Yeah for sure, it was pretty much heaven on earth ;o) Guaranteed good time.
You're gonna be in Xingtai soon? We should meet up! :)
Heyooo! Thanks! Yeah that was taken in Maya Bay, Thailand. Amazing! Cant wait to go back...soon....
Hi there, I was looking at a few of your posts and you said you only had a TEFL and no degree but it was still easy to get a job teaching English. Can you suggest some sites where I could find jobs?
Oh, one more thing.. How will we be offered interviews, would we simply respond to job E-Mails and hope for a reply? Will we be required to travel there or can we simply do it over skype, phone, etc.
Thanks for any advice.
Victors is half way between Beijing and Xingtai. Yea, he is a good guy. He'll probably let you get some teaching experience too at his school if you ask!
I've only ever had private students in Shenzhen, never worked in a center or with a Kindergarten, etc. From my observation the centers seem more open to creative learning ideas in Shenzhen then in Hong Kong. METEN English in Shenzhen seems like a great franchise where in Hong Kong they're still very into Cambridge etc (which has it's value). I guess I haven't done as much in the mainland to really compare it.Personally I would look more at the hours required to work and the lifestyle you'd get out of it. I'm in a Kindergarten in Hong Kong, get a good sallary and finish work at 2:30pm. I do a little extra in the afternoons if I want, if I don't want, then I could easily enough drop my Monday and Wednesday job. In Shenzhen or other cities I'm not sure of the hours. I don't have experience in the mainland outside of Shenzhen.
Just wondered are you travelling straight to Xingtai or are you going to meet Victor and Lili first?
What a bummer! I would be going crazy-I was actually. :) Now it's a "what am I doing?" feeling. Haha, it's great!
Aahh!! That would be awesome!! How are travel plans coming along?
Awesome. Let me know when you arrive! :)
