Having lived and worked in China ourselves, we at Teach English In China know just how scary packing up your things to travel half-way across the world can be. We use our personal experience to deliver a comprehensive service to our teachers, so they feel confident and prepared to make the most of teaching in China.

Since 2005, we have placed over 1,000 teachers in cities across the Middle Kingdom, and built a strong reputation in both the UK and China. We pride ourselves on our quality services that are guided by the following values.

Quality Training

Our comprehensive service includes lesson planning support and guidance, teacher and cultural training, and support from our experienced team and community before, during and after your placement. We aim to ensure you head to China feeling confident and prepared.

Knowledge & Experience

Each member of our team has taught in China, so we understand the rewarding and challenging aspects of it. Our knowledge and experience of the Chinese school system helps us inform and prepare our applicants of what lies ahead and support them throughout the process.


Having been in the business for over a decade and taught in China ourselves, we know the industry like the back of our hands. We use our knowledge, expertise and connections to provide our teachers with safe, legal placement options at credible schools.


Whether you’re a student or graduate looking to experience China, we’ve got something to offer you. Our country-wide placements give you the chance to discover China through the eyes of a local for a time and in a place that suits you, together with a friend or a partner.


We aim to make important information and costs available to you before you commit financially, and encourage our teachers to share authentic, unbiased accounts of their placements on review platforms and social media to show you all aspects of working in China.


We pride ourselves on the strong community we have built and the continued engagement of our alumni. We give all participants a chance to earn extra money through various part-time roles, and organise regular events for you to get involved before signing up.

Professional Opportunity

We want all of our participants to have the chance to develop enhance their skill sets and employability. That’s why we offer all teachers the opportunity to take on roles within our organisation related to online marketing, content creation, sales and program management.

Support Network

We’re one of the few providers to offer a pre-departure orientation day. This event includes useful workshops and discussions to help prepare you for your adventure. It’s also a great chance to meet others going to China and form a support network before you arrive!
