Bad  Australia International Education Exchange Centre
Key Words:    
TitleAIEEC - Australia International Education Exchange Centre
Author: forgetai(at)hotmail.com
They will appear professional (if you catch them on the right day) and then slowly youwill learn what an incompetent, money grabbing bunch of lying no good scoundrels they are. They do not pay salaries easily..Each month is a fight. Then comes the deductions and the blaming..they will do anything to not pay you. They will not do anything to put right anything that is not right with your apartment. They are crooks basically. Avoid, avoid, or peril at their hands.

Bad  Australian International Edicational Exchange Centre (AIEEC)   Details
Key Words: Visa   
Title3 months and still no green card, and that¡äs not the half of it
Author: AM
Avoid AIEEC (Australian International Edicational Exchange Centre) like the plague. They took two months to get me an aprtment, have still not put a telephone in it after an extra six weeks, have still not processed my green card, have consistently lied and given their teachers an endless stream of disinformation, have constantly introduced arbitrary and stupid changes to scheduling and work hours without notice, and have generally deported themselves with a maximum of managerial ineptitude and a minimum of scruples and integrity.

TitleBritish Council
Author: PT <yourmum_my50p(at)hotmail.com>
The truth is you will be working for a pitance. Asked to work extra hours, sometimes without pay and at the end of your contract you won't even get a thank you for flying the George cross.

Key Words:    
TitleCANADIAN FOUNDATION for INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION
Author: harry johns
Please Note. This message is for teachers own safety and security if you are thinking about heading to China. Beware of an outfit called CANADIAN FOUNDATION for INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION.
They are total scammers.They will promise you a job and ask you to send all your credentials including your passport.Once they have got all they can duplicate,you will not hear from them again.the job position they advertised is alledgely in Nanning, Quangxi Province but in that particular province the foreign affairs and only the foreign affairs can do the hiring. This has been confirmed in writing. So beware of these Paul Adler and David Bain types.

TitleDELTER/TELFORT
Author: MARTIN WOLFF    Send Message to Author
There has been a great deal of negative treatment of this business on many forums, particularly Dave's ESL Caf¨¦. Since I do not play in Dave's sandbox, with all of those spoiled brats, I would like to have my say on Delter/Telfort here.

Bad  Delter International Business Institute China   Details
Key Words:    
TitleDELTER¡­DON'T GO
Author: Stephen Wallace <stephen_wallace102(at)yahoo.com>
Delter will e-mail you and say they have openings in Shanghai / Beijing. Then after you've bought your non-refundable airfare, you will receive an e-mail saying they have an immediate need in another city; the agreed upon city no longer has any vacancies.

Bad  Seder English Training School   Details
Key Words: Wages, Salary, Contract   
TitleSeder. The "Biggest" School in Dalian. Beware.
Author: Nik Edwards <Tesol_Teacher2002(at)Yahoo.co.uk>
They don't pay you ontime, even if its only 100rmb, and they expect you to "help" them with no pay. This school has so much money that is mis-directed towards the Managers rather than the students who generally are very nice.. They will make you sign a contract, but only use it for their purpose, and expect you to work everyday but maybe "only for a couple of hours".

My Experience
You are welcome to describe your experience in China, and share your thoughts and feelings on our website.
We always say, if something good happens you will tell one person; something bad happens you will tell ten people. Generally, people remember the negative things more than the positive things. We do not have responsibility to verify every detail. Actually, a good description does not mean that is really perfect; and a bad personal feeling does not mean every thing is horrible.
All articles are personal experience and viewpoint. People use different eyes to look at a thing so result will be difference. The important thing is we have different culture background. China is a beautiful country, and she also is a developing country. Compare to some developed countries we still have some problems especially in some small towns and countryside. But China still has more sparking.
