TitleAvoid Columbia College/Kindergarten in Changchun
Author: Ex employee
1. THERE IS NO CURRICULUM! The staff have to create all their own lesson plans, flash cards etc.
2. The boss of the kindergarten constantly undermines staff, she seems to believe the teaching staff are completely incompetent (they are not).
5. 1 PC is provided but is used by all the Chinese and foreign staff.
7. The advert on the internet says Chinese classes can be provided ¨C rubbish!

TitleEF Changchun
Author: cj750 & Voldermort
I have worked for them PT and had no problems¡­but friends of mind have had less than good things to say on a full time basis¡­..I would say on a whole the EF doesn¡¯t pay enough to warrant the work in a language mill.

Bad  Excel-World English Kindergarten   Details
Key Words:  Jilin  Changchun
TitleExcel-World English Kindergarten
Author: Sharon Couzens <SharonCouzens(at)yahoo.com>
Excel is run by Singapore management. So their method of teaching is a mix between the Chinese and American. It's a Christian kindergarten, as much as can be allowed in China.

TitleLOOK OUT FOR TIAN SHUO IN JILIN PROVINCE
Author: adella <the_only_cindarella(at)hotmail.com>
The second problem that came up was every month with the salary package to begin with on the internet I was told that I would be getting 4500 then when I arrived I got 4000 only 500 rmb but when I tried to bring it up with them they denied all knowledge. The main problem with the contract before I arrived and after I arrived is that another girl had been speaking to me online who was living in another town and was notreally part of the company so any promises that she told us were complete lies.

Bad  Tianshuo   Details
Key Words: Accomodation, Workload Jilin  Changchun
TitleDo your research before you sign with Tianshuo
Author: Matt Tupy <mtupy(at)iwon.com>
My apartment has several features; the smell of sewer gasses year round, mosquitos and ants in the summer, freezing cold in the winter and a broken window in my bedroom just to name a few. I have complained about the broken window several times. The company has made 6 promises to fix it but have not successfully done so.
They tried to get out of paying overtime, arguing that although my contract says anything over 22 hours per week is overtime, it really means anything over 88 hours per month is overtime.

Bad  Tianshuo
Key Words:  Jilin  Changchun
TitleBeware of Tianshuo of Changchun in Jilin Province
Author: Gordon Banks <banks_gordon(at)yahoo.com>
All the teachers are hired by a women named Teresa, but she does not exist. You are shown several pictures of beautiful apartments, promised reimbursements, and salaries that aren¡¯t lived up to. They just lie to get you there! Moreover, you¡¯re treated like a slave while under their control. They will take your passport and not let you leave and sometimes harass you about your activities in your personal life.

Bad  Tianshuo, Tianyuan, Baidawei, Simon's language school
Key Words:  Jilin  Changchun
TitleBeware some of the schools in Changchun
Author: live the Dentist
Changchun has some really bad schools - (they are famous across China for being so bad - and have been taken to court in Canada). Simon's language school is also a disgrace - they are known to steal passports. The lowest of the low is Tianshuo - a corrupt and evil little recruiting agency. Tianyuan is not evil - just incompetant. Don't believe the 7 weeks holiday at Baidawei either - teachers have to teach double hours to earn this. It's a good school otherwise but the pay is low.

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.
