Discovering the Far East

In today’s increasingly globalized world, the demand for the English language is seemingly endless. For the adventurous, teaching English in China has become the best way to earn a living and explore this exciting country. But this isn’t new. For generations restless and intrepid souls from the West have been fascinated by the prospect of travelling through the vast mountain ranges, trellised rice paddies, and—more recently—sprawling neon-lit cityscapes of China. The nation is home to one of the oldest continuous civilizations on the planet (with more than 4,000 years of documented history) and a host of natural and man-made wonders, from the plumes of water cascading down the Huangguoshu Falls and the mist-shrouded peaks of Mt. Wuyi, to the modern skylines and bustling streets of Beijing and Shanghai, not to mention the striking Great Wall. China has always called out to those who have the traveller’s thirst for the new and unfamiliar, the blending of the ancient and the modern, whether as an explorer or as an entrepreneur. The question then becomes how to get your foot in the door and how to make a living once you get there.

Of course, you have to deal with expensive roaming charges, unlocking your phone to make it compatible with other networks, having to buy a new SIM Card and purchase prepaid credits are just some of the many problems we may face just to be able to connect to the internet when abroad.
