World City Links showed the prospective students different types of provision, including traditional Boarding Schools, 6th Form Colleges and all through day schools.
The students greatly enjoyed the visits. Junyi “Emily” Xiang, aged 15 , commented ” I really enjoyed the way the English Teachers were so kind with their students and the English students we met were so friendly. I hope I can study here in the future” .
Leader of the group Mrs Rong said ” The way the English Schools greeted our students was lovely. We leave with such a strong impression of the care and commitment that the English teachers show to their students. It has been a real honour and pleasure to visit these schools, many thanks. I expect some of our students to return to the UK later on” .
