Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- up2eleven 1 September 2014
I do not have any kind of college degree, however, I will be getting a TEFL certificate. When I look online about places where I can teach without a degree, China always comes up as the best place. ...
Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- Ben 7 September 2014
The official Chinese regulations state that you must have a degree to come here to teach. Most institutions - definitely all the better quality ones - will hold you to that. The better ones also ...
Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- Beth 18 September 2014
Most of all, I would say this. Think carefully about why you're coming to China to teach. If it's because you're genuinely interested in teaching, want to experience Chinese culture, want ...
Foreign misfits in ESL -- Turnoi 16 September 2014
That's only too true, But there are clear reasons for it, and it's not only those misfits that you should blame: 1. Chinese employers/visa issuing bodies are unwilling or unable to check an ...
Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Concerned Teacher 17 September 2014
They only want some white faces for shown in their private, disgusting language mills, the rest doesn't matter. True, for in chinese eyes, white=western. It is the reason why white teachers, ...
Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Beth 18 September 2014
I agree about the racism. During my last 6 months at EFDL, they hired a British girl.of Sri Lankan descent. She was qualified, loved teaching and wanted to teach for a year in China before moving to ...
Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Turnoi 18 September 2014
This variant of racism exists because white faces sell better in China - according to the views of those clowns running that particular infamous EF franchise branch. People of "non-white" descent are ...
Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Beth 19 September 2014
This variant of racism exists because white faces sell better in China -according to the views of those clowns running that particular infamous EF franchise branch. Oh change the record, it's ...
Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Turnoi 19 September 2014
EF is one of the outstanding examples in terms of the racism we are talking about. And it's not only because of the parents. It's also because of the crappy owners, The fact that non-whites ...
Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Beth 20 September 2014

Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Concerned+Teacher 20 September 2014
The Chinese guys who were quite jealous and would not dare making parties themselves then had street fights with these Africans, and some of their racism also comes from such events in more recent ...
Re: Foreign misfits in ESL -- Turnoi 21 September 2014
I have experienced myself the same in the 1970s when I was there as a student to polish up my Chinese. The fact that high-heel lady Beth chose to ignore all this attests to her narrow-mindedness and ...
Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- Silverboy 7 September 2014
You need a degree to get the good university jobs, otherwise without a degree you need at least two years teaching experience, some universities want five, but obviously that's only an option for ...
Re: Need clarification regarding teaching requirements. -- Dr. Turnoi Turjakuunnen 2 September 2014
Well, the "real story" is this: 1. Until some time ago, China has been a place accepting almost everybody for ESL teaching positions - from the uneducated former sausage vendor up to highly qualified ...

CELTA teacher training -- Edward/CELTA teacher training 26 July 2014
I would like feedback on the most reputable providers of the 4-week CELTA course. There are tons on the Internet and no way to assess which ones are good. I understand the CELTA curriculum is the ...
Re: CELTA teacher training -- cunning linguist 31 July 2014
You might consider a university based CELTA course. Some universities, at least in the UK, run courses under the control of their Modern Languages department so you can be assured that your ...
Re: CELTA teacher training -- Dr. Turnoi Turjakuunnen 29 July 2014
There are a number of parameters to assess these providers: 1. Ask them for the qualification of the instructors - degree or non-degree holders? In the latter case, move on. 2. There have been ...

Re: Adult schools in Haikou? -- Turnoi, the Only One and Real Turnoi 17 June 2014
You should tell the truth of who you are - an agency that sells out foreign teachers to students and deduct each month substantial amounts from the teacher's salary! My urgent advice to Scooty is ...
Re: Adult schools in Haikou? -- Turnoi, the Only One and Real Turnoi 13 June 2014
Why don't you look around public schools like colleges and unis? There you will find most likely the kind of adult students you want. I agree, teaching at these kid schools is a terrible thing to ...
Re: Adult schools in Haikou? -- Concerned Teacher 13 June 2014
I agree, teaching at these kid schools is a terrible thing to do. True, but I tend to find these kind of jobs suit younger western female teachers well. Or playful young at heart western male ...
Re: Adult schools in Haikou? -- Turnoi, the Only One and Real Turnoi 15 June 2014
Indeed, if you are the right person with a mentality to do that. I am a university professor and find it's not my cup of tea to sing songs "Old Mac Donald had a farm" or play the monkey in ESL ...
Re: Adult schools in Haikou? -- Scotty 4 July 2014
Well I appreciate the advice and all, but universities pay a lot less and I've had good experiences with Training centers even a couple of the ones here where people were telling horror stories. ...
Re: Adult schools in Haikou? -- Nicki 7 July 2014
Unfortunately all of the training schools in Haikou serve both adults and kids, with kids being the bulk of their business. So none of them will be able to guarantee no kids classes. I've worked ...

Quality of cheap CELTAs -- David Smith 1 June 2014
I am thinking about doing CELTA this summer and after many hours searching for a cheap, good course, I think I found one. My question to the forum is whether or not the price of the course has an ...
Re: Quality of cheap CELTAs -- Turnoi, the Only One and Real Turnoi 1 June 2014
It may depend on the individual expenses a provider has. For example, rent for the provider in Vienna is certainly more expensive than in Ceske Budjejovice (a Czech city not far from the Austrian ...

Re: Dave's ESL Cafe- Never Again! -- Turnoi, the Only One and Real Turnoi 26 May 2014
You will not be surprised to read that it was the same on this board several years ago with the bullies who used to dominate this board. Whether they were the same like those posting on Dave's is ...
Re: Dave's ESL Cafe- Never Again! -- Nova 24 May 2014

Re: Dave's ESL Cafe- Never Again! -- Emily 27 May 2014
