Colleagues Need YOUR Advice

As International educators, we are ALL looking for schools that meet &/or exceed our expectations. As you know, recruiting season is year round & YOUR School Review can greatly benefit colleagues in the process of researching schools for a potential upcoming career move. Keeping Each Other Informed is what ESLwatch is all about!


If you had an outstanding experience at your last school, spread the word! Or, on the flip side, remember: You know you promised yourself you would write a School Review once safely away from that previous, not-so-good Institution. Now is the time to keep that promise!


Or, have you just getting settled into a new institution? Why not share your first impressions on the location, the administration and your enviroment? Your colleagues will appreciate the insight!

None of us can afford to leave our careers to chance. Share your experience, and, as always, your anonymity is guaranteed!

Blacklisted: Dezhou University( college) Is HELL!I am a qualified ESL teacher with 9 years teaching experience who has been working abroad in three countries for more than three years.
Overall I had a good experience abroad.

Recently I have had the bad luck to work at Dezhou University where I had a negative exerience, met evil people who abuse their foreign teachers, do not respect the contract and even steal your passport in order to make you leave the school and the country.THEY DID NOT PAY ME AND STOLE MY PASSPORT!

Especially one clerk, her name is Shelley , Chinese name LIU JIA. She is the most evil of all, asks her Chinese colleagues to lie the foreign teacher, to abuse them .
Before coming here I have read negative reviews about this school but I just did not give them attention. After having my passport stolen and being treated real bad I want to warn all the possible victims of this evil place.

PLEASE DO NOT GO TO DEZHOU UNIVERSITY! Stay away from a cold place and evil people! STAY AWAY FROM SHELLEY, LIU JIA and her devilish colleagues! Stay away from the Hell in China.

Camarade ESL teacher, please save yourself!!

This school sucks. It's old, dirty, I refused to work in classrooms with rats. The administration is a joke, and leaders working on their PhDs in the States often hire teachers on the basis of being able to help with their thesis. The students are anywhere from great to poor. Accommodations are small and uncomfortable. This school cheats the teachers and this will usually happen at the end of the contract, just before a major holiday and your visa is about to expire. These people are gangsters.

Disgruntled European teacher? No! I haven't been to Dezhou University myself. I can only speak of my own experiences, and they are somewhat similar to that of the OP.
You must realise this is China, and anything that may apply today could turn out to be the opposite tomorrow. There is so much incompetence, corruption, pretence, cheat and deception around that can male your life like hell in China.
You do not seem to be aware of this, and you do not seem to know what teaching in China is like. Otherwise, you wouldn't make statements like this!
