Jump into a New Adventure with First Leap in China

First Leap English, a business unit of TAL Education Group (NASDAQ, TAL), established in Beijing in 2009, is flourishing and expanding across China, with over 30, 000 students, and top 3 brand recognition in the Chinese education industry. Created to provide much-needed quality English training for children aged 2 – 15 years old, in a fun, motivating and entirely English speaking environment.

Rather than teaching English as a subject, we teach different subjects in English, a method based on and incorporating several educational theories. Our curriculum is not only already developed, but each lesson has been pre-prepared and tested. Our classrooms feature smart board technology, a limit of just 14 students per class and a Chinese teaching assistant.
