We know what it is like being a new teacher in a new country.
The program was created mainly by Canadians (we had some help from Americans and Aussies). We have spent many years making improvements and are always proud to offer the best! We also try hard to make the cultural differences as easy as possible.
Unlike most programs you find in China, our teachers are generally happy with their schedules and there are no teachers working over 30 hours a week.
We have small groups of teachers in a number of cities, so we are able to care well for the teachers and really make sure they are comfortable. Everything from helping with the visa, to airport pickup, hotel, setting up bank accounts, city tours, food tours, full training step-by-step until the teacher feels they are ready on their own, onsite training, continued training and full support system, help with find and setting up apartments, taking transportation, getting comfortable on the job and experiencing China.
Use a proven system for high energy, fun lessons for children age 4 to 6. Most of the curriculum is ready for you and it keeps growing. Teachers are generally really happy with the curriculum and resource support.
The best training support! Before any new teacher agrees to join our team, we connect them with current teachers so that they can understand the true experience and make sure they are 100% on taking this safe journey. As we grow, we offer chances for teachers to change locations and experience different areas of China, Japan and the world.
ESL in China is the largest in the world. Join M.E.F.!
Since 1993, M.E.F. has stood for Making English Fun. We believe in a WIN-WIN-WIN situation with the teachers definitely getting one of those Wins! We started in Japan in 1993 and now have expanded the program inside China. Our longest teacher has been with us for 12+ years.
