COVID-19 Update

We’re currently unable to send teachers to China due to visa restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The next intake for teaching in China may be in 2022. However, you can still submit your application or ask us questions any time. We recommend you complete your TEFL course now so you’re ready when China reopens.
