English Excel is a British-owned company that was founded in 2000. We have twelve English language learning centres across Hong Kong and we provide a high-quality learning environment for our students. We specialise in providing a high-quality, interactive and nurturing learning environment for students. Our classes offer an immersive English experience and they are strongly geared towards oral interaction as well as reading and writing. Our aim is for our students to go out in the world and use their English in social and professional interactions as well as gain their qualifications in English. We limit our class sizes to a maximum of 4 students;
this provides an ideal learning and teaching environment for our students but it also provides us with the opportunity to work on developing our students’ self-confidence as well as their English. Due to the small class sizes, we can place our students according to their level of English rather than their age. We are also a registered Trinity College London Examination Centre.
Our students enroll with us for a variety of reasons, here are some of the most common:
* Practice English
* Improve confidence in speaking English
* Prepare for primary and secondary school interviews – often there’s a part of the interview requiring children to speak in English.
* Learn phonics
* Improve reading, writing and grammar
* Have fun, meet with westerners and take away the scare factor that westerners can sometimes be perceived to have!We are looking for passionate and enthusiastic teachers to work in one of our twelve schools as part of a small team.
