A ready-made community of like-minded people

Work, rest and play

Adjusting to life in China can be a challenge. At EF, we make this as smooth as possible by offering our teachers the chance to partake in social events and activities that they might be used to back home.

Our weekly football league is particularly successful, with each EF school competing against one another. All are welcome to join, regardless of footballing ability. We also offer weekly badminton and we’re always open to suggestions for different activities.

We’re also committed to providing regular team-building sessions. Recent activities include cookery classes, bowling and a trip to one of the China’s most famous tea fields, in nearby Longjing.


Food, glorious food!

If sports aren’t really your thing, then you need not worry. Eating out in restaurants is a big part of Chinese culture. 

Naturally, our teachers can frequently be seen out dining in one of the many excellent local or international restaurants that we have here in Hangzhou and Huzhou.

Most schools take part in weekly “family dinners” which may or may not be followed by another favourite local pastime; KTV, essentially Karaoke in one of the many lavish establishments we have here in Zhejiang province and across China as a whole.


Annual Gala

We recently celebrated another successful year with the annual end of year gala.

The night was a great success with food, drinks, awards and performances from our multi-talented staff. All our EF family members attended in formal attire, to celebrate this very special moment with us, and to welcome a great year ahead.

We look forward to next year’s event.
