I guess the best advice is... keep trying!!   

 

Look for jobs specifically related to your field of studies and experience... Chinese people don't think Indians are native speakers, that's why they don't prefer them. I am tired of telling people that Eng is our official language, and we basically do everything in Eng... but Nope. If you still want to go ahead with Eng teaching, look for jobs in smaller cities. Teaching science is a good idea though... you could try to emphasize on that... maybe it will click somehow. 

 

Good luck!!

Indians have accents. Yours may be less pronounced, but it is always there. Indians and Pakistanis can't make a clear /t/ sound, for example. Parents don't want their kids to learn One, Dwo, Dree.

How about this: to become an English teacher in China you MUST be from the U.K/U.S, Canada, Australia or N.Z. That's the law and regulations as it appears on paper right from Uncle Xi's mouth.

Now, there are exceptions to every rule and you can be swindled, taken advantage of and prostituted should you choose to accept a non-legit job offer from a non-legit employer.

As Karma101 says, Indians and Pakistanis and Africans can be legally employed in China, but NOT as English teachers or those teaching in English.

So, why not try to find a job in the area that you are qualified in rather than face the frustration and futility of looking for a teaching job?

Not sure what your science background is like but your English grammar is poor!

Non native speakers working as English teachers tend to get treated badly, ripped off, or deported. You've been warned...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
