Q: Teaching English in China ?Only Native ?

i found an article saying that the new requirement to get a work visa in English teaching, you need to have passport from native English speaking countries, so only those passport are accepted : UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa.

 

Is that truth ? can someone confirm that please. 

 

Thank you so much

It is the same requirement as in the most countries around the world.

 

Your Non-native English passport qualifies you for Working/Residence permit in China only if you hold degree completed in Native English country (UK, USA, Canada, Ozz, New Zealand & S. Africa).

 

I spotted the same requirement in China first time in 2009 ... for the difference of Taiwan, Japan, Indonesia, S. Korea and others, where only 'Native English passport' qualifies for English teaching WP.

Yup, only native English speakers can get a job usually. There are some exceptions of course.

Actually there are lots of foreign teachers in China who are not from the countries stated above. They have have Z visa all the time and are even receiving reasonable salary because of their neutral accent, high educational attainment and teaching experiences.

Most universities and schools operating legally will preferably look for native English speakers.

Going by the book if you have a university degree from an English-speaking country and are TEFL-qualified (and you are preferably, Caucasian) you'll meet the legal requirements for a Z-visa and you'll have no shortage of universities/schools happy to offer you teaching positions.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
