It's time to talk a little bit, we were looking for a job and an apartment in Shenzhen. When we traveled to this city, We did not know, Unlike the first trip on the contract, в Баодин, where we live, and if I can quickly find a job here. Not every day move to another town, but one thing we know for sure – One year Accommodation in Baoding more, rather than, maybe even a bit too much…
The main thing to know, that in any place there, at least a few good men, that will help you. The first step, I zalez on kauchserfing and sent a request to one of our friends, Boo, who sheltered us in On our last visit to Shenzhen.
This time he could not help us with accommodation, but he was able to ask about a job at one of the schools, which could offer only part-time employment. Further, brief search led me to a completely wonderful person – Fernando! He agreed to take us for a couple of nights and the first groundwork has already been made.
When we wrote off with Sasha, which deals supply of goods from China to Russia, and I uttered, that soon we will come there to live – He generously offered us a free place to live – a week or a little more…
Total, turned, that Shenzhen is full of great people.

I already knew about ychaynasytys and sent a couple of requests from my resume to different schools. There was no answer, but we went, in another adventure called “Shenzhen life”.
In the first two days, on arrival, I learned about yet another useful resource from Fernando, he called shenzhenparty and there is a section with suggestions on the work and the section, where you can place your resume. In Toth wom night, I have written a response to a couple of ad – I got a call.
Демо классы и конкуренция на юге
The next day I went for an interview at the school, she was far from the suburbs to the city and then from there we do not choose, 20 yuaney fees from Gushu (Gushu) station, it is dark, dense forest, where there is no exit. But the way, school there is a large and decent for all ages, from kindergarten to high school graduation.
The next day the agent took me to another experimental school, Not far enabled Mumiёvan (Mumianwan). The location is good, they offered 11 thousands, if you sign an annual contract and 12K for 2-year-old, plus room.
Demo class I conducted after the New Zealander, and me speaking Finn – incredible competition!
Right to subscribe for two years did not want to, one day we decided to look at the apartment, which was offered to stay and it was just a horrible little room, small and without a kitchen, i.e., we just need to think where to rent an apartment. We were waiting for confirmation, that the employer will be more housing options, but after a day it turned out, that position with a salary 11 thousands have already left.
The only option, they could offer was a work in “normal” Department. At the same load and work as the International Department, salary there would be 10 thousand yuan a month.
I sent another response to the announcement and waited, agents told me, they need Only Nate speakers and if the competition, I saw, in this somehow, was believed. No one cared experience, many only a passport Give, Well here will object, Americans and other neytivy definitely come here willingly, Cem north, why trouble finding teachers from local schools less, but still there is a place for all the other. When schools understand, that all of the new semester dial will not work – they hire happens and everybody.
Usually, agents receive their commission from the employer, they have an arrangement that. But there are some agents, who want to strip more money from teachers, eg – findworkabroad. They place a lot of ads, find a lot of options, constantly call and discuss with you the different options, but virtually all of their ads write, that the salary you will have such a, truth after three months probation.
Actually, probation schools, training centers and other educational institutions есть, but usually it is 1 Month. I found this out, matching similar ads, which are offered on the site and that fayndvorkabroad, I offered to other agents. The same job – different conditions. But if the situation is close to the critical, agents that work exactly podyschut all to many cases, usually they know, who can make the working residence permit, and who can not.
Just, to see all the possibilities, I went to a show in a kindergarten class, although there was little desire to work with kids. On that day,, after a good demo, I got a call from one another garden and offered to come look at this kindergarten. I found one of my requests shenzhenparty.
I went there… and began to work, though not Nate. Our international kindergarten teacher and is from the United States, of Hungary, England and South Africa, Pakistan and Russia. It turned, that children 3 years – is not so bad, 25 children in a classroom – this is normal, atmosphere in the garden is just lovely, and do not be afraid to try new profession!

An exciting new experience. =)
Hopefully salary in the garden too, arranged. I think with small babies in their own way even more interesting. In any case, it's an interesting experience.))
