New Feature

ESLwatch NOW allows you to create a Rating without writing a review

What does this mean, you still have to register (still anonymous), find your school and you are able to rate your school from 1/5, You are then able to add your Experience by giving star ratings on:


5/10 Professionalism
5/10 Work location
5/10 Living situation
5/10 Pay & benefits
5/10 Support & facilities
5/10 Health & safety

 

ESLwatch has some more features in the pipeline so will let you know when launched.

If your school is not added to the site just add them, completely anonymous of course.

Forum Rules

General Posting Guidelines

Think first before posting, think of the the way you phase your question especially when asking for help. Here are some general guidelines.

 

Please use SEARCH first! Tab top of forum.

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It is easy to search – just click the “Search” tab at the top of the forum page.

 

Be DESCRIPTIVE and Do not use stupid topic names

Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects. They do not get attention and only annoy people).

Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :

I have a question can you help me?

Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

Here is a good example of a way to post a question

How can I explain to my child the reason they need to go to school?

Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as “if you are not going to help do not waste my time replying”.

 

Forum Rules

Do not cross post questions

Please refrain from posting the same question in several sections. There is normally one section which is most suitable in which to post your question.

 

Do not PM users asking for help

Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.
