Teaching English in Foshan

Foshan is known to many for its origins. Long ago, a temple upon the hill shone a radiant light, drawing locals to the top where they discovered three ancient bronze Buddha statues. To this day, these findings are a symbol of the city.

Today, Foshan is a metropolis of 3 million people living prosperously thanks to the area’s strengthening infrastructure and tourism market.

Located in the Pearl River Delta area, the city has a number of temples, parks and shopping streets that make it a paradise for foreigners.

With the convenience of western-style apartments and dining options, the traditional culture still manages to thrive, giving teachers in Foshan the chance to experience the best of both worlds.
