Set in a beautiful 1920s French Concession villa with an outside courtyard, this school on Gaolan Lu is associated with Jikei Educational Group, the biggest vocational educational group in Japan. Join group classes, small groups or one-on-one sessions, and students can tailor their classes to focus on writing, reading or speaking, depending on needs.
Free tea, coffee or soft drinks are provided from the stylish bar on the ground floor, and depending on size classes are taught in different parts of the school, including in the outside courtyard or at comfy chairs and tables dotted around this wonderful old mansion. Studying here feels like entering a grand private house from the days of old Shanghai, and it’s rather lovely.
