Q: Has anyone recently been asked to complete a foreign expert assessment?

I've been asked to complete an online assessment (something to do with safea) to prove my qualifications as a foreign teacher.  Is this something new?  I've not been asked to do it in the past five years.

Oh I see, cheers.  Looks like a pretty bogus test--just to weed out the freaks, I suppose.

Yeah, loads of psychological questions, and you get score in the end. But, it's not bogus. It's accessible online, I think. I had to fill it up over Tianjin SAFEA's building computer. I wasn't ever asked to complete it again.

No, that was in 2011 or 12. I'm in Henan currently.

Yes it is required for all new teachers in the company I work at. That is in Tianjin too. Not sure about outside of Tianjin but I am sure there are some other cities using it. I don't think you can fail it unless you are some kind of nut job.

A:Teaching English in China Requirements for 2022 (chinabyteaching.com) This link will answer your visa questions. There is NOT a requirement for two years experience to be a teacher in China.  If you come with your husband under a different visa, make sure you have all the required documentation to get a Z visa when you find a job in China. It will make your life much easier.  To work in China, you MUST have a Z visa and only a Z visa.  -- nashboroguy
