Are you a couple who are thinking about coming over to China? Do you want to know how will be for the both of you working at EF? In this podcast we invite Grace, Daniel, Bryce and Megan on to talk about life in China as couples.

 

We explore the advantages and disadvantages of what everyday is like for them as Dave and Jimmy ask how they balance spending time with each other and handling their teaching schedule. We also ask about their future and how they feel they are developing individually and as a couple. This cast is aimed at anyone who is currently in a relationship in China or thinking about joining an ESL company with their partner.
