What is Mums’ English Circle?
We are a group of mothers from around the world
We have online meetings Tuesday – Friday, via Zoom. Chat about topics like our children, careers, women’s issues, food, festivals and more.
You can choose to attend five meetings a week or one, stay for 10 minutes or 40 minutes! You can chat with other mums around the world, ask them questions, and get to know each other. All the mums are very supportive so you’ll always enjoy the meetings.
What are lessons like?
Lessons are fun and relaxed! They are all about the conversations. You can stay for the whole lesson or come and go as you need to. We understand if you have young children that you might come and go sometimes. Lessons are 30-60 minutes long.
All lessons are on Zoom, so you can join on your mobile phone or desktop computer.
You can watch a clip from a lesson here

Tuesday 0900 (Italian time, with teacher Maria)
Wednesdays 1030 (Japan time)
Thursdays 1100 (Japan time)
Fridays 1600 (Japan time)
How much is it?
It’s $25 USD per month, or $250 USD a year.
Is this right for me?
If you are a mum who is about B1 intermediate level or higher in English this is for you
(that’s about TOEIC 400, Cambridge Preliminary (PET), BEC Preliminary, BULATS score 40-59, CLB/CELPIP 5, CAEL 50, IELTS level 4, TOEFL score 57-86. TOEFL iBT 42 or higher). Mums’ English Circle is right for you.
If you’re a mum who used to be this level but you haven’t studied for a long time, it’s still ok. Once you start exercising your English muscles they will quickly get back into shape.
If you’re a mum who is ready to spend some time studying English everyday (or most days) MEC is for you!
Do I have to be an English teacher to join?
No! A lot of our members are English teachers, or used to be, but any mother is welcome to join us.
I have another question!
If you have any other questions, or just want to say hello email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi! I’m Abbie. I’m British and I live in Japan with my husband and two daughters.
I’ve been teaching English for over 12 years, in the UK, Japan and online.
I know how hard it is to have time for language learning while you’re trying to raise a family, look after the house and work all at the same time!
That’s why I came up with the idea for Mums’ English Circle. This is a safe and friendly place where you can chat in English. English conversations for teachers are essential to keep your skill level up and confidence high.
If you’re an English teacher you might be feeling as if you should know all the English already, but that’s not true. MEC is a place to practice, to keep your English level up, and also make mistakes and ask questions in a safe and friendly place.
I hope to see you soon!
