Teaching English in China: Tips to Help You Prepare for the Challenge

Teaching English overseas isn’t as easy as it was in the past, but this doesn’t mean that there are fewer opportunities for those who want to have a career in teaching ESL. Compared to a couple of years ago, being a native speaker of the English language does not automatically qualify an applicant for the job anymore. This is good news for non-native speakers because they now have an equal opportunity to work as English teachers abroad for as long as they have the qualifications required by institutions like China’s Birmy International English School.
