EF English First has over 200 English schools in over 60 cities across China. EF schools spread from east to west and north to south providing plenty of choice for our teachers. The majority of EF’s English Language schools are in China’s major cities: Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. These cities offer a mix of modern and traditional Chinese culture with a dash of western influence. The remaining schools are located in China’s up and coming cities offering a more local feel. Wherever you choose to teach English, EF English First will provide you with a one-of-a-kind experience.
GUANGZHOU AND SHENZHEN
With schools all around China, there are various experiences for English language teachers to have. Our schools in Guangzhou are located throughout the city, so no matter where you go, you’ll be close to delicious dim sum and bohemian bars with fantastic music.
Nearby in Shenzhen, schools are surrounded by green parks and shopping malls. A short bus ride away is the beach! Yes, beaches exist in China and they’re as pristine as anything you’ll find in Southeast Asia. If for some reason you decide to venture out of Shenzhen, then you’re in luck. Shenzhen’s closest neighbour is Hong Kong. In a short bus or train ride you could be enjoying a day or two in one of the world’s most exciting cities without breaking the bank.
UP AND COMING CITIES
For those wishing to have a more immersive experience, many of our English schools in China are located in provincial capitals and other large cities, often with just one school per city. The locations of our language schools each promise their own charm: in Urumqi, you can explore the desert and culture while living in two different time zones at the same time! Experience the rich ethnic diversity in Nanjing. Live along the beautiful northern coastlines of Rizhao, known as the City of Sunshine in Chinese. Live amongst the limestone peaks of Yangshuo near Guilin. With over 50 cities to choose from, the only problem you’ll have is making a decision about where to live!
