Learning is a lifelong process. Each of our education programs links seamlessly with the next, allowing a continuous learning experience that progresses logically while building on and reinforcing prior knowledge.
With more than 30 years of experience, we have refined our selection and training process to put only the very best teachers in our classrooms. At HESS, there is a symbiotic relationship between teaching and curriculum development. The people who write our materials also teach students and train other teachers with them. Being both an education and publishing company ensures that our teachers use the best methods to teach the most effective materials. We also recognize the inseparable relationship between reading and education, and through our bookstores, we support our students, parents, and the public at large with our education philosophy beyond the classroom.
Our programs include all-English and bilingual preschools, two streams of elementary school (one each for those who have and haven’t learned English in preschool), junior high school, an excellent e-learning platform, adult and corporate education programs, overseas study tours, and services supporting the arrangement of long-term overseas study placements.
In all of these programs, our main field of excellence remains English language education. However, we teach more than just English. In our preschools, children learn a wide variety of skills and knowledge, thoroughly preparing them for public school. In our elementary and junior high schools, we also support our students with courses in other subjects such as Chinese, math, and science, helping them to become well-rounded and successful students. In addition to the excellent business and conversational English courses we offer to adults, there is also the opportunity to learn French and Japanese at this level.
Reading goes hand-in-hand with education. As a rapidly expanding education company, it was a natural development for HESS to open its first bookstore in 1990. Today, we operate HESS Bookstores nationwide, and the number of locations is growing along with the rest of HESS International Educational Group. In our endeavor to provide the most complete service to our customers, it is our goal to open bookstores in conjunction with all new language schools.
Established in 1987, HESS Publishing Company produces a variety of educational materials for Taiwanese public schools and private educational institutions in addition to our own in-house curricula. To date, HESS Publishing Company has published more than 1,000 titles, and as a result, students use more than 800,000 copies of our award-winning teaching and learning materials every year.
