This is a bit mean, but the vast majority of the people who were working at training centers were "white-monkey" edutainers.  

 

Not teachers, so...  No.

Every laowai teacher must have a visa/RP for work in China, which is usually sponsored by the employer/Training mill, so by closing of the mills in China, there cannot be any oversupply of foreign teachers ...

 

Remember, first you must get a job and after that visa for the entry to China ...

It seems as if there are still more jobs than available employees even after the closures.....

Harvard language program relocates from China to Taiwan

 

Wed, October 13, 2021, 11:49 AM

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — An intensive summer language program hosted by Harvard University in Beijing will relocate to Taiwan in summer of 2022, as the U.S.-China relationship remains strained.

The program is moving to Taipei and will kick off next summer with about 60 students who will take eight weeks of classes, National Taiwan University confirmed Wednesday.

The decision was in part “due to a perceived lack of friendliness from the host institution" in Beijing, according to Harvard's student paper the Crimson, which first reported the move.

Every summer, according to the Crimson, the program “would typically host a small party to celebrate the Fourth of July, during which students and faculty would eat pizza and sing the national anthem.” But in 2019, the host university, Beijing Language and Culture University, said it could no longer host the event, Program Director Jennifer L. Liu told the paper.

Due to the borders being closed the answer is, not yet.  Once the borders open up I think is is very likely there will be an oversupply of teachers.
