English Education for Rural Children in China


Millions of rural children in China are enrolled in schools where they lack English teachers. We plan to set-up and run an English teaching program in 5 rural schools, providing weekly English lessons through the internet to more than 400 disadvantaged children. Lessons will be delivered by trained volunteers based all over the world. We have more than twelve years' experience of training and supporting volunteers to teach English in China.

English is one of the three core subjects in the Chinese curriculum and one of the areas on which children are tested and compared throughout their school and work life. The lack of qualified English teachers in rural schools significantly contribute to rural children's low rate of high school or vocational school enrollment, which is less than 40%. This project supports the English education of 400 rural children in China.


This project provides weekly English lessons to disadvantaged elementary school aged children. Lessons will be taught by trained volunteers through the internet. In addition of attending a mandatory training, volunteers will receive online resources (e.g. flashcards, teaching tools and lesson plans) and support from our professional trainers. Site visits will also be done to set-up the project, test the equipment and train the local teachers who will assist the main teacher during the lessons.

Long-Term Impact

The project provides weekly English lessons for a year to disadvantaged children in rural China to help them gain confidence in English and pass their key examinations, which will optimize their access to higher education (i.e., high school and university) and work opportunities in the future.
