American TPR English School was established in 1992 and was the first English School in China to obtain ISO9001 certification. In its 26 years of development, TPR has established 19 branches and franchise schools in Zhuhai, Zhongshan, Dongguan and Chaozhou (all of them in the southern province of Guangdong) and one in the north, in Baoding, about an hour from Beijing. TPR has a well-structured management system and a team of dedicated and experienced staff and teachers. Many of our foreign teachers have been with us for 6-7 years, a few for 10-12 years and one for 17 years! Two Canadians who worked for 18 years retired recently.
American TPR English School has adopted a specific and proven effective teaching method called Total Physical Response, TPR for short. It was developed in the United States as a language teaching method. At American TPR English School all classrooms are fitted with interactive smart boards with educational software for kindergarten kids, primary school children and middle school teens. For the training of adults, the School focuses on ‘Situation English’ and ‘Business English’.
