Since we opened in 2001, we have experienced tremendous growth as a language school, providing high quality lessons for children and teens. There is one location in the city center and we currently have over a dozen foreign teachers from the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. As we have grown our team, we have expanded our reputation as the premier English language center in Xia'men.
All the resources and materials you'll need for teaching are right here in the school. These include a catalog of flashcards, props, course books, online materials, in addition to years of collective teacher-produced supplementary handouts on our shared teachers' server. Each classroom has an IWB (interactive whiteboard) and internet connection. The IWBs are easy to use, and help bring lessons to life. Teachers are given full training on how to use the technology available in school, so technophobes need not fear!
Our Young Learners (3-6 year old students) courses are grouped by developmental stages, and with no more than 12 students per group, allow for maximum interaction between student and teacher. The next age group (7-10 year olds), and (11-14), are grouped by English ability, with a maximum class size of 18.
Each class has a local teaching assistant, who is there to help students review previously-learned language, assist with classroom management, and also liaise with students' parents about each child's progress.
About Xia'men Island:
Located at the southeast coast of China, Xiamen is a tourist city of Fujian Province famous for its attractive seascape. As one of the major seaports since ancient times, the name of 'Xiamen' was consequently given (it literally means 'gate of China').
The city has been called the Egret Island because of the hundreds of thousands of egrets inhabiting there. This is due to the beautiful natural scenery, the fresh air and the clean environment of the city.
Xiamen is an ideal tourist destination and is one of the most livable cities in China. It boasts abundant tourist attractions such as islands, mountains, temples and parks, etc., providing you with a full sightseeing schedule. The well-known Gulangyu Island, South Putuo Temple and other tourist areas like Jimei, Hulishan Battery, Wanshiyan, etc. are highly recommended. A sea tourist line is also available for you to enjoy the amazing scenery of many beautiful small islands around.
Located in the center of Liaoning Province on the bank of the Hun River, Shenyang has a history that stretches back thousands of years. While modern Shenyang grows bigger by the day, glimpses into the past can still be found. Cultural and historical relics, from Neolithic ruins to Qing palaces, are still well preserved.
