From One of Our Teachers - Nazeem, South Africa, Cape Peninsula University of Technology. Length of stay at KNES: 2 years Moving to Kang Ning has been very rewarding for me as a teacher. From day 1 I was amazed at the level of competence the students possessed. As a result of the environment as well as the quality of the teachers they've had, the kids here have developed really strong language skills. The staff members here are friendly, helpful and very experienced, which made the transition here really easy. With innovative programs like the Whale and Dolphin classes, kids have room to develop at various levels, whether they've studied English before. With our new Panda class we hope to keep that success going into the future.

When my wife and I interviewed at Kang Ning we were impressed by the professionalism and organization of the school. Rather than just accepting our application for employment based on our native speaking ability and experience, Serena (the owner of the school) asked us to demo teach portions of a class individually and then interviewed us personally. I enjoy the classes that I teach here; the level of the students is generally much higher than other students that I have taught in other schools while in Taiwan. Classes are relatively small and being able to refer to a fully formed curriculum really cuts down on my overall preparation time.
Jhudong itself is a nice little town/city close to Hsinchu in north western Taiwan. It is small but has many conveniences such as drug stores, western fast food, a great night market and some good, cheap restaurants. It is close enough to Hsinchu that whatever you need but cannot find here is only a short distance away. On top of that it is probably the prettiest place that we have lived in almost 5 years in Asia and is surrounded by mountains that are excellent for weekend scooter rides and hikes. Rent is cheap and Taipei is only a 90 minute bus ride or a short High Speed Rail ride away so even though it has a small town feel it isn't isolated from places with more cultural attractions and activities.

I love the students at Kang Ning. They are enthusiastic and eager to learn. This makes teaching at Kang Ning such a rewarding experience. I believe that students should learn through fun and innovative ways. At Kang Ning a teacher's creative juices are allowed to flow, the staff are supportive which leads to an environment which stimulates learning and self expression.
