Teach English in China

Teach in China

Program Overview

Bridge is excited to partner with English First to recruit for this unique teaching opportunity in one of the world’s most sought after teaching locations. The Teach in China Program offers the opportunity to teach English in a land rich with culture, brimming with tradition and home to one of the world’s most ancient civilizations. There are opportunities for one-year contracts for teachers with at least one year of teaching experience in more than 50 locations throughout China. This teach abroad opportunity is available at no cost to you since the program fee is refundable after you are successfully teaching in China for 90 days. Best of all, you’ll find the low cost of living in China even makes it possible to save money and explore the region while abroad.

Your $95 application fee includes enrollment in the 40-hour certification course upon program acceptance (you’ll need to complete the certificate in order to secure your visa to teach in China). That program fee will be 100% reimbursed after you’ve been teaching in China for three months. Also after teaching in China for three months you can upgrade your Basic TEFL certification, free of charge, to the full 120-hour Master Diploma, which will help qualify you for teaching jobs all over the world. In addition, English First will reimburse you for your flight and provide an advance on your salary when you first arrive—that means the program is ultimately completely FREE to you!

Why China?

With a population of more than one billion, a history lasting more than 5,000 years and a territory spanning nearly 4 million square miles, China offers the plenty to do and see for the adventurous traveler. From the bustling, metropolitan cities of Beijing and Shanghai, to the amazing sights of the Great Wall and the Yangtze River, you will not just feel like you’re in a different country, but a different world! While teaching English and enriching the lives of Chinese citizens, you will be fully immersed in the culture and even receive lessons in Mandarin Chinese, the earth’s most widely spoken language. You’ll experience all of this and so much more with our Teach in China program!
