Why gamble with your career abroad when you can know for sure who you are really working for in China?
Yes the vast majority of schools in China are reputable and keep their promises but over a 100 of them have made life miserable for hundreds of foreign teachers. So we have consolidated the blacklists from five different TEFL/ESL forums and boards with our own into the largest China school blacklist on-line which you can view for free at:http://www.chinaforeignteachersunion.org/2012/12/china-foreign-teachers-union-posts-esl.html
We will also be publishing our annual whitelist in January and are still accepting recommendations at...whitelist@ChinaForeignTeachersUnion.org
At the above link you will also find a list of all the known fake and fraudulent agents (with their photos) who can also cause a lot of grief in a hurry for new teachers in China. And for anyone even thinking about teaching in China, we strongly advise you to read this recent article that appeared in a Beijing magazine just last month...http://www.cityweekend.com.cn/beijing/articles/blogs-beijing/expat-life/scam-alert-foreign-teacher-fraud/
Lastly we want to thank TEFL.net for helping us with our project to make China a safer and more stress-free place for our colleagues to work as we wish you all... HAPPY HOLIDAYS & A HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
