First, you should ask yourself how will you find teaching work in China as volunteer. You didn't read any job volunteering vacancies in China, did you?

 

Chinese don't know what volunteering is, so you can get paid work as an English teacher and you will need Z visa.

Why do you think you will need a work permit to work, even though it is unpaid work? Do you think you have answered your own question? But don't worry, nothing could go wrong if you work on a tourist visa. Chinese authorities are always cool about this sort of thing.

Any work, volunteer or paid, is illegal in China, unless it is agreed upon and part of the company or school you are working for. It is just that simple. No working outside of your contract agreement. If you do, you suffer the consequences if caught.

A: One reason for not getting replies out of Chinese employers is Chinese
A:One reason for not getting replies out of Chinese employers is Chinese don't reply with polite note "Thank you for your application! Position has been filled already." same as western employers usually do. Once Chinese employer see they are unable to place you at the advertised position for this or that reason, they just move onto next one. Politeness is an English language treat ... You should act the same, i.e. never stop sending your CV until you don't land an invitation for the interview ... and never mind, you applied at brazillion position. Once, you'll sign the contract with first employer, it's very easy to cancel or disregard all further coming ones. Good luck! -- icnif77
