Q: Non Native situation

Is a non Native teacher able to get a job soon after the borders are opened?  Or will it be limited to the natives only? Or The situation will remain normal

I second what icnif said above, the rules are the rules, it is what it is.

 

I've heard there are NNS teaching in China, probably not legally but they seem to be getting away with it for now. I'm sure the border situation and the difficulty schools are having getting teachers contributes to this.

 

But change might be in the air. Word is the government is going to crack down on extracurricular classes which will probably hit training schools hard. Who knows how this will play out but if training schools do get shut down I'd imagine there will be a lot of native speakers suddenly applying for jobs in public schools, universities etc and the non native speakers will be competing for jobs with native (legal) speakers which can only make it harder if you're not a native speaker. My advice would be not to even consider working illegally, for so many reasons.

3. Do I need to be a native speaker to teach English in China?

... Candidates need to be passport holders from native-speaking countries, i.e., United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand or South Africa.

1. Your Nationality

You must be from one of seven approved countries – UK, Ireland, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa

China has decided that only citizens from these seven countries speak English fluently and may teach their students.

2. You must be a native-English sneaker

Very much tied to the first rule, and this one makes more sense, right? If you want to teach English to Chinese students, you’d better have a great grasp of the language.
