French is an increasingly popular language in China, and we work with primary schools, middle schools and high schools in various Chinese cities that are looking for French teachers. We have a number of vacancies in Shenzhen, a city that beautifully balances megacity status (with 283 skyscrapers) and nature, with several different landscapes all within reach in the same city. We regularly get requests from schools in other cities as well, so you have options to choose from.

The Program

If there’s one thing for sure, it’s that you should never have to pay to work. And with us you won’t have to; but, to be able to offer the support, guidance, training, and resources we’re known for, we require all participants to pay a program service fee.


Program Fee

The fee for the program is £200 and includes hands -on support, training and help obtaining a work visa.


The program fee includes support from the moment you apply to the end of your placement in getting a visa, finding a job, and settling in.
