60-years old is a limit for an employment in China and elsewhere around the world.

As a 53 year old, I can attest to your ability to find work in China as a teacher. In fact, I know someone who is into their 60's that is still teaching, with some assistance from the school that honors and respects his contributions to the school. The biggest hurdle for you is to get into the country (if you are not). There is a large demand for teachers since there is a shortage of them currently.

I'm 57. Been with the same school for four years and will be here for at least two more years. The money is good and the work is easy. My advice is to apply at schools in the tier 2 and 3 cities. Too much younger and cheaper competition in the tier 1 cities.

IF you can get a z visa and IF you can get into the country you'll be laughing.

There are anecdotal tales of some managing it but among my friends, none of us has actually met a FOB Tim since the couf hit.

I wish you luck.

P. S. International schools pay well and have short hours and long holidays, not to mention buffet lunches.

International schools in China will look favourable to this Englich syntax:

 

"I am with 54 years perhaps too old to apply for a teaching job in China?"

 

 IMO, of horse ...

They are very similar: 'off horse' and 'of course' ... 

 

Phonetically, there is only one letter difference. surprise

 

I first hear and after that 'see' the letters. That might be unnatural to the most regulars.

In Chinese. I've always mixed 'imbi', 'neubi' und 'shabi'  ... at the bank, holding 'MaoTse-tung' note, trying to get coins for the bus. I was successful only at my third attempt.

She replied twice with 'mayo' ... , so in her Chinese banking world, leader on 10 Rmb note wasn't either 'awesome' or 'loser' ...surprise.

 

Once, I boarded the bus with 'imbi', I had happily thought in my head:

 

" ... my Chinese pronunciation is a blast ...".

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
