Tesol in ChinaChina has long been an enigma to much of Western society. As the third-largest country in the world by area, this diverse and complex land has been home to some of history's most notable eras and events. Today's visitor can see evidence of those milestones: the Great Wall, the terra-cotta soldiers, Mao Zedong's mausoleum, Tiananmen Square - the list goes on.

It could take countless vacations to China to see all there is, but six months or a year spent teaching there is a sure way to get an inside look at this fascinating country.
China comprises one of earth's oldest civilizations and has remained relatively secluded - for many years Christian missionaries were the only English speakers to make extended stays there. As a result, China's political and economic systems have to a large degree isolated its people from Western influence. In recent years the growing global economy has demanded change in China, and the country's leaders have been struggling to respond. For example, although the economic reforms of Deng Xioaping during the 1970s and 1980s did much to increase production on China's farms, only 15 to 20 percent of China's land is suitable for farming. And even this arable land is shrinking due to industrialization, urbanization, and flooding. This crisis of an increasing population and a decreasing capacity to produce food has led to China's infamous government-promoted birth-control programs.

Vaccination Requirements

Currently there are no required immunizations for travel to China, but check with your local consulate to make sure this policy has not changed. Depending on how long you are staying in China and whether you will be spending your time in urban or rural areas, there are different vaccinations that are recommended by travel health specialists. Discuss your travel needs with a doctor that specializes in travel medicine. Universities often have travel clinics that provide a less expensive way of getting your vaccinations. The most useful vaccinations for China are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, tetanus/diptheria, Japanese encephalitis, and typhoid fever. Some doctors also recommend getting a rabies shot and taking malaria pills.
For up-to-the-minute information on vaccination requirements and disease information, call the International Traveler's Hotline in Atlanta at (404) 332-4559, which is sponsored by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This service regularly updates its recorded message for each country.