About the agency – not surprised. They are!)
Very interesting. CL rules. В Таиланде, by the way, where are you now, works many companies farang, who spend a TEFL / TESOL training, it is certainly better, than online training and can learn to teach english, is also an option of earning (though not always legal). And in China, is well, and you can legally get a job as a teacher.
Many agents receive a commission from a single employer, they do not try more of the teacher's salary and squeeze the maximum. But, unfortunately, Agents know I do not have, to voice the size of their commission. Both times, the work came to me through agents, but these people are even in the face I have not seen. In August saw the picture, when different job agents tried to bring down the salaries of the teachers in the ads. And for 8-9 thousands a month, they can also find teachers. New Zealander told me, that in that school, where we tried to hire some African teachers (many of which, by the way, can simply be excellent teachers) for little pay.
By the way, not to present a false impression about the characteristics of Nate speakers (all ads write, that they are only) – wages in many places and the same neytivov, and mere mortals. Well, in some training centers and indeed, take only Americans, eg. They can afford it – Shenzhen lot of people coming from the States. And still the topic of requests and the level of comfort: I met the Americans and British, who are working in China for 4-5 тысяч юаней (20 thousand rubles) per month, true in small towns and with more or less free schedule, but for me it was amazing, of course.
Really amazing, that such RFP agree… But on the other hand, people find their new home, live like a local, and perhaps they have enough, times agree)))
Usually have farang, who move to China to work – their Chinese wives and plans to stay on permanent or not this trend?
About Africa – it is not surprising, because in some African countries Inglish – universal language. For example, in Ghana. Have friends there, say simply gorgeous, although with the specificity. =)
Half of my fellow teachers Chinese girlfriend or wife. You can stay for a long time, if the work and the working residence permit to stay here, but to obtain citizenship, kind of like, very hard. No I do know laovaev (here Farang so called)) with a Chinese ID,, most likely Chinese wives get American or even what nationality.
I've probably just a stereotype brought, that's de, Nate speakers go to China to work only in good conditions and wages, but in fact these are all different aliens, and without special requests are arranged. Still, there is a difference, school teachers looking for a more or less permanent job, sometimes even in the ads write, that need teachers – NOT backpackers, who come for a few months and leave on.
Year for the study of China, feasible, we have a little more, but do not regret. And then someone starts: learning Chinese, Business, comfortable life etc. But I still do not have feelings, I'm here I want to spend my life.
11 thousands – not bad! In Thailand, teachers, foreigners receive a maximum of $1000, but here, truth, and life is cheaper.
What is the general average wage in China? We were surprised by the level of prices during a trip.
Is there an opportunity in China is more or less long and legal residence, provided telework?
Surprised by the level of prices in terms of good or everything seemed expensive? Srednyaya zarplata depended on Goroda – in a big city like Shenzhen Chinese can still receive and 4-5 million yuan in different jobs. Foreigners (in particular teachers), average, twice. I can tell you about the situation with teachers' vacancies, quite a lot of ads seen – it can be 7-8 thousands, and 15-20 thousands (more specialized job, matematiku example of angliyskom prepodavaty). With all sorts of private lessons, some of my friends and at 5-day's rest to get to the 20000. In other areas, too, wages vary. In small towns, how Baodin, where we worked before, 5 thousand yuan a month, plus accommodation – is quite a good sum, Yes, and there is no place to spend it particularly, then there are options in Thailand also have, Only the weather is not so well all. 🙂
Dining with a remote work quite possible, it is now more expensive to do business visas (maybe a thousand dollars a year cost) and trouble with them more. If by in Hong Kong to try to, a long time the visa is not allowed to lately. American friend as much as a year tourist visa given, Russian guys have more know how the visa was the last thing. There is an option to teach Chinese, if the desire is. For the new semester hurry up and go back to university, they apply for the visa for a year too. Attendance there require at least 60-70%, but it is not so much. It turns out you can combine business with pleasure, if you have a craving for new languages and the work will not be idle. The only, probably did not travel with such training.
