Schools will often want you to dress really informally, even if (especially if) the Chinese teachers are wearing three-piece suits.

Just keep in mind that you're letting your class turn into a minstrel show, and don't expect the students to learn a thing.

It depends what age you're teaching. If you're working with little kids, less formal attire is fine as you'll be playing games with them and running around. Chinese teachers at schools and universities dress up, so you probably should to. You don't have to wear a suit, but a skirt or slacks and a button up shirt would be fine. Modesty is important also.

In China, sweet pants are okay in normal language schools. If the school is a branch or belongs to a brand, they should wear normal like an hostess.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
