“I contacted Teach English Global after arriving in Shanghai and deciding I would like to teach English. I was quite nervous since I had never taught in a school setting before, but Dan told me what to expect and encouraged me that I would make a great teacher. The process moved quickly and Dan was helpful with every step. He found me a well-suited position with a beautiful school that I love! I’m not sure I would have taken the leap to teach in China if it wasn’t for Dan’s guidance and encouragement. I highly recommend Teach English Global!”

“During what was my hardest time in China, when I was trying to navigate finding a new teaching position before my visa expired, Dan at Teach English Global was my saviour! Dan is amazing, he was extremely attentive to my personal situation, and he listened carefully so that he could match me up with a school that met my requirements. The support, patience and understanding that I received from Dan went above and beyond what I expected! If you’re looking for a new teaching position and want the help of a recruiter, then Teach English Global is the one you need on your side!”

“TEG are the only recruitment agency I would recommend if you are considering moving to China! I had quite a unique teaching CV and I also had a bit of life admin to take care of before moving to China, but this was no problem for them and they helped me secure a teaching position with a school in Shanghai very quickly. I received constant (and reassuring) help all the way through the process and anything that may have been on my mind was answered swiftly and professionally. I can’t thank TEG enough for placing me at my current school in Shanghai, and thanks to them I’m very excited about my future in China!”

“Teach English Global has gone above and beyond for me. Looking for a teaching job in Beijing during a pandemic seemed like an impossible task, but Dan truly made it possible. I briefly sought out other recruitment companies, but none of them were as kind, insightful, or deliberate as Teach English Global. Dan has helped me every step of the way, from finding the best school for me, the interview process, all the way to the visa process. He was excited to answer my questions and hear updates, and I could tell that he cared about helping me through this process. I enthusiastically recommend Teach English Global to anyone who is looking to teach English in China!”

Autumn (USA) - Teaching in Beijing

“Finding a job while you are in China is somewhat easy, but finding a job that caters to your individual needs as a teacher is extremely difficult. I’ve had three jobs since I first landed in China, so I’ve dealt with many recruiters, agencies and schools. However, working with Dan from Teach English Global was an absolute pleasure! He managed to get me an offer that I’m very happy with, and helped me to negotiate with my school the terms and conditions I was looking for. Dan made me very comfortable, and even without his physical presence he made sure that we communicated regularly and helped me transition into my new role! Thank you so much Teach English Global!”

Kea (South Africa) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“When I first spoke to Dan at Teach English Global I was fresh out of my TEFL course with no real teaching experience and no idea how to find work in a foreign country. I first spoke to Dan on a Monday morning and had a job offer in hand literally one week later on the following Monday. Four months after my first communication with Dan I had an excellent job teaching in Shenzhen. Dan helped me through the visa process, helped me arrange my flight, and talked me through the first few weeks in China. I would not be where I am today without his help.”

Brandon (USA) - Teaching in Shenzhen

“When I first looked at getting a job in China, it seemed like a very distant possibility, especially in view of the global situation. Fortunately, I had Dan to help me along every step of the way. He negotiated on my behalf with the school, even managing to get me a higher salary than I had expected. He then helped me through every subsequent stage of getting my new job, as well as every stage of the visa application process. He has also helped with me getting a flight to China, which at the moment remains to be much trickier than usual. I now have my visa, my job, and have arrived in China ready to start my new job and life! Thank you, Dan!”

1. Apply

If you’re interested in teaching in China then we’re here to help! To get the process started, please fill in our application form and upload your CV.


2. Contact

After you apply a member of our team will contact you to arrange a call. On this call, we’ll ask you a few questions about yourself and find out exactly what type of teaching position you’re looking for. We’ll also answer any questions you have about teaching in China.

3. Discuss Opportunities

Following our initial call, we’ll then discuss with you in detail some of the opportunities we have that match your teaching and location preferences. We’ll then submit your application to any of the opportunities that you’re interested in.

4. Interview

If your application is successful, you’ll be invited to interview directly with the school. We’ll introduce you, arrange the interview, and help you prepare for any questions you’re likely to face. If the school requires a demo lesson, then we’ll help with this too!

5. Job Offer & Acceptance

If you’re successful during the interview stage, then you’ll be made an offer by the school! We’ll read over your contract with you, help you negotiate anything you’re not happy with, and make sure you’re fully content before you officially accept the offer.

6. Visa & On-Boarding

Finally, we’ll guide you through the entire visa process, and be there to answer any questions you may have before flying out. We’ll also be on hand to help when you first arrive in China, ensuring your first couple of months in the country go as planned.
