In my experience, unless you are a native English speaker you have almost no chance been hiring for teaching English in China. It's bad but it's true.


Some schools in less develped parts of China may hire you, but only if they can't get a real English speaker (Native English speaker) to work there! Why learn English from a none native speaker? They have many none native English speaking Chinese teachers here in China!!!!!

The whole idea of none native English teachers comming to teach their "own versions of English", I have met many none native (none Chinese) foreign teachers and often they do speak good English, but often with many small mistakes.... and those mistakes they then teach the children here!

In China it is a little strange to bring none native English speakers to teach children a language and I would say not good for children to learn from, as you will even at best only speak good English and not perfect English, so why not employ a Chinese English teacher?

I think working in Jiangsu has been a great opportunity. I have worked here for over four years as a University teacher. It has been a great experience meeting many new friends, learning the culture, and traveling. Changzhou is a great city, many opportunities and great resources. Without a doubt it is perfect location, half-way between Nanjing and Shanghai. It has grown tremendously in the last four years, lots of good restaurants (many Western), great transportation, and a great shopping. If you visit China, which you should, also visit Changzhou. :)

I was born here and I am doing an orphanage visit. I am enjoying it very much. I am going to be sad when I must leave. :)

Coming to Yancheng to work as GM for USA factory

Postby treatme » Wed Mar 07, 2012 11:51 am

Hi

I will be coming to live in Yancheng in the next couple of months to work as the general manager in a large factory.

I was wandering what there is to do in Yancheng, can I buy western food items in supermarkets?

Are there many foreigners there and is it easy to meet people. I speak some Chinese and can hold a conversation

Most of expatriates living in YC are Korean people working for a Korean auto factory.

Anyone else around here? Fancy a beer one day?

I'm not sure this poll writer understands what "spare time" means.
