Shane English School Taiwan Marks Group's 40th Anniversary

Next year will be the 40-year-anniversary of Shane English School. To celebrate, Shane English School Taiwan ran a big marketing campaign in May to raise awareness and open discussion – Lecture Tour of Children’s Education.

This big campaign was held in three main cities in Taiwan – Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung. We were honored to invite the famous children’s books writer Wang Wen Hua as our presenter. His professional knowledge and humour brought a lot of different concepts to parents and teachers. The number of registrants over three sessions were very positive: over 600 parents and teachers came and had a great time with us.

Related news about this campaign was published in Parenting Magazine in May and June. Parenting Magazine is a very popular magazine in Taiwan whose target audience are teachers and parents with 4- to 15-year-old children. This age range just happens to match the age range of our students. Through this media exposure, Shane Schools’ brand is known by far more parents and teachers in Taiwan.

Here are some highlights of this campaign:


Shane English School in Shanghai Public Schools


Shane English Shanghai has been running a very successful English program in Shanghai’s Changning District for several years. The program combines the best of ESL methodologies to deliver fun and engaging lessons to students. At present, the program focuses on grades 1 to 5 and the main emphasis is speaking practice. Foreign teachers work closely with their Chinese counterparts to ensure that students get a well-rounded education.

Each school in the program is typically assigned one or two teachers, depending on class load. A normal work week (Monday to Friday – 8am to 4pm) consists of 20 teaching hours and 20 preparation hours. Classes are usually 35 to 40 minutes long. As an essential part of the school body, teachers take part in all school activities, such as Sports Days and other extramural activities. The program offers teachers a lot of support, from the initial training to detailed teaching materials, as well as follow-up observations and feedback sessions.

Teachers really enjoy working in this program and tend to re-sign for at least an additional year. Students look forward to these classes all day because they are different from their usual classes. Students are encouraged to be creative and do activities in their text book mixed in with some fun games, songs, etc.

The success of this program led multiple teacher training workshops with the Chinese English teachers. The workshops covered Teaching Methodology, English Salons, Intensive English Practice and Western Culture. We have learned a great deal from running this program and hope to improve and expand it in the years to come.

Shane English School Vietnam: A Day at the Zoo

shane-vietnam-zoo-2016Shane English Centre Vietnam broke with normal routines for two weekends to take groups of students to the zoo. Students, teaching assistants, and teachers, bright green in the Shane livery, had a chance to communicate in English outside of the classroom, spend some quality time together, and create shared experiences that will fuel classroom conversations for weeks to come.

Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens was commissioned by French admiral Pierre de la Grandiere in 1864, and is notable for its picturesque canopy of aged trees, its central location, and its extensive collection of animals, including tigers, crocodiles, and rhinos.

Shane Thailand Opens School Number Six!


Shane English Schools Thailand is pleased to announce the opening of our 6th school at the Harbor Mall in Pattaya. This is our second location in Pattaya, and we’re excited to offer quality British English education at the biggest family entertainment complex in ASEAN.

Expanding on their Chonburi City prototype, Managing Director Thanapon Piromplat and General Manager Thanya Nutthawutthisit envisioned an atmosphere which fosters a family-friendly feeling, while accommodating our increasing student enrollment. The school includes 5 classrooms, a level check room, a teacher’s room, and a dedicated business English classroom. Interestingly, each classroom is named after a British historical landmark, which strongly promotes students’ interest in British culture and language.

During the opening, Thanapon and Thanya were busy as they promoted the school and educated parents and students on the Shane experience. Assistant School Directors Khwannate and Wanlapa were their energetic selves, keeping students entertained as they awaited their demonstration class to begin. It was a lot of fun to interact with the students as they learned about primary colours. Moreover, it was entertaining to see them running around and having fun with the colour game, as they hoped to be the first student to touch the correct colour!

The grand opening was a complete success and was conducted over the course of two days. During this time, over 70 level checks were conducted! To my surprise, our student composition consists of students from all over the word, including Thailand, Korea, and Japan.

It was a great honour to be a part of such a special day, and we hope to do it again very soon!
