Dirty Secrets About Real China Foreign Teachers Salaries

Most of us find out the truth too late. But if you have not yet signed a contract to work in China, I suggest you don't do another thing until you visit and read these links:

Reading these articles will earn you about $10,000 more per year working in China. Another teaching colleague turned me on to these links two days before I was going to sign a contract with a shady agent. What great timing!

What you say is absolutely true Polaris. People need to know everything about their teaching gigs before they buy a plane ticket and come here to China. The links you gave would have prevented me from coming to China had I seen them a few months ago. Also here are some good tips for teachers exploring the China option. Be sure to read this before you sign any contracts and before you leave your homeland:

One thing for sure, China is a fun adventure but don't expect to earn a lot of money here.

Agreed with what you guys say, but i think it is also important to know that how and where you find you China teaching job will affect your earnings - and losses. This is what I am talking about:

If I apply directly to a public school or university in China, I don't have to worry about this crapola. Any other way involves a lots of risks.
