We know that deciding to come and work in China is a big decision and you want to be sure that you’re making the right one. That’s why we created this page of New Life ESL reviews from teachers we’ve placed with our various partner schools throughout China. We are sending new teachers to China on a daily basis, so we’ll be be updating this section constantly with what our teachers have to say about us. In addition, we’re always more than happy to provide you with contact information of teachers we’ve placed so that you can talk to them directly and ask them about our service and how we helped them out with getting a great job in China.
New Life ESL Reviews:
I owe a lot to Derrick and the crew over at New Life ESL. I arrived in Beijing almost two weeks ago to great accommodations as well as everything lined up for me to work at a school. My experience has been absolutely amazing. Moving to China has been the best decision I’ve ever made. Beijing is a beautiful city with such great culture and so much to take in, it’s almost overwhelming . You can only see it for yourself though. So, to anyone who is interested in a new start, a new life or a new adventure… I recommend New Life to help you make that dream come true. Just take the first steps and New Life will do the rest! Thanks again guys! I couldn’t have done it without you.
My name is Dana and I arrived in Beijing from Canada in March.
Brendan and his crew made the process comfortable and smooth! Once leaving my home country, I had no worries and had a sense of ease knowing I was in good hands and would be taken in by a reputable team. They answered any questions I had quickly and honestly. They stand behind their word and you can feel safe in trusting in ESL. They are your biggest fans, and stand behind you in the moment you arrive, to the moment you begin teaching for your first time. Special thanks to Brendan and your laidback personality. You made this huge leap for me worthwhile, and it has completely changed my life. Thanks for being that huge factor in this new chapter of my life. Way 2 go ESL & for many many more years (forever)
I cannot say enough about Brendan, Derrick, and New Life ESL. I’m two weeks into teaching in China and the the transition has been pain free thanks to their efforts. They worked with me to match me with a school that fit what I was looking for and have been quick to answer all of my questions. Even now they still check in with me to make sure everything is going ok!

Brendan, Derrick and team have been amazing in helping to make my ESL dreams a reality. From the beginning they put my mind at ease and answered all the questions I had, no matter how silly they seemed. They kept me confident in my decision to teach in China. Now that I have arrived they still keep open communication with me to insure a smooth transition and continued support. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into finding me a job and starting my New Life in China!
Just want to give New Life ESL my complete endorsement for helping to place me at a language school in the South. They gave me a lot of support and answered all of my questions and were very accessible. I spoke mostly with Monica and Brendan, and their Chinese partners through Skype. Unfortunately at the last minute a family emergency prevented me from heading out. I hope that I will be able to go through the process again once an opportunity arises. THANK YOU THANK THANK YOU, you guys are awesome!

Great communication and professional approach to finding jobs for potential teachers going to China!
Hey Brendan! As you might know, I’m leaving China today 🙁 I am just messaging you, to thank you, Monica, Derrick (The whole New Life ESL team!!) for everything you have done for me! This experience was unforgettable and so fulfilling!!! I am really glad I came to China through you guys!!! Thank you for the non-stop support and for legit caring!! I will be forever grateful to you guys for this experience. Thank you again! And all the best for the New Life Journey! May you continue to grow and take over China hahaha Lots of love, Jolynn!!
These guys/gals are AWESOME!
As a military veteran, I am very careful and precise when it comes to working overseas for a company. I was a private security contractor in Afghanistan for 2 years after getting out of the Navy in 2010. Even with the great money provided by those jobs, there was no real contact with my company after getting dropped in the desert.
From day 1 of messaging Brendan and Derrick about my interest in a teaching position, they have been like mentors. This was not my first time inquiring about NewlifeESL either, I did it about a year ago, and made the decision not to go to China… this time, I said heck, lets do it. Derrick remembered me from last year, and every question I had was answered via email and skype.
Brendan was my “official” contact, and he has also had constant contact with me. This has instilled trust in the company, something very important to a military veteran like me. They will tell you how it is, and won’t just divulge the great things about teaching here in China, but also the bad. This is a sign of a great company that wants GOOD teachers that are a GOOD fit.. and the only way to do this is by being HONEST.. I highly recommend the article on the Newlifeesl website that explains what types of people thrive in China. It’s not for everyone, but if you are adventurous, independent, open-minded, and love to travel while making good money, come on over.
My experience so far has been awesome. I am teaching in Jinan, Shandong, China. I was thrown right into the thick of things, teaching 3 classes within 3 days of getting here. Was it a challenge? YES. Would I have it any other way? Helllll no! It’s cheap, beautiful, the people are wonderful, and did I mention the kick ass food?
Since arriving in China, Brendan and Derrick have been right behind me the whole way. They don’t just drop you in and leave you hanging. They are like mom and dad, and are genuinely interested in your success and life in China.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NEWLIFEESL if you want to leave your boring ass job in the western world and learn what a real adventure is. However, if you love sitting behind a desk listening to some jackass in a suit tell you what to do all day while going home to your blown up Ikea apartment, then please, stay on Paper Street with Mr. Durden and Ms. Singer…. because this isn’t the place for you!
PS: Add me on Facebook if you’d like to chat, ask questions, or if you are in China, connect with another expat gone native!
