Teacher Experiences

We spoke to some of our teachers about their experiences of living and working in China in the hope the information would be useful to you if you’re considering this career step.

  • Opportunity China assured me that the school I was going to was very accommodating and the ethos there suited me, so before arriving I felt quite calm and was excited.

  • Opportunity China are very professional, knowledgable and personable, thus they’ll help you in your applications to schools based on your needs and expectations.

    Elaine Haley, Fuzhou, 2016
  • Opportunity China has been great throughout the whole process, there’s nothing further that I can suggest!

    John Harewood, Beijing, 2016
  • From my experience it has been great. Helping me get in contact with teachers that were already here and also continually checking in after I arrived.

    Rik Elliott, Chengdu, 2016
  • Our feedback is glowing about Opportunity China. Can’t fault it. The fact that we’re dealing with native English speakers, and we can communicate freely and frankly is great. All candidates that I talk to have very positive experiences with Opportunity China – unlike many other recruitment services. Very happy.

    EF Education Centre Manager, Shenyang
  • I like the excitement and buzz that hangs around every street. I wake up every day not knowing what I will see, or hear on my way to work, or on our days off. The food is fantastic. We already have our favourite dishes.
