Nanjing Foreign Language School (NFLS) is one of the first foreign language schools established under the direct guidance of our beloved late Premier Zhou Enlai.

NFLS advocates the spirit of seeking the truth, scaling heights, and being erudite and modest. It also emphasizes teaching that is “strict, careful, creative and flexible”. The educational target of NFLS is to produce high-quality talented students who are ambitious, patriotic, ethical, and broad-minded. These students are also civilized, erudite, creative, proficient in certain fields, and experts at foreign languages; integrating both knowledge and practice using a healthy body and a sharp mind. In brief, NFLS aims at producing international multi-talented graduates who have a good command of foreign languages with a wide knowledge of Science and Art including powerful abilities to integrate these subjects.

During the last forty years since its establishment, NFLS has been following the educational principles of humanism; paying great attention to cultivating its students’ sense of being the masters of the classroom; developing their potential and actively pursuing quality-oriented education. As a result, it has achieved remarkable accomplishments.

The campus of NFLS occupies 45,000 square meters with 55 classes and 2828 students. Its staff and teaching faculty include 265 people among whom are seven special rank teachers and sixty-three senior teachers. Four languages – English, German, French, and Japanese – are taught in NFLS. To date, more than 5,000 graduates have been turned out from the halls of Nanjing Foreign Language School.

Based on the learning style of being discreet and practical, NFLS fully respects the development of individual students and strives to create an educational atmosphere of democracy, openness, liveliness, and harmony, which is the spirit and pride of NFLS. A special feature of the School is the large variety of opportunities available for the students to develop their other abilities. Students acquire the unity of knowledge and practice by “playing in learning” and “learning by playing”, through all kinds of activities, such as the Foreign Language Festival, an Arts Festival, the Reading Festival, Science Week, organized Sports, Spring and Autumn outings, concerts, the Students Union, displays of talent (dance, music, art) on the campus, speech competitions and debates.
