    Question HK vs. S'HAI: which has higher demand for English teachers?

    Considering checking out hk in the near future. I've been looking into s'hai a bit as well. I'm leaning towards hk cause i've previoulsy lived in tokyo and most people say its not too different. easier adjustment for me...ideally..
    my main concern is demand for teachers. i guess i just missed the start of the school year..how easy do u think it is to find work?

    I have a BA
    white
    male
    26
    two years teaching experience in Tokyo and Hawaii
    no teaching certifications

    People in s'hai were saying it's generally easier there. your thoughts?

    oh, and what is an average wage/salary to expect?

    thanx so much(in advance!)

    If you are looking for visa sponsorship I would suggest Shanghai. For HK, have a look at jobsDB.com, classifiedpost.com, bigenglish.com to get an idea.

    Shanghai has a larger demand by far, for English teachers.
