My experience with Teachers For Asia can definitely be described as wonderful. It took them only a week to arrange a Skype interview, provide me with all the information and get me on my way to my new adventure in China. Everyone at TFA is professional and prompt and I feel comfortable asking them for guidance should a sticky situation arise. I would definitely recommend TFA to my friends.

Your new city

When you arrive at Beijing airport you will be warmly welcomed by the school principal (from Europe) or one of the friendly Chinese international teacher support staff. You will be taken to your new apartment in Beijing, given a tour around the area, given lots of practical information to help you settle in as well as getting set-up with your new bank account and local SIM card. There is a great rapport between all the teaching staff. Your Chinese colleagues are always on hand to help you when you need it, both during your initial training and throughout your contract.

Teaching in Beijing

Your focus will be to teach English to Chinese kids in a fun and welcoming environment, with high quality training and orientation provided for all new international TEFL teachers arriving together.

You will enjoy a personable working environment and teach at any one of seven locations in Beijing where our exceptionally well run schools are located. All are in the west side of the city and just a short trip to many nearby parks and popular hill walking trails. For lovers of art, history and culture – The Great Wall, The Forbidden CIty, The Summer Palace, Ming Tombs and many more sights and museums await. The food scene in Beijing has to be experienced at least once in your life. Explore Beijing’s Hutongs for cool hipster cafes, magic opportunities for photography and maybe a craft brewery or two!

Beijing is a special city and in addition to its endless array of places to see, just soaking up the atmosphere of a local park in the morning and seeing citizens practicing Tai Chi is quite an experience. This is an ideal location from where to travel on your time off or at the end of your contract, with some of the money you will have saved here as the cost of living is so cheap. Many of our teachers have explored locations from Hong Kong to Tokyo, taking advantage of cheap flights and some have even returned home to Europe via the Trans-Mongolian Railway!

Places are limited each month. Apply now and David or Michael will be in touch by email to arrange a brief call with you to chat about your interest in TEFL teaching and a bit more about the placement process in general. In the meantime you can find lots of great info in our China ApplicationsCandidate Resources and News sections.
