Beijing is the famous capital city of China and a giant cultural, economical, and political hub in Asia. The Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and many other historical sites are all within close reach, and it is a great place to enjoy modern city life and a vibrant night-scene.


Meet an ESL Teacher Living in Beijing


Meet Alex, an ESL Teacher from South Africa who has been living in Beijing, China for more than a year. She loves teaching in Beijing not only because of how active the city is and how surprisingly low the living costs are, but also because of her students.


“The best part of my day is definitely how loving and friendly the kids are,” Alex says. “These kids love you and they think that there is nothing better than their teacher who speaks English!”


Check out the video below to see what a day in Alex’s life is like: from going to work, teaching classes, enjoying a night out with friends, and other daily activities in China, you can get a closer look at what an ESL teacher’s life in Beijing is like!
