Decide whether teaching English in China is for you
Be more informed about China and it's English teaching market


  • An open mind


Winston Churchill once said of Russia that it is "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma" in the 21st Century this embodies China- the World's newest superpower- perfectly. There is so much information out there that is not only incorrect and misguided, but steeped in vested interests.

There is a mind-boggling array of information out there about teaching English in China, but the simple fact is that most of it is published by people with something to gain from your decision.

I am a seven year China veteran and have learned from my mistakes the hard way. There are more than 300 million people in China learning English right now, which is around five times the population of the UK, and demand for good teachers to feed the Chinese obsession with learning English is higher than ever. If you are interested in pursuing this adventure then take this course, I give honest no BS information that will help you make a more informed decision.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who is considering teaching English in China
  • Those who want to learn more about this mysterious country

Previously in my career I spent some time as a headhunter, gaining valuable experience in sales and marketing that make me well placed to offer insight into how people can gain their perfect position.
