Most of our students start with some English ability, with their reading and writing skills better than their listening and speaking.

Reviews from Current and Previous ESL Teachers
My work gives me a valuable insight into the culture, especially at my social clubs, where I often learn from my students as much as they learn from me. I have been a teacher for almost ten years, but I feel that my teaching is more worthwhile and more rewarding as it actually makes a huge difference here. – Paul Rudd (Jiangsu)
My name is Melissa and I have been working in this centre since February 2012. During this time I have found them to be a great employer that provides a pleasant working environment as well as ongoing training and support for their teachers. Since moving to Shanghai from Australia over a year ago, I have experienced a completely different and unique culture. Shanghai has proven to be an incredibly exciting and fast-paced city to live, and one that I am proud to call "home". – Melissa Black (Shanghai)
I have been working here since 2008 and it has been an enjoyable experience. I'm very happy to work with young professional people, who make a dynamic team united by the common goal.
