Hello everyone, I am 27 years old and from Denmark.
I am currently studying Chinese at Copenhagen University,but only about to finish the 1st year of my bachelor.
I would like to teach English in Jilin for half a year or a year. I would be following my girlfriend who is returning to China for a period therefore it is much preferable if I could find a job in Jilin province where she originates.
I have searched websites like abroadchina.org, and come to the conclusion that I need some luck and or a bit of persuasion if they are going to hire me because at the end of the day I am a non-native speaker, with no bachelor.
It is my impression that plenty of individual students want extra-schooling in English but of course without a job at a real school I have no visa very long.
I have been living in England for 1 year and I have the maximum level of college-grade english with top grades. Salary is of minor importance. I am inclined to send applications to schools even if I am not fully qualified in one way or the other.
Or do I absolutely need something else like online TEFL certificate or taking it in Beijing?
There is one particular school in Changchun city I wonder if someone knows about:
Thank you for any response, any input is greatly appreciated :)
