Forums > Living in Kunming > The importance of TEFL

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to pick your brains. I have been teaching abroad now for 9 years and have experience in various institutions ranging from kindergarten up to high school with a few years teaching adults as well.

My question is, how important do you believe it is to have a TEFL certificate to work at higher education institutions in China? I do currently work and live in Kunming but I wonder if in the adsence of having a TEFL certificate, can teaching experience carry you through? I have a degree but it is not in a "related" field (education for example).

Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. I have an interview for a position next week and wonder if the topic of having a TEFL certificate will come up.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Forums > Study > Japanese in Kunming

Hey guys,

An unusual question perhaps but does anyone know of a Japanese association or a place where one can get Japanese lessons here?

Lived in Japan for a number of years and fear my Japanese is getting rusty. Of course there are many online options but if anyone knows of anything going on here in the city, let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Where to buy a coffee machine

Hey guys,

Went into Walmart the other day and was surprised not to find any coffee makers/ machines. Any ideas where I can track one down in town? Of course there is always taobao but if anyone knows of a place in town, let me know.


Forums > Living in Kunming > Cleaning service - Recommendations?

Hi everyone,

I know it has been posted before but it has been a few years so I thought I would reach out.

Does anyone have any good recommendations for a cleaner/ cleaning service? I am moving apartments and would like the new one to get a good clean before I move in.

Thanks in advance for the advice.
