I want to have a job teaching English to Chinese
December 18, 2016 11:49pm CST
A chinese PM and ask if I want to teach English. I want to have some extra income so I say yes. My problem is I don't do a lot of video calls. I'm so nervous to talk to him in video chat and I cannot understand what he is saying. So he did not accept me as a teacher. Has anyone here been hired by this Chinese man? He says he will pay US dollars through paypal and he will pay around $4 per hour. I have no experience teaching English to Asians. I think it will be hard.

@JudyEv Yeah that's true. Chinese thought Filipinos are fluent in speaking they don't know we are struggling also with conversational English. I'm just good in writing and can comprehend English because it's 2nd most common language here in my country.

English is an important foreign language in China. All children must learn it and therefore the teachers who can teach English are always welcome. And of course the native speakers will be much more popular. It doesn't matter that you don't speak Chinese at all. Since they are the people who learn English. They need to practise it more. At first your English must be good without accent and qualified so that you will be hired. Now there are more online websites to teach children English. You can try to search it via the net.

@youless Most Filipinos can understand English but it should be slow not too fast speaking but most of us don't speak fluently. Few also are good writers in English. Even if it is a major subject in school people here still struggles with their English. We joke around it's "nosebleed" when someone speak English a lot.
