How important is English education in China? Imagine that you start learning English as a second language ever since you were in kindergarten, all the way till University. It is one of the most important subjects for the National College Entrance Examination (i.e., Gaokao), the ONE exam that “can set the course of a student’s life in China”.
In 2018, the number of Chinese students studying abroad reached 662,100. According to Statista, the market for private English education across China in 2017 was estimated at around 41.5 billion USD and projected to grow to 75 billion USD by 2022. Just imagine that.
My take on this? Chinese people really desire to learn more about this world and want to be an active part of it. 🤗For anyone who aspires to work and live there, you are in for a good ride.
