Our school was established for the purpose of providing high quality English education to the youth of South China.

With only 6 to 10 students per class you will have the opportunity to know all your students very well and enjoy seeing them grow both in English ability and as individuals.

We provide you with a vast array of materials, venues and support that you would require to share your talents and interests with your students. Our schools have fully functioning kitchens, cafes, computer labs, cinemas and interactive whiteboards to assist you as well.

Our teachers are initially provided with a week-long introductory training period to familiarize themselves with the curriculum, understand our philosophy and learn more about teaching here. In addition to the initial training, our school holds periodic training workshops to focus on certain aspects of teaching.

Teach English in Quanzhou

Quanzhou is a fast growing medium sized Chinese city (understanding that a medium sized Chinese city is a few million people). Quanzhou is part of a cultural area known as Minnan and shares much of its culture with Taiwan, including the language. This area is known for its religious history and is filled with many historical temples, interesting ancient architecture and traditional puppetry. Quanzhou has many traditional foods that visitors can try, including plentiful seafood as it is close to the sea.

Quanzhou is located in one of the most livable areas of China. With its proximity to the sea, Quanzhou enjoys a moderate climate with hot, humid summers and mild winters. Quanzhou is also in one of the least polluted regions in all of China. Fujian province is mountainous and known for being the most forested in China. Cities in China can feel very urban but excursions to the mountains or costal regions are not hard to find; even hour long respites to the many local parks can be quite refreshing.
