Well, there are universities in Guiyang, maybe some students would like to study the French language.

Here is some info (in Chinese) for Chinese students who wish to study in France.

Maybe go to the office and look for a bulletin board where you can add your information.

Or try to make a phone call to the teacher that heads the exchange program and who might speak French (陈老师, phone number on the webpage above)

 

By the way, does your visa allow you to work?

Wouldn't you need a specific job before you get a visa? So I assume not.

Maybe the OP is on a student visa for an English-taught program, and allowed to work X hours per week as long as the uni okays it.

Maybe the OP is on some kind of visa for "foreign born Chinese" and I have no idea what these allow or not regarding work.

Or maybe the OP has obtained the Chinese nationality somehow...

It's the government that grant working visas, not the university's.

Well given he said he was French native

and doesn't speak Chinese the odds are he is not.

Then you wouldn't need a visa. 

 

End of the day if he is just doing part time teaching the reality is can teach and just turn a blind eye to the visa issue. It's China.

I was referring to being legally allowed to work a few hours per week while on a long term student visa/student residence permit, after getting approval from the university. Or has this been repelled already?

Until there's a crackdown and he gets fined and/or deported (happened a few years ago).

Excellent. Then you can just follow the normal procedure for people on a normal visa wanting to get employed in China.

Hi edelwise, 

I was told by my company (state owned) that x1 and x2 visa can't work even part time. The language school I was in lat year also said the same. So I'm just going by that. Maybe it has changed

 

As for my comment about working on a student visa, well we can only point out the reality of what happens to aid posters here. They can make their own mind up but information from people living here is always beneficial. I don't want to encourage anyone either way, but reality is many many students do work doing private lessons and chances of getting caught is highly unlikely. Done working full time 10 years and more on a spouse  visa etc. However working for a school there is a chance the police will turn up one day and ask for everyone's workers permit. This did indeed happen to several schools in the Beijing District a few years ago.
