But he said some of those亚博在线手机龙凤1314 who replied appeared

?too eager to hire foreign teachers, and Baghdadi said he was even given “illegal advice” about getting a job.

亚博在线手机龙凤1314The regulation on foreign experts’ work permits states that overseas language teachers in China must obtain a work visa and be a native speaker with a bach

elor’s degree or higher, have at least two years of related teaching experience and no criminal record.

This means that Baghdadi, who is not a native English speaker and does not have sufficient亚博在线手机龙凤1314品茶微信

experience in teaching the language, may never have the chance to work in China as a teacher.

“But some agencies told me that they could help me apply for

亚博在线手机龙凤1314a Chinese business visa, and I could become a teacher in China, come what may,” he said.

Teaching English is a lucrative business in China, as the country’s opening-up to the

world means more people are looking to learn the “universal language”. For foreign亚博在线手机龙凤1314

ers, their nationality and even their skin tone can, at times, be their ticket to securing a teaching job.

According to a report last year from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, 300 million people i

亚博在线手机龙凤1314品茶微信n China were learning English. There were 50,000 English-language training institutions in the count

ry and the training market was worth as much as 500 billion yuan ($72 billion), the report said.

The high demand for English-language instruction had made finding a jo亚博在线手机龙凤1314品茶微信

b for most foreigners, particularly those who are white, little more than a formality.

According to a survey by Banyuetan, a Xinhua News Ag

ency magazine, in 2017, there were more than 400,000 foreign teacher

亚博在线手机龙凤1314品茶微信s working in the education sector in China, but only one-third of them were employed legally.

In recent years, the country has been rocked by a number of high-profile scandals resulting from a lack of vigilance i

n hiring foreign teachers. In some cases, people with questionable backgrounds have landed jobs.

Chinese firms ideal partners on Belt and Road Initiative

Firms from China and the UK are ideal partners in many countries along t

he Belt and Road Initiative, a China-Britain Business Council official said in Beijing.

“The UK has taken a very positive view on seizing these opportunit

astructure companies,” said Jeff Astle, managing director of China operations at the council.

British expertise in areas of financial services, banking, legal services, consulting services around engineering pro
