Teaching in China

​Hello ESL community! I am Vard from Armenia. Currently, I teach online to students mainly from ASIA.

Teaching English has taken me on a wonderful journey, and I'm so glad I decided to take the chance.

It was in 2019 when I made my mind to start my journey as an ESL teacher.

Though I hold a BA degree in the English language, most teaching jobs abroad require a worldwide recognized teaching certificate. So with the help of TEFL Academy, I could earn an approved certificate by the UK and the USA government recognized bodies, and find a job in China. “China is a diverse country”, - I thought “I may pursue a teaching career and explore the country, ASIA itself”. And I was absolutely correct: a new continent, new lifestyle, everything brand new.

And here comes Shaoxing, a city near Shanghai famous for its traditional Chinese bridges, wine, and a huge number of textile factories and production. I taught English to students; age range 5-14 at a training centre and public school. During my winter holiday, I could travel to Shanghai, a popular tourist destination known for its historical landmarks, many skyscrapers, museums, etc. I had a notable experience reaching the 119th floor in just a minute, and there is the Shanghai Tower, the second tallest building in the world. Overall, I had a significant experience in China, unfortunately, I left the country due to the spread of Covid-19.

Since then I have been teaching English online, again new challenges, facing new normal during the pandemic, but believe me it is much fun. Conducting lessons online is flexible and allows much more effective professional development. I teach students of different ages and backgrounds from Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, and many others.

Teaching English has taken me on a wonderful journey, and I'm so glad I decided to take the chance. So, it is your turn, give it a try, do not hesitate, join the global community of TEFL teachers.