Expensive, in comparison with the rest of Asia. And surprisingly, what a bunch of Chinese people pay the same money for hotels, restaurants, tickets, that we, Glaze does not morgnuv. Where firewood?! =)) Or they earn a year, and then go for a walk, rvanina?
Yes, Chinese I loved. You say?
P.S. Put some plugin for caching, and then zadalbyvaet anew each time to login.
Chinese are so many, that they can find in restaurants and resorts. In Chinese restaurants, gorge is not so expensive, for 1000 RR can be compacted company of 4-6 people, still remain (as often happens in Chinese). On 10 vacation days per year and can accumulate, but in general – wealthy Chinese are very much, why restaurants with pizza and all the other pleasures of life in the West, is not empty. Group tours to China are not so expensive, but in general the family somehow earn, fold, buy property, mine, invested in all sorts of other types of businesses, и Африку скупают тоже 🙂 и получают какой-то сторонний источник дохода себе. Sell apartments and send their children to study in America or somewhere.
Yes, I called the average salary, and the percentage is less than the rich, naturally. But simply because of the amount of people that lives here, looks, though here they were very, very much. When I arrived for the first time, also thought, they ofigeli cheap China and where all? Well, gradually, on the net and soйdёt, if not, that in some cities it is long gone, and the old idea we have left.
We tried to speak Chinese, can ask the way, in the shop to purchase, travel somewhere. Read bad still, little engaged with the characters, but do not throw this thing. We've been here a year, already know something and it's not bad. But if you spend only six months learning Chinese, progress would be incredible.
Plugin cache policy, we should like, can zaglyuchil. And maybe while I claimed the first data is not moved up comments. By now it should be all right.
Invited to Shenzhen English teacher (I have a teacher education).
Offer low sn.
Whether to accept the 8000 yuan?
This is my first experience in China.
Good afternoon, Alexey! We also, when going to go, still trying to find out, as sn, we were offered, adequate. You can see the approximate Prices on Life in China, we wrote, may be easier to estimate. This salary is highly dependent on the province and the city, where you will live. let me know, to go to work, then it will be possible to evaluate. In a small town, this can be very good money, and in big cities like Beijing, to this RFP would be good to, given to a room or apartment to stay. Write also, We offer accommodation for it or not.
Forgive my inattention. You once wrote, Shenzhen… This is clearly not enough, If housing is not provided. If you provide, it must be really good, because it is possible to find variants of and behind 10, and a million yuan in.
Hello!I would like to go to Shenzhen to study and work help
Good afternoon, CENTURY!
To make your wish come true, to begin to better define, you are going to, всё-таки, study or work. You can start by browsing through the websites of universities in Shenzhen, eg: http://lxs.szu.edu.cn/lxshome/Level2.do?flag=in_szu&fpage_id=299 – сайт Shenzhen University, Admission Procedure, prices for Russian and English (if some sections do not find there). Range of training, I think on the subject of education in Chinese universities is full of specialized forums and groups “vkontakte”. About options work, I again advise Websites: echinacities, Section classifieds and the same partition on the shenzhenparty. If one of my friends will recruit, we will try to do on the site separate announcement. Success!
Good afternoon. Prompt,please, Do you have any information about any of AGC, They offer assistance in finding employment in China,but mainly in Beijing. And I was more interested in Shenzhen ,whether to get a teacher through an agency or you can manually. I hope for your wise counsel. Thank you)
Good afternoon, Daryl! We have found the work themselves, but a link in our device and so were agents. Personally with them, we almost did not communicate – First we immediately threw a school, in SHZH I tried to find options through a single agent, and the other end, third agent threw me the option to kindergarten, and her husband took me for an interview. Nothing wrong with no agent, our kindergarten teachers has long been only through an agent, they themselves why the ad is not spread. Do not be surprised, if you see the advertisement on the websites of the proposal, that will take you to the intermediaries – It is common practice in China. Main, that these agents did not take part of your salary (as findworkabroad) or does not offer you the worst conditions, than the school itself (опять же, adding the difference in his pocket). If you find a decent offer, salary, which you want, it does not matter, whether it is through an agent or school you will work directly.
