Earlier last month, another incident involving foreign teachers caused outrage, when 16 foreign nationals－se
ven teachers from the Xuzhou branch of EF Education First and nine stu亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所
dents from nearby schools－were among 19 people detained in Xuzhou, Jiangsu pro

EF Education First, an international company that specializes in language train
亚博足球app官网楼凤ing, issued a statement saying that it forbids employees to possess or use narcotics or controlled substances, and th
e contracts of the teachers would be terminated if they were found to have been involved in illegal drug use.
The incidents triggered a flood of posts on social media platforms, with some dema亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所
nding that the establishments be closed, while others called for the teachers to be deported.
But even if that happens, more foreign teachers will follow in their wake because the soaring de亚博足球app官网楼凤
mand for English-language teachers means that finding a job is little more than a formality for many foreigners.
Last year, 300 million people in China were learning English, according to the Chinese Acad
亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所emy of Social Sciences, which noted that there were 50,000 English-language teaching estab
lishments in the country and the market was worth as much as 500 billion yuan ($71 billion).
However, according to the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, of the 400,000 foreign nationals wo亚博足球app官网楼凤
rking in China’s education sector in 2017, more than 60 percent were reported to be illegally employed.
According to a regulation issued by SAFEA, all foreign teachers mu亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所
st hold a valid work visa, be a native speaker with a bachelor’s degree or higher and have at le
ast two years’ related teaching experience. In addition, they must not have a criminal record.
In addition to the favorable policies, the city launched fast-track medical services for foreign experts through a WeChat account.
Chloe Emma Puccia, a foreign expert at the Heping IELTS English test training cen亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所
ter, said she was supported by a medical service plan after a recent car accident.
She was grateful for the speedy help and told the foreign experts affairs authorities s
亚博足球app官网楼凤he would work until retirement and help promote Tianjin’s scheme to other foreign experts around China.
In April, Tianjin ranked among the Ministry of Science and Te
chnology’s Top 10 Amazing Cities for attracting foreign experts for the eighth time.亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所
Northeastern province to ban release of some animals to safeguard ecosystem
A revised draft of Heilongjiang’s Wild Animals Protection Regulation, presented to the Standing Committee of t
亚博足球app官网楼凤he provincial People’s Congress recently, aims to strengthen protection of wildlife habitats and food chains.
It said those transporting and selling wildlife and related products should follow laws and provide relevant certificates.
The regulation would ban the unauthorized release of aquatic animals into the亚博足球app官网楼凤
wild and the releasing of animals that may interfere with residents’ normal lives and harm the ecosystem.
The regulation would also ban the release of wild animal species that are not nat
亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所urally found in Heilongjiang or come from outside the northeastern province or overseas.
Organizers and participants in tourism, animal viewing, photography and video activities
should not interfere with the growth and reproduction of wild animals or destroy the habitats of wild animals.亚博足球app官网楼凤
Those violating the rules could face fines of up to 10,000 yuan ($1,420).
Wildlife expert Zhang Wei, a professor at Northeast Forestry University, in Harbin, the provincial capital, said the current regulat
ion, in force since 1996, was unable to meet the practical demands of wildlife protection. The new version, fol亚博足球app官网楼凤女神会所
lowing the basic principles of the Law on Protection of Wildlife, was significant and necessary.
