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.

Here's what happens to your bank account when you teach in China.
* Please Note: I no longer live in China and have since moved back to the United States. Although I'm delighted to have shared a lot of my Asian adventures, I understand you may have many other questions about how to live and work in China. As you might realize, I get a lot of e-mails with questions, and unfortunately I do not have the time to get back to every request. If you are in urgent need of support and would like to arrange time for a paid consultation where I will give you my best advice, please message me. All the best to your adventures abroad!
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.

Teaching English in China is a huge culture shock on many levels. At the same time it forces you to open your eyes and mind to experience the world on a completely different level. You can travel, make money, save money, see things you never thought you could see in your wildest dreams. Best of all you can see how people live outside of your bubble, because no matter where you live, you are definitely living in your own bubble. Living and teaching in a completely different environment forces you to enjoy life more.

I have observed a phenomenon among English teachers in China: after obtaining a teaching job at an English school in China (regardless of whether it is in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, or Guangzhou etc.) they get in some conflict or dispute within the first month or two of teaching and just leave. Sometimes they leave just that particular English school and look for another teaching job, and many times they even simply leave China altogether.
This video discusses this phenomenon.
