Shane English Nanyang
Shane English School Nanyang (SESN) is part of Shane English Schools which was established in 1977 by Founder Shane Lipscombe.
SESN places great emphasis on providing a good quality, good value, caring service to its students and as a result a high proportion of these students join through word of mouth recommendations and/or as a result of observing or participating in classes on a trial or demonstration basis.
Shane English Schools Nanyang (SESN) is located in the centre of Nanyang City. It is equipped with course books and classroom materials and has 5 classrooms. On most days teachers will be working alongside teaching colleagues, although there may be some days when they are the only teacher at the centre. There are Chinese School Manager and receptionists available to deal with student enquiries and the day-to-day administration of the centre. Outside of the classrooms, teachers are expected to fulfil tasks asked of them by the school staff (e.g. interviewing prospective students, helping to place a new student in a suitable class.
Children are grouped according to age (and level):
Students ages are between 3 and 14 years old.
The maximum class size in SESN for a children’s class is 10 students and is 10 students for an adult group. However, class sizes are sometimes lower (an average of 5 for adults and 8 for children’s classes) and teachers may be required to teach small groups and 1:1 private class as and when the need arises.
A standard group lesson is 90mins for children and 90mins for adults in length. Students generally come to class once a week though some students opt to take private one-to-one lessons of varied frequency and duration, sometimes in addition to their group lesson. Private lessons are typically 60 minutes in length, but in some special cases can be longer.
Courses are designed around a core of set texts and supplementary materials, cross-referenced to in-house syllabuses and pacing schedules. Teachers are also encouraged to add their own extra resources and ideas. The texts used for adult courses are predominantly in-house produced British English texts (known as the Shane Adult Course). Children’s courses at SESN almost exclusively use its own course materials, specially produced by Saxoncourt ELT so as to meet our students’ needs more directly.
Teachers will additionally be given plenty of support and guidance as well as thorough training in all aspects of their lessons by their Academic Manager.
Apart from the regular classes, we also have Shane Kitchens and Clubs. It’s usually 1 hour and we teach the students different topics, like pizza clubs, sandwiches, cupcakes, decorating kites, decoration pencil boxes, etc. It’s a fun environment, where the students can learn more language and use the language that they have already learned.
We are a small fun, hardworking and loving team. We consist of 9 teachers. We are 4 Foreign teachers and five Chinese teachers.
Our school Manager is Lily and our Senior teacher is Mardi.
Our team is growing and we would love to have you as part of our team.

Apart from regular classes we also have training, workshops, outings and get-togethers.
We also have a marketing team, Mackoo (Robot/Lego classes) and Eloquence classes.
