English First (EF) is truly a global company, established in 1965 and now with over 400 centers around the world. EF opened its first school in China in 2001 and has since established itself as the market leader for private language learning with over 150 schools, employing over a thousand teachers. We have formed Academic Partnerships with Shanghai universities where we design and deliver EGP, EAP and CLIL courses which are fully integrated into the university degree programs.

The courses we offer range from general English which consist of verbal, listening and written English to Academic Purposes which prepares students to study in universities abroad. There are also Content and Language Integrated Learning courses where the students learn about the western culture or business English. Each classroom is equipped with blackboards, personal computers and projectors. The use of multimedia and Powerpoint is encouraged to make teaching and learning informative and interesting at the same time.

Teach English in Shanghai

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. The most vibrant and progressive city in China, Shanghai is the economic and cultural center, blending an incredible mix of Eastern and Western culture. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago, it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of Shanghai’s colonial past featuring grand European architecture.

For those who like to shop, party and eat, Shanghai has all you could possibly want and more. But despite its cosmopolitan reputation, pockets of quaint tradition remain alive and well, dotted throughout the city. Explore countless old markets, back streets crammed with local eateries and discover incense filled temples still central to the locals’ daily life.
