At New Oriental, our mission is to inspire Chinese students of all ages to improve their lives and expand their horizons through a lifelong commitment to learning.
What They Do
New Oriental has become the most recognized brand in Chinese private education. Based on founder Michael Yu's groundbreaking vision, our innovative and inspirational instruction combines humorous, interactive teaching techniques with traditional Chinese educational values. Since our founding in 1993, New Oriental has had over 44.8 million student enrollments, including approximately 8.4 million enrollments in fiscal year 2019. As of May 31, 2019, we had a network of 95 schools, 1,233* learning centers, 15 bookstores and access to a nationwide network of online and offline bookstores through 160 third-party distributors and over 33,900 teachers in 83 cities.
New Oriental provides its valued teachers with all the tools to shine and excel as a wonderful English teacher, from in depth training to detailed materials. Our courses utilize a range of presentation, interactive whiteboard, pad and app technology, so that the best experience can be given to both the teacher and the students in the classroom. With our small classes of maximum 12-16 students, the teacher really has the opportunity to connect with and get to know their students well. At New Oriental, the teacher’s time is valued. Teachers are provided with fully structured materials to use in their classes, allowing them to simply focus on their teaching.
In the last decade or so Haidian has become Beijing's educational and technological center, although there's still a lot of Old Beijing left here, including the wonderful Summer Palace, with its lakes and ancient pavilions. The major IT players, including Microsoft, Siemens, NEC, and Sun, all have offices in this area, and in the Wudaokou and Zhongguancun neighborhoods you’ll find kids geeking out over the latest gadgets at electronics superstores, studying in one of the many cafés, or blowing off steam at some of the area's dance clubs. The campuses of China’s most elite educational institutions, Peking University and Tsinghua, are large by Chinese standards and provide a tranquil respite from the busy surrounding area, with wide lawns and Chinese gardens complete with scenic bridges and pagodas. A large number of foreign students attend Chinese universities, with South Koreans the most numerous, so restaurants and shops catering to their needs are easy to find, especially around Wudaokou station.
