No. You need a new visa. If you are in China with an expired visa you have a problem.

If you are in China go to your local PSB office asap. If you are outside China apply for a new visa.

If you are in China, you are in deep shit, to put it mildly.  When you go to PSB you may me placed in jail, maybe not.  Will for sure get a monetary fine of X yuan/da x # of days visa has expired.  Will be given10 days to close  affairs in China, and deported.

5 months overstay is probably going to get you a 10,000 RMB fine, 14 days jail, deportation & blacklisted from coming back for 5 years!

If you are in China go directly to the PSB, they will not put you in jail. They will simply workout a deal and allow you to leave within 10 days. Trust me, please go to the PSB and then you can come back on and tell me how I was right.

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
