Why Choose China?

From the spectacular skyline of Shanghai to the sapphire lakes of Tibet, China is the ultimate fusion of ultra-modern and ancient, of vibrant cities and untouched nature. Explore green bamboo forests and lush rice terraces, ride camels in the deserts of Inner Mongolia, drink from coconuts on white sand beaches, hike the Great Wall across mountain peaks; China offers every imaginable experience in one of the most diverse landscapes in the word.

As well as a variety of rich cultures and cuisines, China has a high demand for teachers. China is among the highest paying countries for ESL teachers and all of our positions offer competitive, stable salaries and benefits. Check out the types of schools we work with below, and apply today to start your next adventure.
