Language Requirements to Work in China

To get a job in China you do not have to speak Chinese. Some jobs may want a low level and some may want a high level of Chinese. That being said there are plenty of jobs that require absolutely zero level of Chinese. English is sufficient to find a job in China. In some cases, if you do not speak English you still can find a job.

Depending on your desired job, speaking Chinese can help considerably. Speaking even a little Chinese helps to build a relationship and bond, and can impress potential employers. In some cases employers will want you to speak Chinese. As a suggestion I would say learn something. At least the bare basics to say in the interview, and express you are learning. This shows a general interest in the culture and language, which will show will with your future employer.
