China Link ESL, China’s #1 TEFL Job Service, with nearly a decade of ESL industry experience connecting teachers with the top schools and universities across China. Recently, China Link ESL released a statement explaining why being TEFL certified is of great benefit to a teacher looking to teach English abroad in China.

Since schools in the United States and Europe would not hire a teacher without certification, China is no different. China has learned that hiring untrained teachers from abroad is ineffective and non-productive.

It only makes sense being TEFL certified. The two most important aspects of TEFL certification is how to manage a classroom and learning that speaking English and teaching English are very different and must be learned to perform in a professional setting to non-native English speakers.

The English language is very confusing, so being properly prepared for how to adjust to the learning environment of a foreign country makes the experience so much more enjoyable for both the teachers and the students. Therefore, it’s a win-win.

In order to obtain a work (Z) visa in China, the school or university will register the teacher as a “foreign expert.” Which cannot be done with proof of a Bachelors or Masters degree, some relevant teaching experience, and also being a native English speaker which goes without saying.

The process to teach abroad has never been simpler. China Link ESL helps teachers organize all the necessary paperwork needed to obtain a legal work (Z) visa, travel and housing accommodations. We help facilitate paid training for all positions.

But then I got a message about working in China. I spoke with Brian first who was so informative and helpful with details about the job. Furthermore,Anita and Brian,were so patient and considerate about me every step of the way. I’ve just moved to Xuzhou andI’m already making friends!
