Join SDE & Explore China

begin your adventure

Currently, more than 100,000 ESL (English as a Second Language) teachers are needed across China. Due to the HUGE market demand, the country is in desperate need of thousands of college graduates from English speaking countries. With just a passport and a bachelor’s degree, you have the opportunity to experience a completely new culture, vacation for months out of the year, and get paid well to do it. No previous teaching or Chinese experience is required.

Founded 20 years ago, SDE Seadragon Education is sponsored by the Chinese government to find, train, hire, and support world travelers looking to teach English abroad. We directly employ hundreds of teachers each year in cities across China to teach in public schools, kindergartens, and training centers while engaging socially with our amazing community of educators from all over the world. Visa sponsorship, flight reimbursement, professional development, housing assistance, and cultural immersion courses are just a few of the benefits working for SDE brings to the table.
