-Checklist in the last section is intended to advise you of questions you should be considering when reviewing any job offer and the Comprehensive Summary provides the Reader's Digest version of the most salient points from Teaching English in China.
