Large Multi-Language Learning Platform
Hujiang is one of the largest E-learning language platforms in China. It covers multiple languages (English, European languages, Japanese, Korea) for all student ages, adults, exam prep, college-level students, and children. Hujiang has a strong focus in exam prep especially, whether it’s college entry exam, accounting/finance/business or career-oriented exams for students preparing to go study abroad.
