SPA provides many English programs catering to the middle-class Chinese families.  5-Year Pacican English Program (Pacican) and General Oral English Program (GO) are two of them.  There are more than 80 schools currently participating in the aforesaid programs.  About 10,000 primary-school students register in the Pacican English Program alone every semester.  Both programs combine the western methods of teaching and learning English that immerses students in a natural and fun environment with the Chinese ways of monitoring and evaluation.  Such innovation has been well accepted by Chinese schools and students.
