Our students are our number one priority.  A child’s education is something that they carry with them for the rest of their life, so the lessons they learn need to be carefully thought out and properly executed.  Our goal is to give students the exposure they need in order to become proficient in English, as well as help them develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills it takes to become a responsible global citizen.

Students are all either junior or senior high school students, representing grades 7 through 12, with the age-range being between 12 and 18 years.The students in the UEI program attend public junior high and high schools situated in small to mid-size cities, and come from middle-income families. These students are used to a more teacher-centered classroom, meaning they are used to a more lecture-style classroom rather than an interactive style of learning.

The class size is typical in China for this grade level, with an average student-teacher ratio of 50:1.Each week, teachers will conduct two 45-minute lessons for each class, totaling 20 classroom hours per week. With 32 lessons per semester and 64 lessons per academic year, teachers and students will spend a significant time learning together.
