"oh Vikki you are very smart"   Details
Author: Vikki Roylance <Viktorja_roylance(at)hotmail.com>
Yes yes that is the phrase that sums up my dealings with contracts in a chinese school. When I fist came to China I was na?ve and soft, not imagining that they would try to trick me. I mean they kept saying we were friends, they wouldn¡¯t trick me¡­right? WRONG. I hate to sound negative because China is a big sprawling beauty of a country. BUT I want the newbies out there to watch out.

Job Search Advice   Details
Author: Kate <katepult(at)hotmail.com>
Ask: Do you work for the school or are you with a recruitment agency?
Say you will not come if you do not talk to a teacher from the school. We tried to contact a teacher, but he never replied.
If you sign a contract, make sure it has an official red stamp.
Do not go over on the wrong visa and expect the school to change it. Get the official invitation and do it yourself. My visa continues to be a pain in my ass.

Tips of Surviving In China   Details
Author: Jae Yang
1. There are some decent recruiters, but many of them are not!!!!
2. You will often have to sign 2 contracts. 1 is govt related the other is normally the in house contract the school will have you sign. Beware of them changing contracts on you at the last minute. If you are in the states have them sign terms with you B4 you go!!!!!
3. The govt schools pay less but normally you have to deal with less BS.
4. If you are serious about teaching in China, be prepared to do 2 years.
5. Have some basic people skills.

My Advice on Contracts   Details
Author: Lisa Stanley <lisastanley72(at)yahoo.com>
There are two particular clauses that prospective teachers need to be very careful about.
Firstly, I recommend avoiding schools which offer a base salary plus an hourly rate per teaching hour.
Secondly, be very wary of contracts that allow the contracting school to send you off to different schools in the area.

My Experience
You are welcome to describe your experience in China, and share your thoughts and feelings on our website.
We always say, if something good happens you will tell one person; something bad happens you will tell ten people. Generally, people remember the negative things more than the positive things. We do not have responsibility to verify every detail. Actually, a good description does not mean that is really perfect; and a bad personal feeling does not mean every thing is horrible.
All articles are personal experience and viewpoint. People use different eyes to look at a thing so result will be difference. The important thing is we have different culture background. China is a beautiful country, and she also is a developing country. Compare to some developed countries we still have some problems especially in some small towns and countryside. But China still has more sparking.
