Re: Teaching TEFL Abroad Without an Anglo-Saxon/American name?

But of course a John Smith would be preferred over an Istvan Izetbecovitz when the choice is to hire one out of the two. So, yes, th...

ACE/IDP in Cambodia

Good school, good people, great students. Not a bad salary for Cambodia. You get some $1600-2000+ a month if with extra hours. Get you a visa and medical insurance. What's the catch? Unpaid public holidays. Almost two months off. Unpaid. That makes your salary some $1400-1500 a month. Please be awar...

ICEAT in Saudi Arabia

This school has been known to not pay final settlement to some teachers as well as put blocks on their visas if they go and work for someone else. Some teachers got trapped in Saudi Arabia unable to leave. Very scary! Proceed with caution.
