Their school has a very good standing in the Yuxi community and has the well earned reputation of being the best English school in the city.

Founded in Shanghai in 2000, this employer currently operates over 30 schools in over 24 different cities throughout the whole of China. Established in July 2008; they have become one of the best and most effective English schools in Yunnan province.

Currently, the school houses over 600 students. Ages range from 4 – 14 years old and our students’ English levels start from Complete Beginners going as high as Upper Intermediate level. Class sizes vary between 6 – 14 students and are divided according to age and ability. All of our teachers are guaranteed a broad range of classes representing the development and progression of our students. Our school has a very good standing in the Yuxi community and has the well earned reputation of being the best English school in the city.

Students are 4-16 years old and class sizes contain between 6-16 students. At this school, they welcome their teachers to use their creative skills to the best of their abilities. Learning a language is difficult, especially as a child, which is why they try to creatively teach their students in ways they are likely to understand.

This school has an ongoing commitment to the support and development of their teachers and students alike. They pride themselves on how well their teachers are looked after both inside and outside of the school. They also provide a professional, well organised and relaxing work environment. The modern, well equipped school, excellent teaching materials and engaging learning environment means that the present staff consisting of 7 native English speaking teachers can easily help the children to achieve the highest educational standard possible.

They are situated 90km south of Kunming which is the capital city of Yunnan province. Yunnan is home to 26 out of the 56 minority groups in China, all of which have their own language customs and cultures. In Yuxi there are a total of 9 counties and you will be based in the main area of the city, Hong Ta county. Which is named after the large tobacco company in the local area. The population of Yuxi is just over 2.5 million people. However, in this county alone, there are between 400,000-600,000 people.

Yuxi itself has a feeling of not being too big but also not being too small. There are a handful of western restaurants where you will definitely able to get some much craved home comforts from the local Walmart or Carrefour, which has recently opened. One of the biggest advantages of being in this part of the world is the scenery. Around 5km Outside of the city you will be completely surrounded by stunning mountains, rice terraces and waterfalls. It really is a great place for people who love the outdoors. The weather there is generally warm with around 9 months of sun per year. Temperatures are usually between 25-30 degrees in the summer and around 8-13 degrees in the winter.

When it comes to expat life in Yuxi, there isn’t an enormous expat community. However, there are around 80 foreigners in the city. Some of the foreigners are short term and some long term. There is quite a close, family like feel amongst the teachers and staff at the school. Everyone looks out for each other and will do as much as they can to make new teachers lives as comfortable as possible.
