Subject: Teach English in China/Taiwan

I'm currently directing a Teach-in-China Program to assist those
interested in teaching English in China and Taiwan locate positions
there. If you would like to experience Chinese culture and teach
English at a college/university in China and Taiwan, please contact me
at email:, cc: or tel/fax:
201-432-6861. Applications for the next school year are being
accepted. Positions for regular appoinments and summer programs are
available. If you have a bachelor's degree, good references and are
committed to teaching, we guarantee placement. If you would like to
talk to people that we have helped place in China, which I urge you
to, I would be happy to provide you with a list.

I'll be leading a tour group to visit China this July, as I do every
year, and we'll be visiting five major Chinese cities: Hong Kong,
Hangzhou, Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing. You are welcome to join
us. Contact me for details.
