TEFL Beijing | TEFL China

Having hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics, Beijing has been transformed into a model of Chinese modernity and offers visitors a taste of the country's urban essence like no other metropolis can. English teaching jobs are abundant throughout the city and those having earned their TEFL certificate with ITTT are guaranteed meaningful employment here or elsewhere around the country.

Brimming with culture and history, Beijing is one of a few Chinese cities to have retained a large number of its cultural relics. The Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Summer Palace and the ancient Qianmen area have all remained culturally intact and provide a fascinating glimpse into the past of this rapidly modernizing country.

While daytime Beijing offers visitors a wealth of cultural attractions to experience, the nightlife in this great city can also be full of adventure and surprise. With diverse activities from the Beijing Opera and martial arts displays to pubs, clubs, dance venues and concerts, Beijing holds something for all tastes. With friendly, curious and helpful people offering a warm welcome and a friendly smile, Beijing truly is a superb location to take a TEFL course in China.

  • What travel documents will I need for china?


    This information is specific to your country of origin but most people will need a tourist (L) visa for attending this course. For the most accurate and current information regarding travel documents for China, please contact your nearest Chinese consulate. There is also a very good chance that all the information you require (application documents, application fees, duration of processing documents), is available on the consulate’s webpage.

  • What is the course schedule?


    The first class and general orientation will take place on Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. The full course schedule will also be provided at this time. Sessions generally run between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. with appropriate breaks throughout the day. In the morning the students will learn methodology and teaching techniques, while in the afternoon there will be teaching practice and feedback sessions.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?


    We use local Chinese students for the trainees’ teaching practice. Chinese students are very keen and enthusiastic and because we don’t charge them to attend, all students come to classes purely because they want to.

    Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will also receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Who usually attends the course?


    The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?


    For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?


    Please be sure to arrive on the first day of the course with a notebook and a pen. We also encourage you to bring a laptop as we have Wi-Fi at the training center. We will provide all course materials for you so there is no need to bring anything else for the course itself.

  • How will this course help me get a job after my training?


    Beijing is the only course in our system that guarantees job placement. We can do this in Beijing because the demand for teachers in China is so high and we have so many great contacts coming to us looking to hire our newly certified teachers.
