Mortimer English Club takes the first step towards China with Franchise Partner in Beijing

May 2014 – 

The Mortimer Team has long been laying the ground work for an eventual expansion into the Chinese market. Now, that first step has been taken! The first franchise partnership for China was just concluded with Mrs. Hongying Ma, a native of China with many years of experience abroad and herself the mother of two children.

Mrs. Ma was won over by the extensive Mortimer concept on her visit to Mortimer  Headquarters in Herscheid, Germany. The system provides children and adults with a playful way to learn the English language.  She was also given an extensive look into the teaching and advertising materials as well as into the teacher training.

Mrs. Ma was delighted to meet the entire Mortimer Team that was pleased to answer her questions and soon a lively German-Chinese exchange developed, in English, of course. Both parties learned a lot about the different cultures and so Mrs. Ma flew back to her homeland with many new impressions and full of motivation to start her own business soon. 

A return visit is already being planned, since Mrs. Ma will soon complete a second training seminar in Mortimer Headquarters before she offers the first English courses in Beijing after summer holiday.
The whole Mortimer Team looks forward to the next visit and wishes Mrs. Ma all the best until then!
