Even though you do not want take teaching as a life career, these skills will help to get your dream job in the future. Your teaching ESL experience in China will be the “highlight” in your resume.
Also, the teaching job will form a healthier character for you since you will be more confident and positive through teaching ESL to your Chinese students/
6. FIND YOUR LIFE CAREER
When first entered the ESL teaching industry, many people regarded being an ESL teacher as a temporary or short-term job. But most teachers begin to find that they have completely fallen in love with teaching as time goes by.
Of course, teaching ESL in China is not your only choice. You can take advantage of the teaching experience and skills gained in China to get an ESL job in your dream countries (if China is not that one). What a wonderful thing!
