At Teach English In China, we have all lived and worked in China and we 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, ensuring that they head to their placement feeling confident and prepared to make the most of the adventure.

We’ve placed over 1,000 teachers since 2005 and built up a strong reputation in both the UK and China, but those aren’t the only reasons you might consider joining us…

Choose from a Variety of Placement Options


We believe living and working in China is a valuable experience that everyone should get the chance to do for a period of time that suits them.

That’s why we have teamed up with schools and organisations across China to provide a wider variety of programme options, meaning that whether you have graduated, are a student or have completed your A-levels, you have the chance to discover this fascinating country through the eyes of a local.

Our placements vary in terms of duration, so whether you wish to spend a few weeks, months or a year in China we have something for you!

Work with Industry Experts


Our Teach English In China team is formed of passionate people who have all spent time teaching in China. We use our knowledge and experience of the Chinese culture and school system to build relationships with trusted schools and organisations and help find you your perfect placement.

Having been in the business for over a decade, we know the ins and outs of what’s involved in placing foreigners in China and we use this expertise to ensure our teachers are working safely and legally for credible schools.

Receive a High-quality Service


We know from experience how stressful moving to a foreign country where you may not speak the language or understand the culture can be and we use this to provide a comprehensive service, designed to ensure you head to China feeling confident and prepared.

Whichever programme you choose, you will receive our standard service, which includes lesson planning support, guidance and ideas, teacher and cultural training and ongoing help and support from our staff and alumni.

Though we are based in the UK, our service does not end when you reach China; not only can you call on us throughout your placement, but you will also be put in touch with our in-country partners.

With us, you can focus on the logistics of moving without worrying about what’s on the other end.

Join a Community


We pride ourselves on the strong Teach English In China community we have built over the years and the continued engagement of our alumni. Our friendly, experienced group of past and present teachers provide an unbiased account of their time in China to give help and advice to future participants.

We believe that our teachers are the foundation of our success and we attach great importance to providing each and every one of them, both past and present, the opportunity to expand their skill set, boost their CV and earn a bit of extra money by contributing to our website and social media. Whichever programme you choose, you will get the chance to make your mark through writing articles, blogging or producing videos.
