Are you interested in seeing the places in China that have appeared on Vagabond Journey over the past year? Would you like to meet the people, observe the phenomenon, and experience the culture that I have been writing about for yourself? If so, then maybe you would be like to work as an English teacher here in China.

I am currently helping a top notch English training center find qualified, native speaking English teachers, so if you are interested in working and living in China for a year, get in touch. I 100% vouch for this employer, I know many people who work for them, and know that they are legit, pay on time, keep their end of the contract to the letter, and treat their foreign workers extremely well.

The pay is good, private accommodation is provided, and your visa fees and a portion of your airfare will be reimbursed upon the completion of a one year contract. As far as work goes, this offer is hard to beat.

The main qualification that you must be a native English speaker, beyond that, everything else can be worked out. Generally speaking, you need a university degree to get a work visa, otherwise you will be doing visa runs every three months — which means taking a trip to Hong Kong or Kinmen Island.

If you are interested, contact me at vagabondsong [at] gmail.com, and I can help you through the entire process — from applying, to visas, to actually getting here.

Vagabond Journey has recently partnered with Star TEFL to offer their 140 hour online TEFL certification course for just $199 — a big discount, as it sells for $425 on their site. This certification course offers plenty of user-friendly material, tutors to help you through the process, email, chat, and phone support, feedback on your performance, and you can complete the course at your own pace. Upon completion of the course, you will receive an internationally recognized TEFL/ ESL/ TESOL certification. You can take advantage of this 53% discount by ordering this course directly from Vagabond Journey. Contact us at vagabondsong [at] gmail.com to find out how.

We also recommend i-to-i TEFL courses. My wife took their 120 hour course, which taught her a lot and has always worked well at getting her jobs abroad. Take a look at their offerings here.

After you have your teaching certification send me an email and I can help you find a good job in China!
