  • I teach adorable children English through playing games for a few hours a day. This is a new experience and a great way to learn a new language. It’s a lot easier to like in China than you think!

    Luke Edwards, Beijing 2017
  • Our salary allowed us to live a great lifestyle. Savings varied each month due to travelling etc. RMB6000- 7000 on a good month.

    Jon Foy, Mianyang 2017
  • I share a 2-bedroom flat with my boyfriend who works at the same school as I. The location is very good! With our e-bike we reach a lot of places very quickly.

  • I’ve been around Hangzhou West Lake many times and went by boat to the island in the middle. There is also a lovely water fountain by the lake which is very pretty. Baoshi mountain has great views of the lake and the city.

    Vincent Taylor, Hangzhou 2017
  • 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.
