TEFL Shanghai | TEFL China

ITTT’s tesol course in eastern China is located in the heart of the country’s largest and most prosperous city. Shanghai is at the center of China’s economic revolution and is a world financial center as well as the home to the busiest container port in the world. Long a center of international trade and shipping, Shanghai is a fascinating blend of East and West, old and new and its unique atmosphere is what draws people from around the world looking to explore the city’s past, present and future.

Shanghai’s diverse collection of buildings in a variety of architectural styles reflects its past as a center of international trade and finance. The number of districts given over to countries from around the world gives Shanghai an interesting and unique atmosphere. Many of these areas are well-preserved and attract visitors from around the globe. During the 1920’s and 1930’s Shanghai underwent a construction boom leaving it with the world’s largest collection of Art Deco buildings.

China’s economic rise of recent years has left its mark on the shape of Shanghai today and a large number of distinctive modern buildings have risen alongside the more traditional Chinese architectural styles and those of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Contemporary buildings such as the Oriental Pearl Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center sit side-by-side with the European influenced style of areas such as the Bund and the traditional Chinese areas of the City God Temple and Yuyuan Garden.

Shanghai benefits from a wide ranging public transport network covering the major centers of the city. The city is also connected to Beijing by a high-speed rail service that takes just over four hours to travel between the two cities. Shanghai is also home to some of the best nightlife, shopping and dining experiences in Asia and has a number of other interesting attractions including the Shanghai Natural History Museum and the Shanghai Art Museum.

Accommodation for the course is within walking distance of some of the best nightclubs and restaurants in the city and the training center is only a short subway ride away. All the major tourist attractions can be reached within just seven subway stops from the accommodation. TESOL course attendees are also welcome to arrange their own accommodation and we are happy to assist if needed.

Shanghai is an interesting blend of the East and West. There are districts that are distinctly Chinese but also districts that reflect a more European style with classic Parisian and English Tudor buildings in the areas dominated by the French and British.
