Q: Can I be lucky by getting employed as non native English teacher in China?

I am a Moroccan English teacher having a bachelors degree in English language, linguistics major with the advantage of having two years of experience. I am looking forward to moving to China ASAP to teach English for kids.

See Icnif77's answer: To legally teach as a non-native, you must either have a passport from one of the recognized NE countries, have a degree from one of the recognized NE countries, or be a certified subject teacher in your home country.   
 

Be careful, there are many scammers and dishonest people who will claim to be able to "help" you with getting a legal visa, but the above mentioned conditions are the only way that it's possible for you to LEGALLY work as an English teacher.

You as a Morrocan passport holder don't qualify for the English teaching position in China, no different than in the most countries around the world.

 

For such position, one must hold passport from Big-5 (or 7) native English speaking countries.

 

UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, S. Africa passport holders are entitled for LEGAL working permit in China.

 

Another way for non-native English speaker/passport holder (as you!) to land a legal job as an English teacher in China is "applicant must hold BA completed in native English speaking country..." listed above.

Many employers in China aren't aware of that possibility, so one should mention that to the potential employer.

 

If your English speaking isn't too accented, you will most likely get an assurance from the employers in China that they can sponsor legal documents necessary for work in China, which will in the end turn into the offer of illegal work.

 

Under no circumstances, one should accept such an offer!
