Let’s Share the Good News
We are pleased and honored to announce that our first eBook titled Work, Live and Travel in China, written together with an amazing travel blogger Sarah Bennett of The Further Adventures of Bennett, is now available in the Kindle Store.
This eBook sums up our two-year experience of teaching, living and traveling in, of the most magnificent and challenging countries – China.
We started working on the eBook over a year ago and, although it took us some time to finally finish it off, we must admit it has been an amazing journey for all of us. We would like to say thank you to Sarah for being such a great support to us and we hope it is not going to be the last piece of work we will write!
About the eBook
Do you like traveling? Have you ever thought about what your life would be like if you were traveling and working in a foreign country? Deciding to work abroad can be a bit daunting, but really once you break it down it is just like applying for any other job, except thousands of miles away! There is nothing better and more exciting than breaking out of your comfort zone and starting to explore the world out there – just like we did. We are Agness, Sarah and Cez – 3 friends with a passion for travel, who found teaching in China as a way to broaden horizons without compromising on quality of living or career progression. Work, Live and Travel in China is a selection of helpful tips and in-depth information on working as a teacher, life and travel in the land of dragons and emperors – China.
This book has been written from the perspective and hindsight of individual experiences, illustrated with specific examples to guide you through all aspects of living, teaching and traveling in China. First-hand and recent experiences and tips will equip you with knowledge needed for a safe and enjoyable time during your stay in China.
It gives you advice on:
- Why you might want to teach in China.
- What you need to know before you leave your home country.
- What the main benefits of living and working in China are.
- How to get ready for your first teaching and travel China experience.
- What to expect after arrival and throughout your stay.
Since the Chinese economy has strengthened greatly and is advancing at breath-taking speed, there is still a very high demand for English teachers. Take this available opportunity and embark on the adventure of your lifetime!
Why We Wrote the eBook
The main purpose of writing this handbook is a desire to help people like you, open-minded and far-reaching world travelers and adventure hunters, to work as teachers, live like locals and travel like nomads across one of the most beautiful and ancient countries in the world. Based on our experiences living in China, we want to help you enjoy your time and get the most out of your stay. With our combined experience of working in both public schools and private English training centers, we realised that there are many people who want to work abroad and might like to read first-hand advice from people who have done it before. Of course we have made some mistakes along the way, so we feel obliged to prepare you for what awaits you and make sure you are best equipped for life out here. We want you to have the best gap year, sabbatical or maybe even a career in China.
Who It Is For
Work, Live and Travel in China has been written for anyone who is willing to discover Chinese culture, cuisine and traditions in a different way: not as a regular tourist, but as an expat. Nowadays, working and teaching in China is available to anyone with a good grasp of English: whether you are a native speaker or a near-native speaker. Foreign teachers are always in demand and more often than not, as long as you are foreigner you can get a job.
The main groups of people employed as English teachers in China are:
- Recent graduates of any discipline who are looking to broaden their horizons, get teaching experience and /or escape the depressing news of graduate unemployment at home.
- People in need of change in their lives, whether in regards to location or career in the long or short term.
- Chinese culture enthusiasts, including those who want to learn the language.
- Long-term or gap-year travelers looking to refill their wallets for further adventures.
Realistically however, it doesn’t matter what stage you are at in your life; as long as you are in good health and think you can physically and mentally meet the demands of working in a foreign country then teaching in China could be for you.
