I finished my degree last year and thought I need adventure, I need more life experience before I settle down in my career. Being only 22 I knew I had a long time to fulfil my potential as an engineer I was always fond of chinese culture and wanted to experience it first hand. If you want to know more about this amazing experience then ask me any questions...

P.s Out to anyone who is struggling after uni to find work and wants to get away from the pressure of life in general.

Sounds like a great adventure overall! You'll get life experience, discover a new country, earn money... Just a quick question, do you have any language teaching certificates?

Yes, the language barrier and food takes a bit getting used to but overall it's improve my standard of living. No more rent, no more unaffordable bills, the advantages are endless. My agency did everything for me and I completed a Tesol certificate whilst out here. All I needed was a Bachelors degree and two years teaching related experience. I think they have cracked down on that now though. I think you would need to get a certificate and then come to teach. Tesol takes a month to complete, its about $200
