In this course, students will engage in guided reading of a different novel every session with an Englist instructor, after which they will be challenged to think critically and participate in analytical discourse about the content of the text.

Teaching students to think critically is one of the cornerstones of Englist’s teaching philosophy. Students are not only encouraged, but expected to speak up and voice their opinions in this class. Not only does this improve their overall English communication skills, but also teaches them to become stronger independent thinkers.

Session 1:

7/1, 7/3, 7/8, 7/10


The novel follows the stories of three refugee children in three different geographic locations and points in time. Each child experiences traumatic losses and personal victories as they struggle to escape the political instability of their homelands. Josef Landau is fleeing Nazi Germany in 1939.

Session 2:

7/15, 7/17, 7/22, 7/24

Moon Over Manifest

Set in 1936, this memorable coming-of-age story follows 12-year-old Abilene Tucker’s unusual summer in her father’s hometown of Manifest, Kans., while he’s away on a railroad job. Having had an itinerant upbringing, Abilene is eager to connect to her father’s childhood, a goal that proves difficult.

Session 3:

7/29, 7/31, 8/5, 8/7

This uplifting story brings Korean folklore to life as a girl goes on a quest to unlock the power of stories and save her grandmother.

Through lively discussions, collaborative analysis, and multimedia presentations, students gain a nuanced understanding of the multifaceted nature of current events.

Public Speaking is designed to equip students with the essential skills and confidence necessary for effective communication.

Throughout the course, students will engage in a series of activities aimed at honing their public speaking abilities. They will begin by selecting presentation topics of personal interest, allowing them to delve into subjects they are passionate about. Subsequently, students will craft well-structured speeches, learning techniques to capture and maintain audience attention while effectively conveying their message. Moreover, they will analyze and observe proficient public speakers, from which they were gain valuable insights and strategies to enhance their own speaking techniques.

Finally, students will finish the course by creating dynamic presentations that showcase abilities.

Our classes are all-English, all the time.

Native English-speaking teachers

Our classes are all immersive English-learning environments because our teachers are native English speakers. This allows students to improve their language skills more fluidly and colloquially.

Small class sizes

Through group discourse and interaction with their classmates, students are encouraged to speak up and voice their thoughts and opinions. This cultivates their logical thinking and social skills.

Fostering critical thinking skills

Students are encouraged to express their ideas through question-and-answer sessions and think critically about their arguments. This helps them become independent thinkers and prepares students for more advanced levels of writing.

Our students come from schools all over Taipei City and beyond, including Fuhsing, Kuei Shan, TAS, TES, Kang Chiao, Renai, and more.

Many of our students’ English academic writing abilities improve so much after joining our program that they see significant improvement at school as well.

Our Teachers

Englist prides itself in the quality of our curriculum and teachers. All of our instructors are enthusiastic teachers and experienced educators.


Teachers speak English at a native level

With fluent English speakers leading the class, students learn pronunciation and grammar in a much more natural way. This immersive English learning environment allows students to hear the language in the way it would normally be spoken among native English speakers.


Livelier and more interactive classrooms

All of Englist’s teachers grew up in Western education systems and instruct students in a similar fashion. We aim to inspire engagement and independent thinking in our students, a departure from the rigid and rote memorization techniques common among many other after school programs in Taiwan. 


Rich teaching experience in Taiwan

Our teachers have all had years of experience teaching in Taiwan in various schools and institutes, instructing students of all ages from elementary through high school.
