I've been reading lots of reviews people have written about teaching in different educational establishments, and in different areas of China. Some awful, and some great experiences. I'm doing my due diligence and researching all I can about the country and asking people who have been there their thoughts. However, I'm still wanting as much input from people as possible, and I hope you can help with 1 or more of my following questions:
*Where in China is now meant to be THE place to teach? And is it due to living conditions, conditions of school, salary, etc.?
* Are the 2 safest bets Beijing or Shanghai, or are there other cosmopolitan places that offer good teaching jobs AND a good lifestyle? i.e. night life, standards of schools, living conditions.
* Has anyone had a particularly good or bad experience with a particular establishment in a particular Province/ town that they could share? Would be most welcomed
* Where have you taught in China and how was it?
* Are there any particularly handy sights that will offer me a real insight into China?
Obviously I'm looking for a lot here, and by no means expect all my questions to be answered, but I would genuinely appreciate any replies.
Thanks, taking my Trinity TESOL course next month - very scary as I realise how intense the courses are!!
