What is Qkids? How does it work?

Hello teachers!

Welcome to our enjoyably amicable blog! Koby is here to help you understand who we are and what we do a little better~

What is Qkids? Qkids is an international company that connects amazing, inquisitive children from China to energetic American & Canadian teachers. Our goal is to integrate two cultures for the sake of ESL (English Second Language) education while maintaining a fun, playful atmosphere. Considering how fast the world of technology is modernizing old trends, it is easy to see how ESL platforms can take off! When one of our students needs help learning English, there is online help only a click away -- That's us 😉!

How does it work? In China, learning English is a part of the school curriculum. It is natural that some adults would like to seek additional English teaching services for their children. We provide teachers a platform via our software to teach and enhance our students' English capabilities.  We offer not only the software but also…

Holidays and Themes - Wow, So Many Holidays!

Holidays and Themes - Wow, So Many Holidays!

Hello, teachers!

Wow, the holidays are here 🎄! Looking around and seeing all the Christmas lights, fireworks and snowmen is a remarkable experience. Although cultures around the world may differ, holidays are abundant in every single one. We wanted to share some of our experiences, and indulge in yours, too!


To begin, you may have noticed that classes may have a more festive take:

This is our new approach at introducing holiday teaching within our classes! We can include lots of fun materials here to help the students understand the translations and culture behind holidays better. It is quite new, but something we hope to improve on. For Halloween, we introduced an interesting Jack-o'-lantern introduction screen, and for Thanksgiving, we made a thank you video to show a little more about the Qkids family and us. We wanted to take it even further for Christmas and future holidays!

For our Christmas themed classes, we featured a radical…

Scheduling & The Holidays

 Holidays and You

Dear Teachers,

As holidays approach, we understand that you may desire more time with your families. We fully support your decision and encourage you to enjoy yourself; however, we humbly request that you alert us via email weeks before your departure. This will allow us ample time to manage to schedule and assign standby teachers for a busy holiday cycle!


Since many teachers are requesting time off around the same time period, it is imperative that we maintain as accurate a schedule as possible for teachers both requesting time off and working the holidays.

Remember, if you are taking a hiatus from work for the upcoming week or longer, please send an email to classcoordination@qkids.cn.

For the current week, please direct your concerns to your WeChat team & the service desk in your Qkids software.

We appreciate your help and wish you a fantastic holiday!
