EF International Language Center, Shanghai, China

What we like about the school

  • One of the oldest Chinese schools in Shanghai founded in 1965

What we dislike about the school

  • Lessons are with 40 minutes shorter than in most schools

EF International Language Center (EF)

  • EF International Language Center Shanghai is located in the coastal modern megacity of Shanghai, in eastern China. As the most populated city in China, Shanghai offers students a unique look into life in China, in addition to living in a megacity, offering students a diverse range of activities, sites and attractions to make their time in Shanghai and with EF Shanghai as memorable as possible. The school is in an excellent location near People's Square and is just 5 minutes from links to public transport, ensuring that attractions such as the Bund, the Pudong district and Yuyuan Garden are all within easy reach. The city also has multiple Buddhist temples such as the Jade Buddha Temple and the Jing'an Temple, which is amongst the many attractions within walking distance of the school's ...
    front doors. The Shanghai Pudong International Airport is within a 45-minute taxi ride of the school.

    The school's facilities are exemplary, offering students' all they may need to reach their language goals from a comfortable environment. Classrooms have state-of-the-art technology, are spacious and have great lighting, offering fantastic opportunities for student engagement. These facilities include a cafeteria, a computer lab, lecture halls, study areas and a Student support desk for any questions or queries that arise. All classrooms are equipped with air conditioning, heating and ample natural light to ensure an optimal learning environment for all.

    EF was founded in Sweden in 1965. It has since then helped millions of people experience new cultures, see new places and learn new things about the world and about themselves. Across the globe, they have more than 600 schools and offices in over 50 countries, delivering the best in education and student care throughout all locations. As a group, EF has hubs in Boston, London, Barcelona, Mexico City, São Paulo, Shanghai, Stockholm, Zürich, and more!

    EF understands that language programmes can be much more than the sole process of learning a language, as cultural immersion and diversity play a key part in any student's educational and life development.

    Throughout the EF schools, programmes are readily available to adults and juniors, for career, personal and educational development.
