Course Materials & Technology

Popular with students and teachers alike, our course books have been developed by a dedicated team of linguistic and educational experts. Course books are accompanied by a wide range of supplementary materials including flashcards, posters, handouts, CD’s, videos, songs and in-class computer applications, all essential for teachers to deliver varied and engaging classes.

Teachers make use of a variety of activities such as role plays, group work, competitions, drama, stories and songs to bring the classes to life. The class sizes are kept small, to an average of 8-12 students, which allows for noticeable progress to be made and also makes classroom management that much easier.

Ningbo is one of China’s oldest cities but has gone through plenty of changes in recent years. It is an economic center and has become the most developed city in Zhejiang province, just South of Shanghai on the East coast. The city has wonderful natural, cultural landscapes and historical sites to visit. The Tainyi Chamber was built in 1516 and is said to be the oldest surviving library building in China.

The weather in Ningbo is subtropical with humidity and distinctive seasons. Ningbo also has a well-developed and easily accessible transportation system. The school is located in a high-class neighborhood with shopping, restaurants and movie theater within walking distance or a short taxi ride.
