Bad  Caleson Foreign Language English School
Key Words: Contract Yunnan  Kunming
Titlea school from Hell, in Kunming
Author: John Cohoon <johncohoon(at)hotmail.com>
My nightmare at the Kunming Caleson Foreign Language English School. If you want to be cheated, lied to, and treated like a slave, this is the school for you. If you sign a contract, beware, Jenny the principal is the sole arbritrator of who and how the contract has been broken. There is a $3000 yuan penalty for breaking the contract and only SHE decides. Can you spell corruption?
On average, the Chinese teachers at the school last 2 months before quitting, some foreigner teachers last longer.
Kunming is a great city and the cost of living is very low compared to Canada, but be very careful of some of the private schools.

TitleSalary is not the most important factor
Author: William B. Foulk    Send Message to Author
I list this suggestion under "Salary" because salary is not the most important factor when selecting a teaching job in China. Living conditions are far more important.
I have been working in China for most of the past five years, in nine different cities. Recently I signed a two year contract here at YAU (Yunnan Agricultural University) because my living conditions here are excellent. My apartment is great; the weather is the best in China, and the school administrators do not look over your shoulder every minute.
Here I make 3,200rmb per month. In Shanghai I made 6,000; in Beijing I made 5,500, in Wuhan I made 9,000, in Nanning 5,000. However, my life here is much better than in any of those cities.

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.
