    "Chinese" is not a language, sir.

    Chinese is a language, albeit a written one. The writing system is universal across China. Mandarin and Cantonese are dialects.

    I don't know if you would expect the same as a student but I hear there are several of those english teaching job placement agencies that are scams. So be careful of the school or agency that you go through.

    Yes, I knew someone who moved to Hong Kong to teach English near there. Type in TEFL into a search engine (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)- that's a good place to start, because I think you have to meet certain standards to be listed there.

    Make your destination to Kunming, a nice place in China having comfortable weather around the year. My friends brother also stays over there and studying at Minds Abroad.
