Teach in China
Fees Are Lower Than EverA new lower fee of $1,600 makes China one of the most affordable destinations for CIEE Teach Abroad. The fee has dropped by $300, thanks to an increased need for teachers and support from local governments.
By working directly with local governments in China, CIEE is helping schools in their efforts to build national competence in English-language and Western culture. China is looking for you.
Challenge yourself to learn more about a different mindset and lifestyle by rediscovering yourself outside your own culture. Build your resume, learn Chinese, explore fascinations, and immerse yourself in China for five or ten months this year on the CIEE Teach in China program. The Teach in China program offers you the flexibility of two departure dates and program lengths.
Teaching English in China is much more than a trip overseas; it is a total immersion working and living experience which affords the opportunity for intercultural interaction and involvement in a local community. Working in your new school will open the opportunity to make friends in a new corner of the world, all the while contributing to the language and cultural education of your students. Break out of your routine and learn things about yourself—and others—you can't by staying home.
