Best Learning Teach English in China



About Best Learning…

If your goal is to explore a new country, save money, gain work experience with children, learn Mandarin, or simply push yourself outside of your comfort zone…  Regardless, we have an opportunity for you!

Best Learning Shenyang is a high-end, private after-school English training center located in Shenyang, China, aimed at teaching students 3-13 years of age.

Our school is a franchise of Best Learning; we share the same name but differ greatly from our namesake.  At BLS, students learn through songs, hands-on activities, and real-life experiences.

We boast small class sizes and provide ample teaching materials to ensure teachers’ success.

Best Learning Shenyang is a team. Beyond a team, we are a family. Outside of work, teachers from BLS hang out, travel, and experience nuances of China together.

We are not independents. When you first arrive to BLS, you think you are on your own. What you don’t know is the community that is waiting for you.

About Shenyang…

Shenyang is a large city in the heart of North Eastern China. Here in Shenyang you’ll be able to toss yourself into Chinese culture while still enjoying all the western conveniences you enjoy at home.

The weather here is very warm in the summer and quite cold in the winter but any clothing you need, can be acquired here in Shenyang at lower prices than in much of the west.

The cost of living here is low comparatively to other major Chinese cities.

Most foreign teachers in Shenyang spend between 2,000-4,000 RMB/month, allowing them to save roughly 9,000 RMB (1,300 USD) /month.

Furthermore, Shenyang’s location in Northeast China is perfect for quick weekend trips to Beijing, Harbin, Dalian, and the Great Wall of China!

In Shenyang you can find just about anything but here are a few of our favorite spots!

Beiling Park– A few subway stops away is one of Shenyang’s largest parks. It’s large enough that you can forget you’re in a big city for a few hours and can tour some historical monuments and tombs if that tickles your fancy.

For authentic Dongbei cuisine there are restaurants on every corner. “Delicious Dumpling” Is a great spot within walking distance of the school that we find ourselves going to for lunch quite frequently. Fresh dumplings and Guo Bao Rou!

Fat Dragon’s Ale House/Black sheep– These are two western bars/pubs that we find ourselves frequently to relax after work. Both feature western beer and food and are hot spots with most of the westerners who work in Shenyang.  It is guaranteed you’ll be in good company!

Qipan– Nearby Qipan Mountain is a great space for hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. A group of us tends to make the trip to the mountain at least once every season. Whether you love the snowy white powder or just experiencing the great outdoors Shenyang can deliver on its doorstep!

The Culture…

Best learning Shenyang has built a friendly relaxed culture. You’ll have all the support you could need but also the autonomy to build the class the way you want to. We encourage creativity here and look forward to new ideas.

While in class, expect to have a lot of fun with a great group of kids. While in the office expect a laid back atmosphere that rewards hard work and where everyone is willing to lend a hand. Outside of work we are a big family.

Whether it’s after work, on holiday or on the weekend we’re constantly exploring, engaging, and eating our way around China. We all look forward to meeting you!
