    DAMN, I wonder what you've seen Captain because, I have seen otherwise from "qualified" Individuals. Still, there is less deversification in China.

    Yes I'm a nationalist!!!!.....No, I'm a realist. An education and at least some sort of high level proficiency may qualify for teaching 4+? I can teach English in China, but no. Not every American that teaches English in China has a degree in English.

    The university jobs do not pay well, but you only have to teach for about 12 hours a week, may well get accomodation, and often get three to four months holiday a year, on full pay. 

    Other than the obvious pay differential, I would say working for a university is a far better gig than working for Wall Street.

    Echinacities is not a bad website for China jobs and in the past I have had some success at just emailing universities directly, so would reccomend that.

    University jobs are more honorable. The pay maybe smaller compared to what is paid in some language schools but you’ll have your respect.

    If you don’t mess your self up with the little children (girls), you simply do your job and go; no body is using you for advertisement purposes. In the university, students are looking upon you but in the language school you’re a slave to students.

    Besides some of these so called language schools are falling gradually most of them has been sold out and the management changed.

    That offer is pretty bad, even for a university. 

    I'd recommend anesl.com. I realise a lot of people have bad things to say about them but they found me an awesome university job.  I'd also recommend not accepting anything less than 6,000rmb for 12 hours in Beijing + apartment. It's still pretty low, but not as obscenely low as 4k for 16 hours.

    (But because I can't be sure, yes, it's really low and a return air ticket + apartment is normal in these circumstances)

    You could and should be making twice that, plus airfare and rent.
