WHAT OUR STAFF SAY

Our York English testimonials are from a growing community of over 105 international teachers from all over the world. We have staff who came to us from a variety of backgrounds and for a variety of reasons.

But everyone remembers what it’s like to move to a new country, learn a new language and make brand new friends from different places. It’s this common bond that makes for such a great culture and community here at York English.

Read what our international teachers, who are in different positions in different branches, have to say about life in Fuzhou, working for York, as well as their reasons for arriving. In this series of York English testimonials we hope you will find that there are people here who just like you, who were just a nervous, or just as experienced as you are, and they made the leap to China and to York English.
