Who Are We?

Here at Teach English In China we all have two things in common; a passion for discovering China’s rich culture and a desire to help others experience it for themselves. Since 2005, we have been doing just that, organising award-winning teaching placements with Chinese schools and families for over 1,000 people.

Our friendly team is formed of ex-foreign teachers who work closely with trusted schools and organisations across China. We connect high-quality candidates with the well-established institutions they wouldn’t otherwise hear about. Through doing so, we aim to help you gain an authentic insight into China’s unique culture and education system.

Having each completed a placement ourselves, we have first-hand knowledge of both the rewarding and challenging aspects involved in living and working in China. We use our experience to deliver a quality service to our candidates. From the moment you enrol to the end of your placement, we provide ongoing support and advice to ensure you head to China feeling confident and prepared and can make the most of this life-changing opportunity.

We pride ourselves on giving past, present and future participants the opportunity to contribute to the growth of our company. Our participants have helped us build a strong, supportive alumni community, providing a valuable information source for newcomers and supporting our value of transparency.

Through maintaining our close-knit community of passionate teachers and a high-quality service, we aim to help an increasing number of people find the perfect placement in China.

Teach English In China are great at preparing you for the transition; having never been to China before, I wouldn’t have known where to start without their help. Once you have a place on their programme, they help you with every step of the move and the Beijing training camp gives you the opportunity to make friends as soon as you arrive.

Working with Teach English In China has been a great experience that has opened so many doors. The support offered is great and staff are always happy to help. One thing that I really appreciate is the opportunity to gain experience in addition to teaching, by writing articles or recording vlogs during the placement. I got involved with this and have done some work since returning to the UK, which has really helped me to boost my CV.

The Teach English In China program allowed me to experience teaching without having to study for years, because all you need is a TEFL qualification, which Teach English In China helps you with. For me the great thing about Teach English In China is that you never know where it will take you!
