Not legally. I wouldn't recommend working illegally myself... not just for the legal aspect, but also you're at complete mercy of your employer. You have zero protection against them withholding your salary or terminating your employment without any notice. Hell, they could report you as being there illegally, and get a reward.... It's simply not worth the risk (since you could go to another Asian country with less restrictions) 

 

However, why focus on teaching? You can get jobs with schools as a DOS, or other administrative positions until you become qualified to teach. There are plenty of non-teaching jobs in China. You just have to search a bit harder because they're not begging for people the way the recruiters are for english teaching.

Difficult, but not impossible ...

 

If you hold degree completed in one of the Big-5-English countries (UK, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, S. Africa-maybe!) then School in China should accept your application and start with the process of getting your Working permit approved.

However, most of the school's managers in China aren't aware of that possibility, so they'll most likely take easy way out and tell you 'no'.

 

Never mind! Keep sending your CV until you don't get an interview invitation and eventually contract.

You could contact this guy:

He sent me file with more than 100 new job openings yesterday and some of them don't require Native English teacher. 

Good luck!

Very easy. Just show up on any visa and apply for jobs. Most of the teachers here are none natives on nonwork visas anyway. You will blend right in.
