Here is how much South Africans can earn by teaching English in China

China

South Africans who have completed a TEFL course (Teach English as a Foreign Language), can make serious money teaching in China.

According to data provided to BusinessTech by Global Teacher Recruitment, TEFL teachers can earn anywhere between R30,000 – R45,000 a month depending on where they work and who they teach.

Notably, the data shows that expats often earn higher salaries in smaller and lesser-known cities (Tier 3) in China, compared to more popular Tier 1 cities such as Shenzhen or Guangzhou.

You can find a breakdown of the different courses across multiple Chinese cities below.
