Can I pay off my student loans?

Most of ESL jobs website will redirect you to Thailand or South Korea, it is great if you want to visit the country and teach but unfortunately the salaries are low or the cost of living is too high. Luckily, in China the salary with us is always high and the cost of living is low.
What is the cost of living in China?
The cost of living in China is way lower than the cost of living in the USA, Australia, New Zealand or the UK. The cost of living varies depending on your city, of course rural areas are cheaper than big cities. Usually a teacher can save 80% of his salary, or more depending on his location.
