Description

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

Owner of ESL School and Former Star Headhunter

I am a seven year China veteran with my own successful EFL training school, driven by a desire to let others be more informed about this dynamic and mysterious country and not have their perceptions clouded by the sheer amount of information out there driven by vested interests.

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.
