COVID-19 UPDATE 3 April 2020: We are still carrying on as normal, with no plans to delay or cancel any upcoming placements. We’d like to offer some reassurance to all new applications however: If for ANY corona-related reason you do not come to China on time as planned (EG: issues with airlines, visas, borders, delayed graduation, loss of UK job/money, or that you simply wish to defer for your own personal reasons), you can come to China any time in the following 12 months instead, without having to pay any further support fees. Check out some of our current applicant Instagram accounts below, to see what our current China applicants are up to. You can even drop them an instant message if you like. Each of the people listed here is currently out in China. It may be quite reassuring to speak with them: Danny Ryan Megan Bradley Cian Lisa Ali Jake Daniel Joanna

8 April Note re China 2020 applications: There is currently a group of about 40 signed up for China 2020, and they have already started the online TEFL training. They have also submitted their placement preferences and are currently awaiting placement allocation. They are in a group chat on WhatsApp. We are happy to take another few people, but new applicants should be ready to start the ball rolling very soon after submitting an application, so as not to fall behind the group.
