As an English teacher in China, how much do I need to earn (in RMB) in order to save 2000 euros monthly after all expenses? lets differ large and smaller cities... thank you for opinions

Hi there,

I think saving €2,000pm is a little optimistic given that the average monthly salary for entry-level positions is less than that! And, as much as I hate to say it, non-native English-speakers are frequently paid less than their native English-speaking counterparts. That said, the cost of living is reasonably low in China, so you should still be able to save some money, albeit not as much as you'd hoped.

To get an idea of figures, have a look at various job adverts, and use a site like Numbeo (https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/c ... ntry=China) to look at average monthly costs in various cities.

ok, as I see, just to take several extra tutoring lessons per week and that´s it! Hopefully. What about 1 lesson of tutoring? How much are they willing to pay for non-native teacher??

I'm afraid I don't know anything about private tutoring rates in China. You might be better off asking on the China board on Dave's ESL Café.

€2000 = ¥15,615. Forget the salaries of 40 – 50K Yuan which would allow that, they’re fantasies. I000 saved Euros a month? Possibly. BTW, teaching outside your place of work and it tends to be enforced in China, will probably get you deported and the PSB are quite strict on that.
