Company Description

Giraffe Inspire was established in Taiwan in 1986. Currently Giraffe English boasts over 700 schools across Taiwan, and in 2009 Giraffe opened its first doors in Shanghai. Now, Giraffe has expanded to over 140 schools across Mainland China with Shanghai being the flagship school for Mainland China. The Shanghai flagship school continually strives to incorporate new educational and management concepts.

Giraffe English teaches students 3 to 12 years old, and given the age of our students, our mission extends beyond teaching English. We at Giraffe believe that we must not only be effective teachers of English, but work to help create an environment where students can work and learn collaboratively.
