Chippy English is located in Nantong, a modern city in Jiangsu Province. It is a native English training brand in the city downtown. With a 1.5-hour drive to Shanghai, Nantong is called the Northern Gate of Shanghai City.
At the beginning of 2011, the school lessons were offered in a 20 square metre living room. Lois did it alone with 4-5 kids as a part time job. Due to the great teaching quality, many parents trusted her and sent their kids to her.
In 2015, Lois quit her job and set up her own English training school with the dream of helping more kids learn English efficiently. 5 years later, the school keeps getting more and more popular.
In Chong Chuan centre, there are about 260 learners and 17 staff members. There is a new centre developing in a different part of Nanjing. With the boom of the Chinese economy and implementation of the two-child policy, the English training industry has a bright future in our city.
