The Great White Two Legged TEFL Sharks

Unread post by John V55 » 11 Jan 2019, 03:15

A funny thing happened to me recently, well not funny, but you know …

I received a job offer, good pay, material provided, just what they’re looking for. Didn’t want to see any paperwork and the meeting will be held in a coffee shop near the place of work. Hmmm, I googled and the reviews weren’t good, in fact from someone so well known in the TEFL industry, they were bloody awful!

I asked for the material and insisted I see the classroom facilities. Class sizes? Computer? Chalk board? Usual stuff … All of a sudden the offer of a meeting and employment were withdrawn.

The moral of this little story is that there are lots of sharks in Asia, the deadliest of whom are the two legged ones. Do your homework, check the promises and don’t become a victim of the great white two legged sharks. :) ... culumVitae

Sounds like a great warning. My guess is that was China?^^ But there are several other countries fit the bill.
