Hello everyone Greetings from China! We are finally back in the classrooms teaching our great but spoiled students and I am getting a lot of emails asking me what it is like teaching here in China. I am going on my fifth year now and I have learned a lot and and making more money now than every before mostly because of the closed borders.https://opnlttr.com/letter/pandemics-border-closures-provide-silver-lining-dark-cloud-boosting-salaries-60000-world-wide

But I also learned to work only for schools that are registered with both SAFEA and SAIC so I never have to worry about getting deported. Visit https://ruqqus.com/+TeachinChina or https://ruqqus.com/+ChinaTefl to understand why this is so important

The lifestyle here is more laid back, especially since we are now back to normal after 5 months of lock-down and on-line Zoom teaching. This week-end my partner and I went camping and trout fishing in Huairou and had a great time. China is a fun place so long as you do not expect it to be "like back home". The culture here is completely different - not better or worse - just different. If you can adapt and be friendly China is great addition to your resume. I suggest you give it a go, but first read this so you don't make any dumb mistakes that will end up costing you money, one way or another. https://ruqqus.com/post/41vy/important-before-you-even-send-your

You may have to wait until the new year for the borders to open, but once you get here, send me a message and I will help get you settled in (if you come to Beijing)

WELCOME TO CHINA!

This is really some great advice. Does anyone have the current 2020 contact info for the SAIC and SAFEA? There are addressed here at https://ruqqus.com/+TEFLBlacklist but no phone or fax numbers. A little help? Thanks.

The SAIC and SAFEA registered TEFL school employers only applies to China, where 30% of TEFL teachers end up working. ALthough yu can go directly to the SAFEA and SAIC websites, they are in Chinese and not easiy to navigate.

To find the white-listed China TEFL teacher employers that are registered in ENGLISH there are only a half dozen sites that are current, some more than others. Here are the ones that I use...

https://ruqqus.com/+TEFL

https://reddit.com/r/teachinchina

There are some expat sites that handle this issue on a global basis if you are intereste in other destinations, including https://ruqqus.com/+expats
