Hello all my name is Vincent i am 26yo and come from France.
I just returned from a 6 weeks volunteering project in Xi'An,China.
Helping with basic education of autistic children.
I enjoyed my time in china and was wondering what were my chances,as a non native speaker with only a TEFL (which i plan to get very soon) to find any type of english teaching jobs in Asia..
I already know that my skills would be too limited in order to teach in universities or such,so i was thinking about lower grades/lower age students.
For the basics of english i assume.
Even though i am not teaching in France.
I did not graduate from high school in france back then (1 year missing)
But having spent a year in the USA and a year in London i do believe i have a strong english,at least for a non native.
I met a Texas native teacher in XI'An who told me i shouldnt have a problem finding jobs,but i also heard from local english teachers that being a non native speaker it could get pretty difficult..
So,will i be able to find a good working conditions in asia ?
or am i doomed to the worse jobs anyhow?
(i am mostly interested by cities over country side towns)
Thanks in advance
