Capital of Jiangsu province, Nanjing is China’s education hub, hosting more universities and students than anywhere else in the country.
With a population of over 8 million, the city is packed with history having twice served as the capital of China, but still offers all the modern comfort expected from an international city. It is entirely possible to find thousand-year-old palaces, traditional Nanjing duck restaurants, street food vendors and super-modern, high-rise shopping malls all on the same street.
Nanjing is also one of China’s major transportation hubs, with a bullet train able to take you to Shanghai (1.5 hours), Suzhou (1 hour), or even Beijing (4 hours), and a major international airport.
Our company Education First stands as a proud and well-established member of the global EF community. Our first school in Nanjing opened in 2002 and we have been growing rapidly ever since.
We now have 6 centers in the city with more than 40 full time native English teachers and over 3,000 students studying with us. A further 2 schools are planned to open later this year, and school’s 9 and 10 in 2019.
We teach a variety of classes to students aged from 3-18. Our group size per class is kept small – 10 or 12 depending on age - to give our students the best experience possible, and we use a variety of different approaches to make sure all learner styles are accounted for in our lessons.
Our teachers benefit from a huge amount of ongoing professional support and development from both their mentors in school and from the city-wide trainer team. We hold a new teacher onboarding program that includes an in-depth explanation of the courses, curriculum, resources and methodology. To hone teaching skills further, we offer continuous professional development weekly so our team can proudly say they are the best English teachers in the city.
