Yeah, must be you. Teachers are in short supply in this part of the world.

Sorry. I must have taken the one and only job that was available there. I begin in September. But, you can have my old job here in Shangrao.

I'd love to here more about YOU for a little context to this question.

ljm148:

Sure. Well I am a young male and only graduated with BED last year. I am doing a 6 month internship programme teaching kindergarten children at the moment. I'm trying to find a job so I can get a new visa and don't have to return home to NZ haha. I lack post graduate experience and I think that is the main problem

What dongbeiren said. Tell us a little about yourself. Maybe we could point out where you are going wrong?

ljm148:

Haha where i'm going wrong.. Well maybe because I am a freash graduate from a BED last year. I'm doing a 6 month internship teaching at a kindergarten, but think the problem is, I am lacking in experience :/

What you lack in experience can be compensated for with bullshit, ballsiness and the right attitude. First convince yourself you are an amazing teacher. It will then be easier to convince others.

A: They're saying you should be in China already because entering China i
A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
