I am going to be putting together a series of videos about the entire process of how to come to China to teach English. I will show how to find a job, how to do the interview, how to do a teaching demo on skype, how to negotiate your contract to get the best deal for yourself, visas pros and cons of each different visa, arriving in China, finding an apartment, getting paid, food options, and of course, I will show what an actual classroom and lesson looks like.

Now yes I have said in the past that Best Learning was a horrible school for myself. I have been told that they have replaced the problem and that their pay schedule is much better now. Best Learning is still a great teaching environment especially for those with no degree and no experience who have just arrived in China. Once you get your feet wet, you can move to a kindergarten or other school. Here is a great link for all things teaching in China.
They also host a pretty decent TEFL Blacklist.
I don't have a lot of experience with this topic, but I do work with 3 non-native English teachers. I get asked at least 4-5 times a day about racism and non-native English speaking jobs in China. Race is such a sensitive topic anyway and when you add the issue of people being denied jobs because of it, then it becomes even more of a problem. I do not want to promote anything of the sort. This video is just my experience with the issue and things I have talked with a few other teachers about.
One of the first things you do while looking for a job teaching English in China is have a Skype demo and interview. I'm going to show you step by step how to make them both successful. Pick out a song, I used head, shoulders, knees, and toes. Then pick target language or vocabulary to teach from the song. Make flashcards. Sing. SHOW THAT YOU ARE ENTHUSIASTIC AND HAPPY! In the first interview avoid talking about money. Ask questions about the school and the visa. In the second interview ask about money.

Some major changes to the laws for expats regarding native English speakers with fake degrees and non-native English speakers. The Chinese government has passed new laws stating that all degrees must be verified by your embassy and must be notarized. Non-native English speakers must now have degrees from native English speaking countries to receive work visa's for teaching. This isn't to say that people won't just continue teaching on tourist visas and business visas, from what I am seeing, this is just going to cause more people to work illegally.

Now you know!
I have been in China for almost 3 years now. I have loved living here so much but I am not sure whether to renew my contract or to just pursue other endeavors that I am currently working on. Teaching jobs in China can be very rewarding and offer a high enough salary to live a comfortable life.
I enjoy teaching but I am not passionate about it. It has a high salary, low hours and I have lots of free time to do what I want. I just don't know if it will get in the way in the future or if I should just find an alternative.
