We answer your CONCERNS
We offer these services
We focus on finding a suitable job for each and every teacher we hire. You will be interviewed remotely before you even start packing. We usually assign teachers to English training facilities, but feel free to tell us what you prefer. Once you made up your mind that you do want to go to China, we immediately start filtering and assigning interviews for you. Representatives from a few training facilities will be interviewing you via Skype. We will help you pick the perfect match.
Most of our partners would provide housing to their employees. We filter out those that can not reach our standard, what are left should be comfortable and safe. We require the housing to be equipped with: Wi-Fi or wired network, unlimited water and electricity (just make sure you don't consciously waste them), clean bathroom and nearby shopping area.
We regularly hold activities in weekends and holidays. They will be opt-in, they bill be free, and they will be about nothing but fun. We could visit nearby IMAX theaters (which almost always plays English-speaking movies, you just have to ignore the subtitles), go hiking or bike riding, go shopping like a maniac, or simply sit a relax in a local Starbucks.
We help with VISA
We offer pick-up service from either the train station or the airport, so that your time of searching for buses and taxis is saved.
We hope you can…
- Be brave. We understand the fear, sometimes terror, of going to a place where not a lot of people speak your language, nor do they fully understand your culture, what's even worse, their driving wheel is on the left. This is normal, and this is fine. Exploring the lands is what heroes use to do, and now you get to inherent that legacy.
- Be humble. Chinese culture can sometimes be very intrusive while at the same time, not very good at expressing it. You may have offended someone without even knowing you did so. It is very important that you respect their customs and pay attention to your behavior.
- Provide proper certificate to your abilities. Attach a TEFL/TESOL/CELTA certificate to your resume will drastically increase the chance of finding a job. Furthermore, you can send us a video introducing yourself and why you are more qualified than others. We will evaluate your abilities based on everything you tell us. So do not hold back!

## HOW MUCH SPENDING MONEY DO I NEED?
This really depends on your individual spending habits. Living in China is a lot cheaper than the more touristy, over developed cities of China. Meals in restaurants cost anywhere from 5rmb for a big bowl of beef noodles or fried rice and vegetables to 15-25rmb for dishes like sweet and sour pork or kung pao chicken.
