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!

Thank you to whoever posted the above comment.

However, I find this school to be a fair employer. It is not perfect (what business is?), but it is nowhere near as bad as this person is suggesting. As for the schools in the city, I think this is one of the better ones...

BUT - don't believe everything you read on these forums, including this post. I don't know exactly what the person above is referring to, but it seems they have a bee in their bonnet - maybe there is an element of fact in what they claim, I don't know. I can only tell you that my experience has been very different. As far as black-listing Dell English School, I have to disagree. I would definitely put it on the white-list.

So, please - make up your own minds :-)

Rant over :P

Admin Team - (mr-tippler you posted the same thing a number of times and system deleted your post here is the original)

Skywalker you must be more stupid than I thought you were! Maybe not, you might be getting paid to reply to this post. I have heard you complaining just as much as the other teachers at the school. But maybe as I have always suspected you are cutting yourself a deal with the bosses.
You have to admit it’s a school for losers, people like yourself with no education, at home you would be flipping burgers. The salary is the lowest in the city and the teaching hours are the highest, the worst accommodation in the city for teachers. Teaching at high schools in big classes where the kids don’t want to learn. And you think its one of the best schools in the city? Maybe ok for teachers with no education or teaching methods who don't want to flip burgers.

I haven't worked for this school, but I do live in the same city as this school. I would have to agree with Skywalker. Not all businesses are perfect and this sounds nothing like what all the other teachers say about the school. Disgruntled employees who got canned or asked to leave because of their inability to teach or work ethic are normally the ones that post bad reviews about any school. Maybe the first person to post had a bad experience but all the other foreigners that I have met from there all enjoy working there. It sucks that the first person had a bad experience but I'm sure that he/she isn't as innocent. There are always 2 sides. It's unfair to attack a school and then attack someone that talks highly about the school. Let everyone say their peace. I'm sure the last person to post hasn't worked there and who knows, maybe he is the first one to post on here as well. There is a known troll in this city posting all over the forums about this school. Jealousy and spite is his only motive. He never worked for them. Like they say, beware of what trollers write on the internet. 9/10 it isn't true. This school should be taken off the black list. I know for a fact that this school has fired 2 people had one quit over the past 4 years. Most schools have a higher turn around rate then that. Another school here has had 15 or more new teachers every 6 months. This has been going on for the past 7 years. I hope this helps other potential teachers that come to this city.

I have worked in this school for a while, it turned out to be a disaster, the puppet boss Dell has no power at all, the Chinese boss Sam never honors his words, he will use all kinds of excuses for not paying you.He always send his men to spy on you....or to threaten you...If I didnot call the embassy, I couldn't have taken my passport back.It is a hell school, stay away!
