I know a fair good number of people who came to China through an agency. It can be a "reliable way" but it depends how reliable the agency is.

I think it can make a difference if it's a western based agency (a teach abroad type of deal) or a Chinese one. Which is yours?

Also, what are your impressions of who you deal with? Do they give you any reason to doubt them? Do things seem too good or do they gloss over your questions?

You should ask to contact a teacher currently working at the school and, ideally, one that has just left. If any school or recruiter has a problem with this then it should make you think twice about working there. That way, you can confirm what the recruiter has told you by asking that teacher.

I would also recommend getting the exact location of the school and the apartment. If not the address, then the district. That way, you can see exactly where you would be living. Is it a convenient location? Is it in the centre of the city or actually 2 hours by bus outside of the city? Etc etc

How do they measure your performance? I'm just curious on that one...
