WHAT OUR TEACHERS SAY

Our York English testimonials are from a growing community of over 130 international teachers from all over the native English speaking 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. We hope you will find that there are people here who are 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!

Watch our videos below, or on our Youtube channel. 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. Shenzhen, Xiamen & Changle testimonials are coming soon!
