Shanghai is definitely the most attractive city for foreign talent. Shanghai has been ranking first in the "Amazing China - The Most Attractive Chinese Cities for ex-pats" in 6 consecutive years, organized by the Foreign Experts Bureau and voted on by foreigners. Having some teaching jobs in Shanghai are good. Compared to other first-tier cities in China, the city is more Westernized in culture, and most foreigners find their work experience and skills easily transferable. Another reason why foreigners love the city is that it offers a wealth of Western amenities: a large number of international schools, ex-pat societies, Western restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife.

Shanghai cuisine is characterized by salty with sweet, oily but not fatty, whose culinary style received great influences from neighboring provinces. Běnbāngcài(本帮菜), another name of Shanghai cuisine, refers to authentic Shanghai homestyle cooking. Teaching in Shanghai is a good choice. Generally speaking, Shanghai cuisine emphasizes the freshness of ingredients and original flavors. The cooking methods are more straightforward compared to other regional cuisines. Hong Shao or red-cooked (with sugar and soy sauce), stewed or simply stir-fried with ginger and scallions, are the three primary methods among locals.

The requirements in Harbin for recruiting foreign teachers are not so strict compared with tier 1 or new tier 1 cities. However, it is still necessary to have a bachelor's degree to meet the requirement especially when the major is related to education. Schools in Harbin prefer native speakers but as long as your English is fluent, there are still many chances waiting for you. Most schools in Harbin no matter training centers, kindergartens, or international schools would require 1-2 years of teaching experience. The salary will usually be higher if you have 3-5 years or even longer experience in English teaching. Having some teaching jobs in Harbin are good.

China's booming economy is the foremost reason why you should choose teaching in China. Along with the reform and open policy implementation in 1979, China's annual gross domestic product (GDP) growth is steadily growing, year after year, with no slowdown in sight. Many other countries regard China as an economic juggernaut. It is not an unusual scene in the top tier China cities that luxury cars crowd the street, new skyscrapers build-up, and high-end fashion brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel become a common part of the shopping mall. Although the growth has slowed down during recent years, it still creates the economic and population equivalent of another Australia each year. If you are considering teaching abroad, China is always a good option for you. The booming economy provides a variety of positions; but the sheer number of jobs and the rapidly expanding infrastructure ensures that once you come to China, obtain a proper work visa, and build a solid reputation for yourself, more advancement upwards will naturally follow. Teaching in Hangzhou is really good

English teaching in China is highly fragmented. Unlike other industries where one or a few companies dominate, English teaching in China has many big, medium, small, and micro-companies. Big companies are not necessarily the best paid or best places to work. Simply because of the balance of demand and supply, many people who can teach English well tend to get more work coming to them through referrals. English is the common language at both official workplaces such as schools, big companies, and training centers, as well as informally at places like coffee shops that feature English teachers. For immigration needs, a bachelor’s degree in any field, and a teaching certification (such as a CELTA) is the best guarantee to ensure getting offered an excellent full-time job and a working visa. In general, going to a brand-name school (not an online degree) in a well-known country such as the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and having a respected teaching license is the best way to be viewed as qualified. Teach English in China is a good choice

Of all subjects, teaching English as a Second Language is the most demanded field. An estimated number of one billion individuals are learning English right now worldwide through certain means. Within China only, there are an estimated 200 million students of all ages. While the year-to-year growth rate of worldwide English learners may slow down, and high-paid areas like the Middle East, Japan, etc. may lose their comparative appeal, the demand for competent English teachers will continue to grow steadily in the following decades. Consider yourself fortunate if you are a native speaker of English and can teach the subject well. You will be in demand for your entire life. If you are taller, fair-skinned, have a posh accent, are well-dressed, possess a bachelor’s degree from one of the top-ranked world schools, and come from one of the nine native countries for immigration, you will have a high demand in China (and any other country). Even if you fall short of some of these preferences, as many of us do, there are plenty of examples of those who have a well-paid and fulfilling career, from slowly gaining a reputation for quality teaching and social behavior. Teach in China really worth it

Over the last thirty years, teaching English in a foreign country has grown from a field dominated by backpackers, university students on a gap year, etc. into a systematically developed sector where professionalism is mandatory. New as the industry is, there is still a long way to go, both within and out of China; nevertheless, the teaching abroad field has made some significant gains that those involved wish to continue. Better screening, professionalism, etc. creates a better environment for all. Several decades ago, any light-skinned person from a native country could get a teaching job that would pay for his apartment, food, basic entertainment, and allow some savings. While all companies merely requested either candidates with a bachelor's degree, high school graduates, university students, and even those with forged credentials. However, nowadays China has technologically and economically developed a more competitive environment that will not tolerant casual teacher employment, and tends to punishes such behaviors. For example, degrees of candidates can be verified using online services like degreeverify.com or National Student Clearinghouse; teaching salaries comparable to Western countries ensure that capable, motivated, experienced, and professional teachers are competing for jobs. Slowly, Chinese are understanding that championing Western systems of integrity (and practicing such codes), has rewards in ways that taking short-cuts and unethical practices do not. Anyway, Teaching jobs in China is truely a good choice

China and other countries treat holidays very different from the West. Whether you are in a public school or a language training center, you can only take leave on legal holidays. Fortunately, there are plenty of public holidays when your students are out of school in China, and you have time for a long vacation. In contrast to the United States, where ten days of paid holiday is the norm, many people working for public schools are surprised that China has up to six weeks of winter holidays and summers off. This disparity results in an extra four months of vacation, sometimes at full pay. Teach English in China is a good career
