Foreign teacher....to see

There are basically three options available in China.

1. Universities. Cons. These are governemnt run which means bureaucracy, rigid syllabuses, teaching methods which may clash with western ideas and, usually, a requirement to live on campus which means lack of privacy and sometimes restrictions on access times, visitors etc. Most universities insist on a TESOL/TEFL qualification but the pay is also usually lower than private schools.

Pros But you have security of contract, you will be paid on time and accomodation is provided. The latter can be a big advantage because finding accomodation privately if you don't speak Chinese can be a problem and rents are rising rapidly in some cities esp Shanghai. and Beijing. In universities the students are generally well motivated and disciplined and already know some English. This can help if you don't speak Chinese although the quality of their previous teaching varies widely and exam certificates here are often not worth the paper they are written on. Many universities also provide free Chinese language classes. These are almost impossible to find outside the universities.

2. Private Schools Cons. There are many cowboy schools who pay teachers late or not at all. Some see foreign teachers as a handsome face in the prospectus or an entertainer and don't expect ,or don't allow, you to teach properly. The standard of facilities and textbooks also varies widely and very large classes are common. All schools are supposed to be licensed by the Provincial Education Bureau and those which are are usually more or less reputable. But this rule is not enforced and there are many dodgy schools. Many private schools also
teach late in the evening which can disrupt family life. They also don't usually have the long holidays enjoyed by university and state school teachers. Many students struggle to pay the fees and turnover and drop out rates are high. Most students have no previous experience of western methods and have no idea of how to study by any means except rote learning. Pressure from managements to dumb down or fake tests to inflate pass rates is common and outright bribery by students and/or parents is not unknown

Pros. Flexability. Contracts are often shorter and part time work is available. Many private schools don't insist on formal qualifications but provide little back up if you find yourself out of your depth. The reputable schools will help with visas and bureaucracy. Salaries are generally higher then universities. The students are usually well motivated and disciplined.

3. State Schools There are companies which contract with the Chinese education authorities to teach within state schools at all levels. I teach for one of these companies.

Cons. Resentment and lack of co-operation from the main stream school system. Pressure to dumb down and fake tests is common. Some students are forced to take these courses by parents and motivation and discipline can be a headache. Formal qualifications are usually required.

Pros. Schools working this way are licensed and generally reputable. Most will help with visas etc and some provide accomodation. Salaries vary but can be pretty decent and payment is normally reliable. Long holidays and reasonable working hours. Facilities in Chinese schools are generally good in the cities (better than the UK) but less so in rural areas. Many of these schools are involved in experimental programmes and attitudes to syllabus design and Western teaching methods are often more open than elsewhere in China.

I hope this helps
