China is a massive and highly industrialised communist-run country of 1.4 billion people, characterised by huge cities and a work ethic second-to none. Nevertheless China is opening up to the world and Western influences and the demand for, and welcome toward, foreign English teachers is getting bigger by the day, so it’s worth bearing in mind that there is a lot more to China than Chinese food and huge metropolis.
The first thing that comes to mind for most when they think of China is The Great Wall of China, but this remarkable testament to ancient China is only one of a myriad attractions. Beautiful places such as The Forbidden City and rich spiritual traditions also pull Westerners by the droves to the largest and most populated country in Asia.
China offers excellent teaching packages, and this contributes to making China one of the most popular destinations for TEFL graduates.
