Anything Else?
I spoke to as many foreign teachers as possible during my time in China. Whether they were at a training center, public school, business school, university or private school, my salary was (by far) higher than anyone I met. I also never heard of anyone having as many vacation days as I did. I think it was because of my years of experience and the fact that I was an ESOL professor in American for 11 years. My situation did not seem to be typical, but it does show that many things about the contract can be negotiated. I wish I would have known that salary was negotiable. My first year I was told that they couldn’t go any higher. But, in order to bring me back the next year, they were willing to give me a raise.
