26 Week Teaching Adventure in China

This is a 26 week programme which offers the chance to earn a TEFL qualification, learn mandarin and get a monthly allowance by teaching English in a Chinese school. 


The programme

Before you head to China, you will complete the online component of your TEFL (included in the price). Once in China, you start in Beijing with a group of like-minded participants and tour some of the great sites of the city - including the iconic Great Wall of China. The group will then travel to Harbin, in the north, to embark upon a 10 day teaching course with real life classroom experience. During this time, you will be enrolled in Mandarin lessons. There is also the opportunity to take tai chi lessons and try your hand at caligraphy.

Following the completion of your course, you will then begin your 4-5 month job as an intern teacher. There are positions in kindergarten/ pre-school, primary and secondary schools and we always try to meet your preferences. There is a completion bonus and higher allowance for those completing the full internship contract.
