There are no ESL job adverts in Urumqi or anywhere else in Xinjiang. 

 

I've worked in Fuk., Xinjiang in 2012/13, and I've always received my salary. Few times, I had to dial SAFEA indeed, but in the end all was good.

If you'll work in Xinjiang, you might learn another foreign language, beside Chinese.

In Fuk., 40km N of Urumqi, they wash the city roads twice a day.

 

English level of students is higher than elsewhere in China.

 

Add 'Urumqi' in the search above for older threads on living in the city/Province.

You can start with search for job in Urumqi, now. You're welcome.

Pay depends on your experience, Recommendation letters and other things. 

See 'Jobs' tab, top R of this screen. There are no English teaching job openings in Xinjiang since 2014.

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
