The Best Places to Teach English in China

by Mohimenul Islam SEO service provider

Almost all the countries around the world are looking for English teachers and the demand has proved rapid growth due to the need for English language proficiency. If you have completed a TEFL qualification or already are a qualified English teacher, then you should be aware of this.

Now more than ever, China has extended a huge budget for the education of English in its schools.  Teachers are being recruited from all over the world. English teachers are getting into Chinese schools, earning high salaries and also earning extra incentives. 

There are many cities in China and all of them have a different environment. You can't compare any of these cities to the other. They have distinct features that allow and attract different types of people. Let's take look at the best cities that are in need of English language teachers in China.

First Pier Cities

The most famous and culturally rich cities in China are Beijing and Shanghai. They have temples that are more than a hundred years old. One distinct feature of Shanghai is its huge number of skyscrapers. The city looks like a modern cyber den of futuristic buildings and monuments. It’s one of the most active financial zones in China. The city also has a port which creates more revenue than any other city in the country. Beijing is the heart of China. It's always busy and in competition with the rest of the world. Living there is like a race.  You live if you keep running!

Second Pier Cities

Among the second pier cities of China, Chengdu and Xi'an are the most favored for teachers. Chengdu especially, is rich in natural history. It is mostly known for its Panda breeding facilities and sanctuaries.  Another thing about the city is that it looks fresh as new and has a huge number of universities. Xi'an has a rich cultural heritage and houses ancient architectural wonders.

Third Pier Cities

Among all third pier cities, Changzhou and Jilin have the highest rate of educated people. The mass population is in constant contest with first pier cities. Irrespective of the rural environment, these cities invest a lot in education and English teachers from foreign countries feel honored living there. The cities have a rich cultural heritage. They are built around mountains and jungles. The cities have rich natural resources that play an important role in China's economy. You will earn a moderate salary, however the cost of living is pretty low, compared to fist pier cities.

Which One’s Yours?

As I have discussed the different piers, and focused on the best cities in different piers of the country, you need to take a closer look and decide what your priorities are. You can decide the best city for you by choosing the things you want as your environment or surroundings.


There are many cities to choose from in China. You can find the best one by trying to match it to your personality and choices. If you like modern cities with a busy vibe,  the first pier cities are for you. However, if you prefer off the beaten track and more rural places, go to the second and third pier cities.
