I can confirm after recently leaving this hell hole institution, that absolutely nothing has changed. At all. The teacher turnover is absolutely ridiculous, yet they wonder why. I can offer a few reasons:

1. When you work for Academia Linguistica Internacional, you are not a person. You are a working robot. Six hours of back to back lessons without a break? What are you complaining about?? You're there to work!!

2. Working from 07:30 - 22:00 with only a twenty minute lunch break? Sounds harsh, no? Imagine doing it EVERY DAY.

3. Everything is your fault. Secretary not done your photocopies? They didn't tell you about a lesson? Told you the name of the wrong student? Well, you should have checked. If you don't ask if each specific student has cancelled, you'll never know. Do your job! (as well as the admin and secretary's).

4. You have to beg for your paycheck. Now, do you require money to live? Then maybe think twice before accepting an hour from this 'school'. In the civilized world, when you work for a living, you expect some sort of compensation in the form as cash? Correct? NOT HERE. 'I no finish accounts. Tonight. I no finish accounts. Tomorrow. I don't know when finish accounts. I give you advance.' How about you give me the money that I've earned??? At the start of the month and not the 20th???

5. Hostility is more common here than language lessons. Certain members of staff are what can only be described as hideous, and have been known to bully both students and other teachers. Do admin do anything about it? 'Just ignore it', they are told. These members of staff will lord it over you, as they are 'part of the furniture'. Disgusting, vile furniture that needs to be thrown out. A member of the admin staff has an issue with you? How will this be dealt with, you ask? A one on one meeting? A formal warning? HA! No, the admin staff will slate you to every single other member of staff until it gets back to you. Then it starts to make sense why he slammed a door in your face. Or why she was screaming at you for no reason.

So, in conclusion, if you value a healthy and communicative work environment, or have any self worth at all, do not get the last minute flight to find yourself in a grotty apartment with this as your reality.
