Who are we?

Élan is an English language arts training service provider to children aged 5-12 in China. The first élan school opened in March 2013. Now there are 16 élan schools in operation in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Foshan. In early 2016, élan school was acquired by Country Garden Education Group (recently rebranded as Bright Scholar Education Group, a NYSE publicly-listed company), which is one of the largest education providers in China with over 30,000 students and 60,000 employees.


What do we do?

At élan, we teach English through engaging with literature and writing practice for students aged 5-12. In the beginning, it’s likely that you will predominantly take on Phonics, Early Reader Program, and lower level literature/writing coursework with the opportunity to teach picture books, novels, grammar, and different writing mediums in the future.


Each of the centers has a Library with over 5000 original English books. Students signing up for our Library follow our specially-developed Guided Reading Program designed to make students become independent readers while furthering their joy of reading.
