TEFL Courses in Shanghai | China
Our TEFL course in eastern China is located in the country’s largest city, Shanghai. Known as the “Paris of the East” due to the European influence on its architecture, Shanghai is a popular destination for business travelers and tourists alike. The city is renowned for its historical landmarks such as the Bund and Yu Garden as well as its more contemporary style demonstrated in the buildings that make up the famous Lujiazui skyline.
Shanghai’s eclectic mix of buildings in different architectural styles points back to the city’s past as a thriving centre of trade and shipping both locally and globally. The 19th century saw the arrival of Western powers that sought to take advantage of Shanghai’s economic potential and left their mark in the buildings they erected in their designated districts. One of these areas known as the Bund has an extensive variety of architectural styles from the neoclassical HSBC building to the Art Deco Sassoon house. In fact, Shanghai is home to the world’s largest collection of Art Deco buildings due to a boom in construction in the 1920’s and 1930’s. More recently, Shanghai’s architecture has been influenced by its re-emergence as a global economic powerhouse. With contemporary buildings such as the Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Oriental Art Center and Shanghai World Financial Center marking the growing wealth of the city, Shanghai blends the new and the old as it does the East and the West.
But the city is not all about its architecture. As with any international city, Shanghai has a thriving nightlife with some of the best clubs in Asia, if not the world. The city abounds with quality eateries where you can enjoy world class food and amazing shops offering all you could want or need. Shanghai is also served by a large and well connected public transport network comprising of subways, buses and taxis, and is also connected to three national high-speed railways providing convenient access to the wider country.
The course accommodation is located just a short subway ride from the training centre, and all of the main tourist attractions can be reached within seven subway stops. Within walking distance of the accommodation you will find some of the best nightclubs Shanghai has to offer as well as fantastic dining and shopping areas.
