Our first school opened in 1996, and has since grown to over 100 schools in nearly 60 cities across China. We currently employ over 300 foreign teachers from the United States, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, South African and the United Kingdom.
We take a four skills approach to learning English - focusing on speaking and listening as well as reading and writing. We use a blended style of learning, and integrate technology into the classroom to provide students with an engaging and exciting learning tool.
We specialize in communicative English training for students from three years old to adults. The majority of our student population however, are students from 3-16. The language proficiency level of the students ranges from absolute beginner to advanced, and students are placed in a class with peers of similar age and language ability. Class sizes are small, usually from 10-18 students. Younger students are taught in English by a foreign teacher, and in English and Chinese by a bilingual teacher's aide.
We believe in ongoing training, support, and development of our team, and provide excellent opportunities for professional development and advancement within our network of schools across China. Our team is growing, and we're looking for teachers who are enthusiastic about teaching, culturally inquisitive, and prepared for an adventure of a lifetime.
