3-Month Cultural Exchange & English Home Tutoring in China
Written by: Shay Ames
Last Updated: July 19, 2021
Are you between school as a student? A teacher? Do you have a three-month window of opportunity to teach abroad & experience the international adventure of a lifetime?
International TEFL Academy is proud to offer our students & alumni a unique opportunity to teach English in Beijing or Shanghai, China while living with a local family for three months! This unique 3-month contract program exclusively available to ITA students & graduates provides a fantastic short-term teaching opportunity in one of the most historic nations on earth.
During your stay, you will be able to:
- Take weekly Chinese cultural classes covering such diverse facets of Chinese life as the art of Tai Chi, the precision of Chinese paper cutting, calligraphy, how to cook famous dumplings and much more.
- You can also take weekly Mandarin language classes & participate in educational field trips to locations like the Great Wall and Forbidden City. This experience is packed with free extras and you’ll feel great for helping your young learners build on their English language skills, while you soak in local culture during your stay.
You can do all of this as a summer abroad experience or any time of year. Don’t miss out on teaching abroad because you don’t have 6 to 12 months, or a lifetime, to spend overseas.
What's Covered Through the Exchange Program?
The teaching is paid and the experience is free. Your room and board is covered by your Chinese host family. The roundtrip airfare is free, along with your travel and medical insurance coverage. The language and cultural classes, along with your field trips are, you guessed it, all covered!
These positions are in and around Beijing, China. You will work 30 hours per week. This is focused on the demand Chinese families have for English language education.

What's the catch?
Living and teaching in China with your TEFL Certification is going to be an amazing experience. China is the biggest market in the world for teaching English as a language. These positions are being filled all year around. If you have 6 or 12+ months to teach there, you can find even greater benefits through our employer contacts. That said, if you have just three months, you won’t find another option with such great perks. We require a fully refundable deposit of $325 for your roundtrip airfare, reimbursed to you upon completion of your three months.
Bonus if you have a BA/BS degree:
If you have a BA/BS degree and participate in this amazing program for 6 months, your ITA TEFL course tuition will be reimbursed upon your completion. No big deal!