We can not say anything about the company you specified, because through such agencies work not found. All offers, where for, podyschut you work more and have to pay, we have not considered. Look for ads on sites, to find options it is possible to, We laid out a list of key resources, where all foreigners looking for a job in Shenzhen. If there is no other hope, then we can and services such agencies try. Success!
Expensive time of day!
Prompt, please, when usually, the Chinese school actively start to fuss about English teachers – spring, summer or fall? In winter, they have there own new year and they are not to teachers of English, I understand. Thank you in advance.
Kind, Serge! Straight this seasonality is unknown, know, that under the new semester in secondary schools and gardens of people willing to take the, to have someone to conduct classes on the first day of classes.
In the training centers need people all year round and you can be happy to take at any time, even in summer, spring, in winter… During the new year, most enterprises in China is not working, it is therefore possible, that the interview may be postponed for a couple of weeks, otherwise, No special features.
Please tell me, Is it possible to get a work visa, if you have not turned 24?
Respected, Zhuk, If you want to work as a teacher or a specialist in manufacturing, it is unlikely that this can be done legally. Actors must do.
Подскажите реально например найти подработку тренером по баскетболу в школах или тренинговых курсах, английский немного знаю.
В Китае баскетбол любят, у нас рядом с домом на Баоань Стадионе всё время играл народ на площадках. Всё новое будет пользоваться спросом, смотря как вы это продвигать будете, любые уроки, будь то ролики или игра на гитаре с обучением на английском будут восприняты с интересом, только смотря как вы сможете это рекламировать.
Можете попробовать в поиграть по всем площадкам по городу, больше информации появится, знакомства завяжутся, чтобы вы могли далее предложить обучение, можете в клубах спортивных поспрашивать. Главное препятствие, probably, незнание английского многими китайцами, но думаю возможность такого преподавания тоже есть.
Hello. Помогите советом… я с мужем в августе переезжаем жить в шенчжень, у нас бизнес виза на год. Переезжаем с целью изучать китайский и работать. Я учила англиский язык полтора гьда в России. Практики за рубежом не было. Уровень у меня разговорный, средний. Могу ли я претендовать на должность преподавателя , возможно даже за очень низкую зарплату. Может быть в детском саду например. … высшее образование у меня есть, но не педагогическое… посоветуйте пожалуйста. .
Anastasia, скорее всего вам предложат подобную работу в детском саду, но без официального оформления – у вас же уже есть бизнес виза на год. Попробовать такой вариант работы стоит, возможно вам понравится, вы будете чувствовать себя увереннее и договоритесь о нормальной зарплате. Мне рассказывали о случаях, когда иностранцам платили просто за то, что они светили в классах своим иностранным лицом. Я к этому никого не призываю, куда комфортнее себя чувствуешь, когда обладаешь определёнными навыками.
Tell, а нет у вас статьи, где вы описывали свой опыт демо-классов?
Я еду на должность преподавателя англ в нач. классы и очень боюсь, что не подойду. Я обычно работала со взрослыми, а тут мне кажется, что детям будет скучно и я вообще с ними не управлюсь.
Конкретной статьи на эту тему не было, но вы можете найти полезную информацию в статье: Английский язык с малых лет. Generally, на видеохостингах, пока у вас есть возможность смотреть видео на хорошей скорости, можно накопать довольно много видео на тему игр с детьми в классах, добавить в свой арсенал. И карточки со словами и картинками – это лучшие друзья учителя.

Hello! Возможно ли помочь в поиске работы человеку с инвалидностью? Нужна работа в Гуанчжоу или Шеньжене НЕ связанная с передвижениями. Знание китайского языка имеется (в Китае закончен университет по изучению языка)
