I highly recommend anyone looking for an opportunity to go abroad, teach, and explore to consider Shanghai as a destination. I’ll leave bullet-points below covering the pros and cons of life in Shanghai as a fresh-off-the-boat/plane English teacher.
It is the city that combines the traditional local Chinese culture with modern styles. I’ve lived here since the year of 2015. Every year I notice how this city grows fast and it surprises me every time.
You may have studied abroad yourself, heard stories from others who have taught overseas, or just fancy doing something different for a while. So, why should you consider teaching abroad and being one of the thousands who take the chance every year?
