Dongguan is just a stone’s throw from the three largest cities in the South of China; Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

With a cost of living that is much less than its neighbours, teachers can expect to live comfortably and save a considerable amount each month while dipping into the social life at these nearby larger cities. Dongguan is a centre of commerce and business with a population of around 8 million so you will experience a large, established expat network with people coming from all over the world representing a multitude of business sectors. There are many green areas spread throughout the city and locals here are friendly and welcoming. Several of our partner schools are well established here and our teachers report positive feedback on their overall experience on a regular basis.
