The best part about relocating to teach English in China is the fact we have the chance to travel and explore too! Since arriving in China we have spent all our free time sight seeing around Beijing!
The rest of the time was spent on a teacher training programme at a kindergarten in Beijing, this was gearing the TEFL teachers up for their new role as an English teacher in China. The skills learned here are vital experiences to transfer to any teaching role, whether it is as an English teacher or not.
The areas covered in the teacher training programme
The group found it particularly refreshing working with young children through their work experience. It is also a great place to start with getting to grips with teaching very basic English language learning techniques
Before you know it you will become a TEFL Pro! Just like Salem above!
The bonds a teacher makes with a student is very unique, our TEFL teachers have expressed in great detail how the cultural differences have greatly contributed in making these bonds stronger, they in fact learn from one another, and find alternative ways in expressing themselves to one another. The journey is something they all share; the students learning a new language (perhaps for the first time) and the teachers learning a new culture, whilst teaching (perhaps for the first time).
The TEFL group have finished their teacher training and are now travelling to their new school locations. We wish them all the best of luck and will be sure to keep in regular contact, and of course sharing any news with you all too!

When I was at University I always thought about graduate jobs in China, I never thought for once this would one day be my own reality! This has been one of the best experiences in my life!
