EF Addresses COVID19
Here at EF English First, our mission has always been to “Open the World Through Education”. Despite the ongoing challenges of COVID-19, we remain committed to our mission, and continue to work at full capacity!
During this unique period, we wanted to provide some updates of the steps we are taking to protect our teachers and students, whilst continuing to ensure that our classes don’t skip a beat:
We continue to actively hire individuals to teach in schools all over China for an August 2020, or later, start date.
Our team will provide full support on the most feasible time to come to China, adhering to local and national guidelines.
Our teachers currently teach from their homes in China
All centers are closed, but will reopen as local government regulations allow.
The English For Angels initiative was initiated to provide FREE English language services to healthcare workers fighting the virus.
As things start to clear up in China with many schools preparing to open back up, we are here to assure you that we are Actively Hiring Now For Positions in China.
We are all in this together. Rest assured we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to support our teachers and communities as needed.
