Q: English teaching for non-native speakers, how much are you paid?

Hi there,

 

I am not a native English speaker and actually I am looking for a job in marketing but.... in the meantime I had a lot of requests to teach English and some income would be nice. I am a native Italian speaker and  I'd rather to teach Italian instead but in China there is not so much demand as for English... :(

 

How much should schools pay me for hour?

How much are you paid as a non native English speaker teaching English?

 

Thank you so much for your answers!

If you're white most Chinese won't care that you're not a native speaker, so go ahead and ask for the same amount as native speakers.

Woah....those numbers mentioned above must be for 1st tier cities.

I worked with a Frenchman in Qingdao who had extremely limited English and he earnt Y5000 mth where some native speakers were earning a thousand or so more.  

Now I'm in a much smaller city and I know a Filipino who earns Y5,500/mth and two men from Ghana who are on Y7,000/mth.

I'm from Australia and I earn Y9,000/mth.  Plus some extras.

 

Your writing suggests to me that your English is as good as, or better than, many of the 'native' speakers that I've met.

What city are you in?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
