Q: Hello, can I get a job as an English teacher in China as an Iraqi English speaker?

I am proficient in English and have a bachelor's degree in English language and literature from an Iraqi university. My English accent is distinctly British.

What about Botswana, same thing for me but I'm from a neighboring country to South Africa and also English natives

icnif77:

No, you aren't! You are only Botswana native ...

Only passport holders from UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and S. Africa are considered native English speaking 'cause primary language in those countries is English.

You wouldn't be able to teach legally, Chinese visa rules require English teachers to be from one of a small handful of countries and sadly Iraq isn't one of them.

 

If you could enter China (borders are closed at the moment) you might be able to get a job teaching but you would be working illegally, that's never a good idea.

Not in China or anywhere else for that matter as a non-native English teacher. Most of the countries around the world require foreign English teacher holds passport from one of the native English speaking countries, as UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or South Africa.

 

You could try your luck with English teaching in Turkey. I was there from 2018 - 2021 and I met many English teachers from Iran, so if you can secure Turkish longer stay permit, you could try there.

 

Good luck!
