Unlike previous recruiters I had contacted, I found the staff at TFA to be extremely professional and easy to communicate with. They answered my questions quickly and thoroughly. TFA were able to find me a position with a very good school in Beijing.

Modern China

English is widely spoken in the city, a major economic hub and home to the world famous Canton Fair. Work experience in one of Asia’s most important economic hubs is a major plus when you return home. In Guangzhou, gleaming modern developments blend seamlessly with leafy suburbs and architecture that is reflective of the city’s colonial history. This is one of China’s best cities for nightlife and there is a huge array of museums, galleries and parks to explore here.

Beijing is a city of surprise and one the world’s most interesting cities. 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. There are beautiful hiking trails a 20-min subway hop from the city and many sports clubs that our teachers take part in. The food scene in Beijing has to be experienced at least once in your life.
