About Us -
KNES is a private language institution that offers English-classes to children aged 3 to 12. All programs are conducted in English and feature a well-structured curriculum.
We pride ourselves in providing a professional and supportive work environment. We are currently home to more than 20 full-time English-speaking teachers from all over the world. This number will only increase as the school continues to expand.
We have branches spread throughout Hsinchu County. We are primarily based in Zhudong Township and Zhubei City. Both locations are surrounded by beautiful mountains, yet are within easy reach of major cities (e.g. Zhubei and Hsinchu City). Taipei, the capital and Taiwan’s largest city, is only 30 minutes away by High Speed Rail, or 90 minutes by bus.
Taiwan is a very friendly country with a rich history and culture. Taiwan also has a well-developed public transit system, meaning it’s very easy and convenient to get around.
