    ESL teachers, would you want to teach abroad and what do you think are the best places to teach?

    China is caling for ESL teachers. They pay very good and treat their students very well. Although this is true, China is a communist country. Therefore, there is the factor of having less freedom in what you teach.

      I have thought of going there for the experience, and I have interests in learning about the culture.

      Mainland China is a communist country only in name.  Mainland China has millionaires (over 391,000) and billionaires (over 40) according to Forbes http://factsanddetails.com/china.php?it … bcatid=70. It doesn't treat its stud
