Language/Dialects

The official language in China is Mandarin. In Chinese, this is pronounced Putonghua (普通话). Teach english in china is a good experience


Although usually you are not required to speak Mandarin in the workplace, it is beneficial to speak such a widespread language in the workplace, restaurants, subways, to taxi drivers, etc.

The development of Han Chinese society has been characterized by varying degrees of differentiation and unification, resulting in the gradual emergence of a Chinese dialect. People speaking each dialect cannot speak to each other, so distant dialects remain, especially in Min areas.

The centralized Chinese government has worked hard to make sure the Mandarin dialect is spoken in schools, at official government locations, etc. However, almost everyone speaks a second or third dialect at home, etc. that may differ considerably from Putonghua. Many dialects in different parts of China are so different that one group of Chinese people cannot understand other Chinese speaking their respective mother tongues.

Traditionally, Chinese language uses symbols to represent meaning. Since 1949, the Chinese government has also developed alphabetic marking system named Pinyin to transcribe words by their pronunciations, and allows for more efficient typing on a computer screen.

Teaching english in China

China and other countries treat holidays very different from the West. Whether you are in a public school or a language training center, you can only take leave on legal holidays. Fortunately, there are plenty of public holidays when your students are out of school in China, and you have time for a long vacation.

In contrast to the United States, where ten days of paid holiday is the norm, many people working for public schools are surprised that China has up to six weeks of winter holidays and summers off. This disparity results in an extra four months of vacation, sometimes at full pay.
