Re: RACE DISCRIMINATION FOR TEACHING JOBS IN ASIA

Fantastic - thanks for the response. As a teacher yourself, would you say that it is what you expected? All this talk of a free fully furnished apartment, and payment of flights does seem very attractive. PLUS the fact that you are doing something new, fun, and exciting - in a new country! This does...
