Seize the Year of the Tiger during 4.5 amazing months living and working in China!
To celebrate the start of the Year of The Tiger, TEFL specialists i-to-i are offering a massive 10 per cent off their Teach in China Internship package, so budding tigers can experience the real China during 4.5 amazing months teaching English as a foreign language there.
Research shows that people often want to head out to see the world, but lack the confidence to make it happen. With tigers known for being courageous, daring and independent, this Year of the Tiger is a great time to find that inner tiger and head out on a TEFL (teaching English as a foreign language) adventure on the Teach in China Internship. And, with 10 per cent off the cost of the internship for those who register before February 28th, now’s the best time to decide to make that leap.
For those who are feeling a little like scaredy cats, the China internship is a great option: interns enjoy a massive amount of support, both before they leave for China and during the internship program itself. When they touch-down in Beijing at the start of the internship in August, they’ll be fully prepared for life in the classroom having completed i-to-i’s comprehensive 120 hour combined TEFL course before leaving home. They get picked up from the airport and have a fantastic five-day orientation, where they get to know all the other interns and immerse themselves in Chinese lifestyle and culture. Then, after their induction, they’re whisked off to their reputable, paid internship in a great school with free food and accommodation.
Niles Erikson, 25, who taught in Hangzhou as part of the internship program, said: “Travelling in China has proven to be an exciting and adventurous journey, and I was glad to have the i-to-i program there at the beginning to give me an introduction to Chinese culture.
“Not only is China a great place to travel, but it is also a great starting point for anybody who wishes to experience teaching English abroad.”
This fantastic opportunity is open to any fluent English speaker who has completed secondary school. There’s no need to have a degree, be able to speak Chinese or have any teaching experience. The next round of internships start in August 2010, so the experience is perfect for school-leavers thinking about taking a gap year between school and university, graduates wanting to gain some experience before entering the world of work, or even career breakers wanting time out to have a life-changing experience in China.
