Happy Chinese New Years to all our members and the 23,859 foreign teachers now working in China (down from 29,897 last year due to the PSB crackdown and all the illegal fake teachers arrested in 2017, and those who left to make more money in Singapore, Dubai, Korea, etc.). Still, no matter where our teacher colleagues may be today, it is difficult to deal with daily life and lesson plans without our beloved Internet. Nothing can be more frustrating than having to pay expensive hourly fees for WIFI access abroad in foreign countries because of language or local ID requirements.

We, therefore, are now offering a FREE Global WIFI Access Directory to all of you here at this link and we will update it every three months (sorry we only have 7 volunteers on our staff and they have to answer over 300 emails a day). These International hotspots and passwords have been verified. There are no strings attached – please accept it as our New Year Gift of 2018 which we hope is a healthy, safe, and happy year for all of our traveling TEFL colleagues.

Those of you coming to work in China, or already here will soon discover that life without a VPN can be miserable and equally frustrating with no access to Facebook, Twitter, or even the New York Times. Only five VPNs actually work in China and they are expensive. But the CFTU has you covered. We also will provide you with a free VPN (that works in China) but you will have to log on to Reddit and subscribe to three of six subs and then send us an email at with your Reddit username so we can verify that you subscribed at any three of these subs…

Now, did you know all expats working in China have 15 employee rights that are guaranteed by the Chinese government? Unpaid overtime is illegal so know your rights. See here for more details:

Did you know that 80% of all contracts made with foreign employees in China are illegal and violate Chinese law? Here are the details:

Did you know the Public Security Bureau of China is now verifying every single diploma, visa, and TEFL certificate to purge all the fake teachers from China? See and scroll here for details:

Did you know that about 75% of all the online China job ads are fabricated by China job agents and recruiters just to get your contact info (sales lead) and resume? At least 20% of these ads are posted by identity thieves which victimized 20% of all foreign teacher working in China in 2016. See

Do you know how to tell an honest recruiter from a shady one for free in just 10 minutes on the telephone BEFORE you send him/her your resume or personal information? Read this important tip here:

Did you know the CTA and CFTU have blacklisted almost 400 employers and dodgy recruiters and other scammers since 2009? You can get the complete updated list at

But think positive! You can avoid all the negative news and only apply for jobs approved and registered with SAFEA, the agency of the Chinese government that authorizes, regulates, and monitors employers authorized to hire foreigners in China. Here is the the white list:

In 2017 the average monthly earnings of a full-time TEFL teacher in China was 16,500 rmb per month and roughly 10% in Beijing and Shanghai. Yes, recruiters will insist the salaries are in the range of 10,000 a month so they can skim a big slice of your wages every month for themselves. Read here:

We are a non-profit P2P volunteer organization and since 2010 we have been trying hard to reduce the scam rate of foreigners teaching in China. Below are links to six very important articles. If you take the time to read them, you will make yourself 99% scam proof in China.

What is best and most current China School & Teacher Job Recruiter blacklist and which is most current? from ChinaTEFL

Now you are well warned and armed to tackle 2018 head-on in China and stay in touch with the world! May the new year be a great and safe one for you and your loved ones! And remember our motto… “The Best Teachers Never Stop Learning!” BTW… If you have some good TEFL Teaching tips to share with our fellow teachers, please post them at our website for our 9,238 members to see and use:

The CFTU is China's first and only private labor union representing the 25,000+ foreign teachers now working in China. Visit our platform at for details and join our cause if you agree with it!
