Teacher Experiences

  • Outside of school I have been to Shanghai twice, Hong Kong once, and to a place with glorious mountains, waterfalls, and hot springs called Yong Tai.

    Sam Martin, Fuzhou, 2016
  • 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.

    Jack Oakley, Hangzhou, 2016
  • I have been here for nearly 3 months now and I’ve had the best experience in China so far.

    Ami Raistrick, Foshan, 2016
  • Our favourite thing about China so far is the general excitement of day to day life. The experiences and challenges we face have opened our eyes to a completely new culture and way of life.

    Jack & Louise, Fuzhou, 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.
