Spend Your Gap-Year Teaching English in Shanghai!

TEFL jobs in Shanghai! Spend your gap-year teaching English in Shanghai with OnTESOL and EF English First

In the struggle for reaching the top, home-grown tycoons built soaring monuments overnight.  Historically, Shanghai has been the juncture of China with the West and is now a driver for the latest trends in China. Amongst the modernized alleys of Shanghai lies a shabby pathway to the old temples nestling down the alleys with lined street markets and classical Chinese gardens. A city of astonishing urban diversity! You can go from a dumpling at a street stall to a cocktail in a designer bar or overlook the 10th century Buddhist monastery in a matter of few milliseconds. Summers might be hot and humid and winters cold but Shanghai never sleeps.

“I am a total foodie and Shanghai is a gastro playground for me.” –Keith Downing is teaching English online from the EF Shanghai office.
