If you’re wondering how to teach English online and travel the world as a digital nomad then you’ve come to the right place. Alternatively if you are a looking to work from home then this is also the place for you.
I’m about to give away the biggest secret to how I manage to earn a large income without having to “go to work”.
There are many companies you can use to teach English online, if you’re from the USA there are a lot more options than if you’re from the UK like me.
The company I work for is rapidly growing with more and more students each day so more and more teachers are needed!
There are many people who are promoting Palfish who don’t actually work for Palfish, I see it all the time. There are also people who are promoting Palfish who have only worked a couple of hours and are promoting their referral codes. My advice would be to get real advice and guidance from somebody who has been working for the company for over a year, somebody who has worked over a thousand hours on the app, like myself.
I am here to guide you through your Palfish application and help with any questions you may have. I’ve also got the resources and experience to give you advice on how to be successful. There is nothing I don’t know about this app and how it works.
If you’re unsure if an online company is legit, ask to see proof of hours worked, like this:
Before we begin I just want to let you know that if you use my referral code: 23678281 you will get a free lifetime access to my Palfish tips and tricks. If you decide to use my code to join Palfish, check your Palfish messages for the passwords. As one of the fasted growing teachers on the platform I made ¥53,459.19 Chinese Yuan in two months. (That’s £6,199.91 or $7,533.44).
Palfish is a Chinese app and can be very confusing without guidance. When I started working for Palfish almost a year ago I wish I had someone to help me through my first few months. Thats why I am writing this, I want to help people work online without the stress I endured.

Can Anyone Work For Palfish?
Yes. you don’t need a degree, you don’t need to be a mathematic genius, you do not need to be a native speaker to get paid to speak on the phone to adults. However you do need to be a native speaker to teach children. You’ll also need a TEFL (I got mine from wowcher for £19). If you’re from the US or Canada you might be able to find a course on Groupon. I usually recommend the “International Open Academy 120 Hour” course as it comes with a certificate code. This is not an affiliate or sponsored, just friendly advice. It takes most people a week to complete but I have seen people complete it in a day.
How Much Do You Get Paid on Palfish?
So for the Palfish official kids course the payment is between 55-75 yuan for a 25 minute class.
Thats: £12 – £17 per hour or $15.85 – $21.60 per hour (depending on current exchange rates).
Now, the reason the wage changes is because each month your wage is based on the hours that you put in the month before.
In order to get paid you’ll need a Payoneer account. This is a very safe and simple way of getting paid. I’ve been paid on time every month for year that I’ve been teaching on Palfish.
If you would like to get $25 for free when you make your first £1000, use this link: www.payoneer.com. That first £1000 will come around quickly if you have the time to put in. My first month on Palfish made me £740 and since then I’ve been working full time. (2020 update: I’m not only working part time as I’m converting a campervan, exciting!).
How To Become a Palfish Teacher
One of my favourite things about teaching on palfish is being able to choose my own schedule and literally work anywhere in the world (as long as there’s WiFi).
All you need when joining Palfish is a TEFL qualification. I got a massive discount on my qualification on wowcher.com and it cost me a grand total of £20 and took me two weeks to complete but it is easily doable in one week.
What Is The Palfish Interview?!
How To Pass The Palfish Interview:
Lucky for you, I’ve just made a whole blog post explaining exactly how to pass the Palfish interview! CLICK HERE to check it out.
What is Palfish?
There are two types of teaching on Palfish: “FreeTalk” and “OKC (Official Kids Course)”.
Freetalk is where you set your own rate and then you can “start tutoring” when ever you like and for as long as you like. People (mostly adults) will be able to call you to talk about what ever they like. Although I haven’t used the free talk option since I first started on Palfish, I’ve always had wonderful experiences from it. Being able to talk to people from China is so interesting. Most of the time they are happy to tell you all about their culture.
The Official Kids Course
The other type of teaching and what I choose to do five days a week is The Official Kids Course (OKC). Firstly you’ll need to take the interview. It’s a quick easy process of showcasing how you would teach a lesson. There’s nothing to worry about because all the lessons have pre planned slides a little like a power point presentation with lots of pictures and words. (See example below)
They even have a little box at the bottom of each page telling you what to say! So you just need to go through each slide with the child. And then once you’ve passed the interview, parents can book their children to have lessons with you. The more good reviews you get and the more hours you do, the more regular students you’ll get.
