Since 2014, Storyland have been inspiring children from ages 3 to 15 to become fluent, passionate readers and writers. Every day we work hard to share our knowledge of literature, to show the importance of thinking deeply, and to impart the value of creativity.

We recruit excellent Students to share their experience of reading and studying abroad. In addition, through training and their own experience, they can help Chinese students on guided reading in the library to inspire independent readers and critical thinkers.  Our working day is from Monday to Friday,9:00am to 18:00pm,one hour lunch break. In the whole day,the students will guide the children reading in the library and they can attend class to listen and recording,and they also will do some interesting activities related to reading and creative project.

Whilst the ages range from 3-15, students will be divided up by school grade, and so language levels and activities will differ by class. Within the classes, there will be around 8 students per class, with support from Chinese teachers for translation if needed.
