Q: Why so many foreign teachers are not willing to teach in Mianyang?Just because it is not a big city?

I  know Mianyang is not a big city. I know that the salary in Mianyang is lower than other cities like Chengdu/Shanghai/ Beijing, but the cost of living in Mianyang is lower than Chengdu..... The cost of living has a direct connection with the salary. Mianyang is a beautiful and peaceful city. It is also the second biggest city in Sichuan province. Mianyang needs foreign teachers who teach English, too.  I can not understand.

Well, speaking only for myself:  I lived for four years in a smaller city, Guilin, in Guagnxi Province. After a while, I was really bored bored BORED to tears there and hungered for a bigger, more cosmopolitan city. So, I moved to Beijing.  

Not everyone wants "beautiful and peaceful".

Thats just my side.

I know this post is old, but, man, I loved Guilin!

If I was teacher - I'll probably look for this kind of city Smile

But everybody have own priorities...

Exactly. It is a matter of finding the best fit for yourself, not what "others" may consider "right" or "cool".

I think the main reason is the location of Mianyang. Most expats choose to live in cities close to the East coast. I lived in a small city that was only 6-7 hours from Shanghai and there were very few expats.

I have been to Mianyang, and it's really a comfortable city, and the air seems  just sweet  after all the pollution in Chengdu. But all Sichuan cities offer low salaries, and yes, there is nothing to do, if you are not a fan of sipping tea in local tea-houses or playing majong.

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
