My name is Jesse and I have been with Meten in Dongguan for about nine months. I have dreamed of coming to China for a long time and I consider myself very lucky to have found Meten. Meten gave me, along with around 19 other new recruits, two weeks of training in Suzhou. The training was very informative while still being fun and interesting and I was surrounded by likeminded individuals. Honestly, it felt like a college dorm experience all over again for two weeks. And I mean that in the absolute best possible way.
When training ended, I headed to my home center in Dongguan and got down to business. I was immediately made to feel like part of the family and I'm surprised to say that after nine months of hard work, I still feel that way. The office atmosphere is very friendly and the kindness and generosity of my colleagues never ceases to amaze me. More importantly, everyone is supportive and willing to help if you run into any trouble or just need some advice. And the students are wonderful. Whether I'm hosting a late-night debate class at our local bar or teaching tongue twisters to preteens, I always feel that what I am doing is important and rewarding.

Hi, I'm Lalin and I'm a computer specialist from England. I am thoroughly enjoying myself at Meten and I do believe moving to China and teaching here is the best decision I have ever made.
Since the moment I arrived, everyone has been very friendly and supportive which made the transition from England to China very easy for me. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and the staff and students have been able to expand my horizons with new experiences.
So come and have an adventure you will not forget for the rest of your life!
