Program Overview

Program Description:

On the Teach in China – Immersion program, you will teach kindergarten, elementary, or middle school age children. All placements are at private English schools in Shanghai, where your students take English courses in order to supplement their regular classes in public schools. Most of your students will have likely studied English previously and your job will be to improve their conversational English skills by facilitating fun and engaging activities.

Pay is competitive, far more than what a local teacher makes. You can enjoy a comfortable standard of living with any of the salaries above. There is also a contract completion bonus equivalent to approximately one month’s salary that can be applied to the cost of your return airfare.

Expenses are very low, and your income can go a long way, leaving you with funds to explore and experience all China has to offer!
