Step 1: TESOL
Obtain a TESOL certificate
A TESOL or teaching certificate is required by most online ESL companies. This one costs only $19 and will provide the 120 Hour requirement (PS: it doesn’t take that long!).
Obtain a TEFL certificate
A reputable TEFL is worth the investment. A TEFL certificate will help you with in-person teaching, teaching overseas or teaching in smaller online English companies to help you stand out from the crowd.
Step 2: Apply
These Chinese companies are still hiring but the future is unknown as the how long they will be in operation.
