Teacher Testimonials

“From the moment I arrived in China and was met at the airport – apprehensive, travel-stained and (very) jet-lagged – the school’s staff were always on hand to ensure that I was able to adapt to life in this new country as quickly and smoothly as possible. They were always ready and willing to help with any problems or difficulties, both inside and outside the school. Living so far away from home, in a country like China it is really important to know that there are people there on hand to have your back in case of any difficulties. The school’s staff definitely helped in this regard, allowing me to easily adjust to my new lifestyle.”

I’ve been working at the school for approaching four years now. I honestly couldn’t be happier with my placement here. The school has expanded and relocated since I’ve been here which reflects the schools ambition. When coming to China to teach and live it can be daunting as there are so many horror stories about how schools here can mess you around with pay or scheduling etc. The school is professionally run with a great and friendly team of Chinese support staff who will do anything and everything you need them to in order to settle in here well. The location of the school is perfect for everyday tasks such as grocery shopping but also close by to a hub for foreigners to relax and socialize.
