Q: Legalized, original, non-English BA diploma degree. Is it worthy?

Hi everybody,

 

Just to avoid confusions, I re-edit my question.

 

I have my BA degree legalized by the Embassy of China. It is in a native language other than English. I also have the copies translated in English and in process to be legalized by the same dilplomatic authority. 

 

Does it help in anyway to get the Work Permit if I have legalized the original documents that are written in any other language than English? Does it help to have them legalized by the Embassy of China, anyway, or I just made a dumb expensive mistake?

 

Thank you for your input.

So much legal hassle to teach English for less money than a burger flipper back home, not worth it. It would be if Chinese employers raised salaries according to inflation, but they haven't changed in over 10 years even though everything else in China has gotten 3-4 times more expensive in the last decade. Be smart, go to Korea, Japan, Taiwan or Vietnam.

No use!

 

Non-native English speaker is qualified to teach English in China only if BA was completed in Native English country (UK, USA, Canada, Ozz, NZ and S. Africa).

 

Native English BA is a must in China or elsewhere for NNES to qualify as an English teacher.

If it isn't from an anglophone country, it is worthless here.

If you're from a native English speaking country, got two years of experience (need proof) and you've got a BA or BS degree authenticated by the Chinese embassy in that country you'll be fine, I was. So get your degree authenticated, by the Chinese embassy from where ever your degree is from, BTW it's not the term "legalized" for China.
