Learn Chinese in China



Recommended Posts


Can anyone offer any advice on what sort of job opportunities would be available for me in Beijing.

I guess the most obvious is teaching english, but I do not have a University degree so does that limit me in that respect ?

I do want to go and live.work in Bejing with my chinese wife however I really am at a loss as to what sort of work I would be able to get that pays well. What sort of "good" opportunites are there for mandarin speaking europeans ?

Any advice would be great.

My situation is:

native english speaker 32 years old.

LANGUAGE: Intermediate mandarin, good enough for basic communication in a workplace. Constantly improving

TRADE: printing industry prepress operatior - typesetting, design techinal operation etc.

Officially, not having a University degree does limit you - but in practice, it's certainly been done quite a lot. If the legalness worries you - look into private teaching. Try snooping around thatsbeijing.com
