Reasons Why Teaching In China Is Risk These Days…


For a long time, many foreigners in China have chosen to work as teachers. But in the recent days, being a foreign teacher in China is not as easy as it used to be, especially for those teaching here without legal visa or education certificates.

Since the beginning of July, we have noticed that detention of foreign teachers seems to have risen.

On the morning of July 10, the Jiangsu authorities announced that they had detained 19 people after the drug test failed.

Among them, 16 were foreigners – seven teachers and nine students – one of whom was detained by the police under criminal law (not a simple administrative detention). According to reports, all the arrested teachers work in EF Education, a well-known English training center company in China.

Less than a month later, five foreign teachers who worked illegally at an English training center in a shopping mall in Nanhai District, Foshan City, Guangdong Province, were checked. 

Teachers from Africa and Europe were fined 5,000RMB and their visas were cancelled. As for the training center itself, it was fined up to RMB 50,000 and the boss was legally responsible for the whole episode by the Nanhai police sub-bureau.
There are other similar cases as above. In view of this, the government has also introduced a series of more stringent policies to deal with illegal foreign teachers’ issues and to mange the number of foreign teachers.
