Why M.E.F.?:

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.

Since 1993, M.E.F. has stood for Making English Fun. We started in Japan and now run using our program inside Chinese kindergartens. Our positions are high energy and teachers must be interactive, energetic and have a genuine love for children, smiling and having fun in the classroom.  The program is designed to be easy for teachers to learn, repeat and use in the classroom and the system is one that allows for teachers to be able to work inside the kindergartens without work stress or drama.  Usually after a week of training teachers are able to comfortable use the material and teach the classes. Generally the children love the lessons, the kindergartens are proud of having our teachers at their schools and teachers are able to enjoy the whole China experience with ease.   First, our system addresses most of the common problems.  We strive to offer a very clear understanding of exactly what to expect before you start, to avoid surprises.   We try to separate the Chinese kindergartens from the teachers to avoid the problems most teachers have with cultural differences, misunderstandings and complications between schools and teachers.  We strive to remove the complications and make it so teachers can just teach and enjoy what they do. The kids usually love our teachers. It is not like teaching grammar or testing. Our teachers get to be the fun teachers that the kids love.
