Shanghai TEFL Program Summary

Spend 4 weeks TEFL training in one of the most famous metropolitan and modern cities in the world - Shanghai! After which, receive a paid teaching job in China.

Shanghai has an excellent transport system, with buses, metro and even high speed rail. For those who wish to stay in Shanghai and teach English, there are many opportunities because English is a sought after language of business. As well as businesses seeking better English skills for their staff, parents encourage children to be studious and there are many language centers available that cater only to young learners.

I couldn't recommend this course more highly. I wasn't sure that I'd be a good teacher (or able to make it in China!), but the people I've met and the skills that I've learned through TEFL Heaven have quickly made me feel like a successful member of Shanghai's teaching community.

Why Teach English in China?

Learn Chinese

There is no faster way to learn Chinese than total immersion when you are in China! It is a hard language for sure, but like anything, it gets easier the more you practice - many people have become expert Chinese speakers.

High Salaries

In China, as a TEFL teacher you will earn high salaries compared to living costs. There is plenty to spend your money on but with the option if being able to save, it makes China an attractive choice.

Explore Asia

Other Asian countries are easy access from Shanghai. Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, Cambodia - all within a short place ride away. Exploring Asia was never easier than it is today!
