Teaching English in China

Posted by tingyun August 2, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi,

I have a friend currently looking into teaching english in china, but unfortunetly he has been a bit overwhelmed even at the initial research stage.  He told me he has found many, many services that find teaching positions for would-be english teachers, but has no idea how to distinguish the good quality ones, or even whether he should be using such a service at all (as opposed to researching them himself). 

Since the Chinesepod community is so great about providing helpful information (at least when I have previously posted questions) I was hoping to get some advice here (and then I'll email it to him).  If it matters, he is a college (and law school) graduate, has no formal teaching credentials, but has experience teaching test-prep courses.  He has no chinese language ability.  He is pretty open as to what kind of school, and where in the country to teach.

Thanks so much for any advice,

Tim
