TEFL Shanghai | TEFL China
Our TEFL course in eastern China is located in downtown Shanghai, “the Paris of the East.” It is the largest, most prosperous and populous city in China. Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum. It has been described as the "showpiece" of the booming economy of mainland China.
Shanghai has a rich collection of buildings and structures of various architectural styles. The Bund, located by the bank of the Huangpu River, contains a rich collection of early 20th-century architecture, ranging in style from neoclassical HSBC Building to the art deco Sassoon House. A number of areas in the former foreign concessions are also well-preserved, the most notable ones being the French Concession. Shanghai has one of the world's largest number of Art Deco buildings as a result of the construction boom during the 1920s and 1930s.
In recent years, a large number of architecturally distinctive and even eccentric buildings have sprung up throughout Shanghai. Notable examples of contemporary architecture include the Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Grand Theatre in the People's Square precinct and Shanghai Oriental Art Center. Despite rampant redevelopment, the old city still retains some buildings of a traditional style, such as the Yuyuan Garden, an elaborate traditional garden.
In addition to its unique architecture, Shanghai is home to some of the best restaurants, shopping and nightlife in all of Asia—and arguably the world. Whether you want to eat out for $2 or $200, all options are possible in Shanghai.
Our accommodation is located within walking distance of the hottest clubs in the city and a variety of shopping and fine (and affordable) dining hotspots. The center is a short subway ride away, and all major tourist attractions are within a distance of seven subway stops. TEFL course participants are welcome to find their own housing and we’d be happy to offer assistance.
