SOCIETY, JOB, SALARY IN CHINA

Congratulations, you have embarked on your adventure. You were greeted by a representative at the airport who carries a board with your name on it, it’s time to get acquainted with the country in which you will live and work for at least the next year. The first thing you will go through is to get acquainted with everyday life, which are the most important sights of the city where you stay and work, shops, shopping malls, a hotel where you will stay for a few days. You have 7 days to rest from the trip, get acquainted with your future everyday life, as well as with your workplace. Our goal is to make your adaptation to the new environment as pleasant as possible. Your working hours will mostly depend on your employer, and you will definitely agree on everything with them. In general, the number of working hours is similar in all countries, that is up to 40 hours per week. English language teachers usually work from 20-30 hours a week. The employer will be the one to pay for your accommodation so you don‚Äôt have to worry about that.

DIFFERENT CULTURE

During your stay in China, you will live in a culture that is very different from the local one. You will certainly go through a period of adjustment but there are big differences in attitudes, standards, expectations and reactions in terms of accommodation, food, leisure, language and more. Remember that you chose to work abroad to get to know and understand a different culture, to improve, to make money. Otherwise, you would decide to stay at home and get a job in one of the parent companies. It will be a period that will remain deeply etched in your memory. Remember, you are responsible for adapting to the new culture of the host country because it will not change because of you.

CULTURE SHOCK

In the beginning, you will meet a nation that is very different from you, primarily physically. The positive thing is that people in China really value the appearance of every European, so don’t be surprised if a complete stranger stops you on the street just to take a picture with you. Before embarking on your adventure, read, take a look, absorb all the information about the country you are going to, about their habits, customs, way of life, because it is definitely waiting for you. You are too ambitious if you think the new environment will not shock you. It is up to you how quickly you will get used to real Chinese restaurants, to “small” cities of 5 million inhabitants, to a different religion, way of thinking and so on. Be above your expectations, and accept everything you learn as an extremely important lesson in life.

BE:

  • adjustable
  • affordable
  • open to new knowledge and experiences
  • professional
  • confident in what you are doing
  • honest in their opinions
  • patient with their surroundings
  • cooperative at work
  • curious
  • self-critical and accept criticism as advice

5 MOST IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT WORKING IN CHINA

  1. TESOL COURSE

is here to provide you with training in the field of English language teaching. Through a series of classes, TESOL experts are there to enable you to improve your English, to become lecturers, to adapt to cultural differences. It is up to you to renew your knowledge of English, try to communicate in it as much as possible, practice your accent and your written language. Every second you dedicate to it will be precious to you.

  1. WORK ABROAD

You are going to work in a foreign country where you do not know the psychology and way of working of the employer. Make sure you inquire as much as possible and ask the future employer the questions that interest you the most. This is not just a cultural exchange, you are going to develop a completely different way of life, and to adapt to a different environment.

  1. EVERYDAY LIFE

You are the one who will organize your free time. Keep in mind that you probably won’t be able to do the usual things you did at home, such as browsing Facebook (hopefully you know that most social networks in China are banned from use). Your favorite series on a well-known channel will probably not be available to you, and maybe your favorite drink will not be on the shelf in the store. This is by no means a reason not to try another Chinese specialty, drink one of the many teas for which they are famous, or maybe instead of a comfortable armchair and TV, walk through numerous Chinese promenades and see numerous temples.

  1. EARNINGS AND COSTS OF LIVING

Of course you go to China to earn, of course you will be paid for your work, but do not expect to be paid immediately like the average Chinese. Also, don’t be surprised if your salary increases quickly, they know how to appreciate capable and hard-working people. Also, don’t be surprised when you see that a lot of groceries and things are far cheaper than with us, also, sometimes it will be hard for you to believe that some groceries are far more expensive. As in any country, the prices of the consumer basket vary from the stocks that the state has at its disposal and which it must import.¬†

  1. CHINESE AND ENGLISH

Unlike English, which is quite defined, elaborate and easy to understand, Chinese consists of characters that combine and intone differently. Even today, it is not known how many characters the Chinese language actually has. Once upon a time there were over 45,000 characters, today 36,000 characters are actively used. For normal communication and reading the newspaper, it is enough to know 3000 characters. People in China know an average of about 9,000 characters. Good luck if you decide to learn Chinese, which we definitely advise. Don’t be surprised, the Chinese population attaches a lot of importance to the English language, so that children have a basic knowledge of the same at the earliest age.
