About The Fewer Things

The Fewer Things is a movement with a simple yet powerful goal: to break the norm of a nine to five, corporate office job. We will allow you to travel, teach and live in an environment which you can truly make a difference to others. Our main aim is to allow graduates to experience a new way of living and to show people that there is a way out of the daily grind. More free time, more travel, more money.

We offer a very personal service and will get you qualified and teaching in China within a short period of time. We have teamed up with different organisations to offer you free weekly fitness and yoga classes as well as receiving discounts and promotions for the best bars and restaurants in your city. We work with STA Travel to ensure everyone gets the best deals on their flights and insurance packages.


The teaching is exciting, engaging and leaves you wondering why you didn't apply sooner, you will be placed in a well-established modern-day school with a light work load. We cater the experience as close to your needs as possible, so let us know if you are looking to boost your teaching experience, add to your CV or looking to tick off as many things on your bucket list as possible.

As well as the teaching placement you will receive mentoring on how you could make the move to working and travelling for a living in something that you are passionate about.

We'd love to hear from you if you are enthusiastic, outgoing and ready to make a change in your life.

Whats included in the programme?

  • Pre-departure online TEFL course along with a three-day classroom-based course in Beijing
  • Two-week Beijing Summer Camp with accommodation and food included
  • Excellent salary and free accommodation
  • Paid vacation time through out placement
  • Discounted flights and tours on behalf of STA Travel
  • Personal mentoring and assistance from your coordinator
  • Discounts to bars, restaurants and even free weekly fitness classes.

Lastly, and most importantly we work with the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE) who are China’s nationwide not-for-profit organisation conducting international educational exchanges between China and the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. We have chosen to work with this organisation to not only ensure all successful applicants get a guaranteed placement in a city of their choice, but to also add an extra layer of safety and security once in China.

By working together, we ensure all teachers have a smooth transition moving into their new city and school.


Life is too short to be counting down the days until the weekend. Whilst here you will have the opportunity to earn good money and travel around Asia with ease. You receive all of the Chinese public holidays along with a special winter vacation in January between four to five weeks. This is the perfect opportunity to explore neighbouring countries such as: Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and many more.

It’s time for you to take back control of your life and be who you want to be.
