    30 classes per week. Is that normal?

    I've just started to work for a school that requires 30 classes per week. I've been a teacher before, but I've never worked at or been told to work so many classes per week. Monday and Friday are especially grueling days. The school hasn't finished transferring my working visa and I am having doubts about staying.

     I was told when I signed a contract that the school already had one foreign teacher and would hire two additional teachers (including me) to share 60 classes per week. Since I signed my contract the school afterwards decided no additional teacher is necessary (so two teachers to share 60 classes).

     

    The salary is 5000 basic salary + 60rmb per class. Teach Grade 7, 8, 10, 11, and International students. Need to weekly design and submit own lesson plans for each grade level.

    I think it depends on the salary and students age.

    I think it depends on the salary and students age.

    If you are in a kindergarten, you have to be with the kids all the time

    If you are teaching in an college, that will be much different as adults are easy to

    manage and you dont have to inspect them all the time but the salary is also low .

    You have to aware of this, everything is relative with your salary!
