SHENZHEN (AND SUZHOU!) - Public Schools and Kindergartens, Starting in Fall 2019! Western Recruiter

With all the amenities provided, and the ease of Shenzhen, this route is like a gentle introduction to ESL in China. In Shenzhen, youíll be able to find tons of foreigners and Western restaurants in the hotspots around the city. In Suzhou, you'll find the "Venice of China", a lively and beautiful city near Shanghai.

As a former teacher, Iíve worked in these jobs, and in Shenzhen. Shenzhen is a fantastic combination of the standard ESL life in one of Chinaís most developed and Western-centric cities.

Working in a public school means long paid holidays with reasonable hours. And if you want higher pay or to start immediately, you can opt for a kindergarten or a training center!

Beyond that, we have a well-established support system that ensures teachers have zero issues in China, and that the transition is as smooth as it can be. We even provide weekly Chinese lessons and cultural trips and activities with other teachers! We have a very big teacher network so you can immediately feel involved.

All along the way, Iíll be able to help you with all your questions about China. Iíve been in your shoes once as a new teacher. Several years later, I know both China and the ESL world inside out, having tried out every ESL job type for myself. If you ever need advice, you are free to ask me anything about making the leap to China.

Coming to China was, for me, the best decision I ever made, and opened tons of doors for other opportunities as an international professional. Iím committed to ensuring that it is your best decision as well, and that you are as informed as possible when you arrive.
