Do you want to teach and travel overseas? What about China? Do you want to teach and travel in China? What would you teach? ESL or English as a Second Language as it is called or something else. Would you like to teach and travel overseas? Well now you can. The world is your oyster. Why not start your teach and travel adventure in China, where they are screaming out for ESL teachers. If you are thinking of teaching overseas then China should be on your radar. The market for English as a Second Language teachers is huge. To get ahead in China, you need to speak English and a large number of people over there want to learn English. So you will be in demand. In this book you will find the experience of a lifetime. And also the warnings about silly little things that could happen. China is a country of contrasts where you could be plowing along at around 350kms/hour on a brand new high speed train. And get picked up at the train station on the back of a 125 cc motorbike. You could be teaching in a fully air-conditioned state of the art classroom with all the latest mod cons and tech, or under a tree in the village square with the whole village watching you. All I can say is 'be amazed' because you will be. You will either love your overseas experience or hate it. But you have to go and travel and teach in China to find out. Teaching ESL or English as a Second Language is not overly difficult but you have to learn the trade. And in the book you will be given resources you can follow up to perfect your craft. There are links to job sites and what to put in you CV. Teach and travel in China could be the highlight of your overseas experience. But you have to go to China to experience teaching ESL and living in China. Now to teach and travel in China is very easy. Usually when you get a job the school will supply accommodation. That could mean, living in a dorm room at a boarding school, with meals supplied in the dining room. Or a fully furnished flat where you cook your own meals. Either way is good.

About Peter Legrove
Asia was now firmly planted in my blood and the Middle Kingdom was calling, so it was an easy hop to Hong Kong. Hong Kong was screaming out for teachers, anyone would do. Here I was stuck in a big modern city, but I paid the price in stress and crowded living. I loved it all the same, and to get away from the crowds and the pressure all it took was a jump across the border. This was China before it went economically mad and they were screaming out for teachers. So it was back to a developing country but this country was developing into an economical powerhouse that would influence the world for years to come. Anyway to tackle the adult students -who were all learning English so they could immigrate to a better life, only to realize if they had stayed in China they would be in the top of their fields -- we were teaching everything from beginner to advanced and everything in between. They were the good old days and at that time it was all adult students. We were surrounded by friends who would always help you when you needed it. Then the adult teaching market collapsed and was being replaced by kindergarten and primary school. So it was onto teaching kids and this wasn't so bad. To help the kids I had to learn new things and this is where I was first introduced to the "Montessori Method of Teaching." I tried it out and it was so successful I never looked back. Now all I teach is kindergarten and primary school, the adult market has collapsed. With the Middle Kingdom heading for superpower status it is now fast churning out traffic-jammed mega-cities, clouded in pollution. It is getting too difficult to get to the schools. I spend most of my life in traffic jams and endless queues at the supermarket and every morning I wait for the pollution cloud to lift. So it was time to find something else to bring in the daily bread. Now I'm back in New Zealand teaching Chinese kids online. Best of both worlds - living out of the pollution zone and still teaching kids.
