Recently our Managing Director, Richard Whalley, was lucky enough to visit China to see how EducationCity.com is being used across schools that are teaching English.
In particular, he wanted to see how activities were being used as an integral part of the English programme of learning and experience for himself how popular it is with so many Chinese pupils.
Whilst there he visited 11 schools with our local partner, EPSO (Beijing). At each school, Richard was greeted by welcoming displays and performances from the children and he was lucky enough to take part in classroom activities using EducationCity.com.
Families in China are embracing the English language and are keen to give their children an early advantage by ensuring they have opportunities to learn the language and also understand the British culture. One school even had a dining room where children would learn about the way we eat our food.
Schools have embraced the EducationCity characters and have displayed them all around the classrooms and school corridors. There is even an EducationCity.com school being opened by the BEST Kindergarten Group in Shenyang, Northern China.
The work in China is a continuation of the global growth of EducationCity.com in areas where the English language is an important part of a child’s education and also in international English speaking schools.
