Paid China TEFL Internship
Get TEFL qualified for life and spend 5 months teaching in the colourful community of China
Fancy joining a group of aspiring travellers and gaining unique teaching experience in one of the world’s greatest travel hotspots?
We can help. If you're ready for an adventure teaching English abroad and exploring everything that China has to offer, this Paid China TEFL Internship is a great option - and you don't need any previous teaching experience! Our internships take the stress out of teaching English abroad - we'll give you help with organising all the boring bits, your accommodation and meals will be included, and our expert team will be there for you throughout to keep things running smoothly. All this means you're free to enjoy your time teaching English abroad as much as possible!
What will I get up to?
First, you'll need to get TEFL qualified. You can do this in your own time over three months before you fly over to China (but make sure you do, else you'll find yourself stood in front of a class of wide-eyed students with absolutely nothing to say - nightmare!). The course is online, so you can study whenever suits you, on any device - it fits really conveniently around your life.
The internship begins in Beijing. You'll fly in, and be met by our team straight away for transfer to your hotel, where you'll spend orientation week. Orientation week is a great chance to get to grips with the realities of Chinese life, pick up some culture tips and useful Mandarin phrases, and take in a guided tour of the city. You'll also share a Peking duck meal with the other interns, and have plenty of time to explore the various museums, galleries, pubs, bars and attractions this bustling city has to offer.
Then, it's time for teaching! You'll complete a five month teaching placement in one of various locations across China, gaining rewarding teaching experience in a local school and putting all that great TEFL learning to good use. Living and teaching in China is a great way to fully experience life like a local, rather than just a tourist. You'll make friends at your school and amongst the other interns, and have evenings and weekends free to explore your city and further beyond.
Once teaching comes to an end, there'll be plenty of opportunity for travelling, or even taking on a permanent teaching role. Our in-country partners are ideally placed to help you find the role of your dreams after you complete the internship.
