One of the primary concerns teachers have prior to making the decision to teach abroad is if their earnings will be sufficient to support a good quality standard of living, especially if traveling back home from time to time is involved.

Payments to teachers are usually paid on a monthly basis in local currency, Chinese RMB. Salaries can range from RMB 6,000 ($984) and RMB 15,000 ($2500) per month for teachers with less experience in smaller towns up to RMB8,000 ($1300) –RMB20,000 ($3000) for teachers with more experience in larger cities. The average salary of an experienced foreign teacher working 35-40 hours (including office hours) would be RMB14,000 ($2300) or more.

Teachers can also supplement their earnings with private teaching in which they can charge anywhere from RMB 150 ($25) to RMB 300 ($50). Working only five extra hours on the weekend would earn a teacher charging RMB 150/h, up to RMB 3,000 ($500) per month. Teachers also have the option to work during the summer and winter in summer and winter camps held in Chinese provinces.
