It is our newest city for M.E.F. teachers. What interests teachers most there is that it is definitely more of an authentic Chinese experience. The people are still very excited to see a foreign person and are very welcoming.
Yibin (population around 5 million)
Although we are still teaching kindergarten children in Yibin, the current location needs our teachers in a language school.
This means that usually the teachers do not have a 9 to 5/Monday to Friday type position.
The mountains, food (famous Sichuan spicy food), the attention you get there being a foreigner,
the cost of living.
It is not our typical kindergarten M.E.F. schedule.
It is a smaller group there. There are other teachers there but not a big group of expats (if that is something that you prefer).
This means that you will have a more authentic Chinese experience and have a lot more attention being a foreigner there (which is the highlight of being in China for many people).
