YOU GOT A QUESTION?
WE HAVE AN ANSWER!
EdulinxUSA has got your back covered, so you can feel confident and secure in your decision to apply
Can I apply if I have no teaching experience?
Yes. Candidates with less than 2 years of teaching experience will be required to complete the TEFL/TESOL training course and obtain the TEFL/TESOL certificate. The TEFL training includes a 120-hour online course, and a 40-hour training camp with teaching practice. Upon completion of the training, the candidate will be awarded the TEFL certificate.
Do I need to pay for the TEFL certificate?
The cost expense of the TEFL course will be covered by EdulinxUSA if you are successfully placed and attend the TEFL training course camp designated by EdulinxUSA in Beijing.
What if I already had a TEFL certificate?
Please note that NOT ALL TEFL certificates are acceptable. The recognition of the TEFL certificate you hold depends on the regulation of each provincial/municipal Foreign Expert Bureau in China. Please contact us to inquire about the acceptability of the TEFL certificate you have
Will I be accepted if I have a criminal record?
Unfortunately, foreigners with a criminal record are not permitted to work in China according to the regulation of the State Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs. They are not eligible to be granted a work permit.
Can I apply with my friend?
EdulinxUSA encourages you to apply with your friend. If feasible, EdulinxUSA will try to place you in the same city or school/institution. Please specify it in your application form.
Do I need to get travel insurance?
EdulinxUSA strongly recommends that all applicants purchase travel insurance in their home country for the duration of their stay in China. Although the host school in China will provide insurance coverage within the period of the contract, it is still advisable to have additional insurence coverage.
What kind of visa do I need to teach in China?
To teach in China, you will need to obtain a Z visa. The Z visa is a work visa specifically for foreign nationals who are going to China to work. It is issued by the Chinese embassy or consulate in your home country and allows you to enter China for the purpose of taking up employment.
Can I ask EdulinxUSA for help while I am in China?
EdulinxUSA and your host school will support and assistance with your living and teaching needs during your contract period in China.
What will my accommodation be like?
Your accommodation will be either on campus or near the school and will be furnished and equipped with necessary household appliances such as a TV, internet connection, shower, and washing machine. You may share the apartment with another teacher of the same gender from the program. Utilities will be covered, or you will be provided with an allowance.
