School Age

Normally, Chinese children begin their studies from the age of three in Kindergarten for a period of 3 years, where English will be taught in most cities.

Primary and secondary education inChinais composed of three stages: primary school, junior middle school and senior middle school, with a total length of study of 12 years . Generally, the length of study at primary school is six years; Whereas junior middle school education is basically universal, students who have graduated from primary schools may, without examination, advance to the appropriate junior middle schools. Junior middle school graduates may enter senior middle schools after passing examinations which are set by the individual local education  authorities.

Many children attend English Summer Camps during the month of July. We have dealings with these and are able to place you for a three week period in addition to your semester work, or indeed independently of. Should just a Summer Camp interest you, then please see our section under that heading.
