Missing for 12 years, David Sneddon a graduate of Brigham Young University was found alive and well with a wife and two kids living in North Korea, whose government agents had kidnapped him to teach the President of North Korea. No this is not a joke as the whole story is told at this link...

www.independent.co.uk/news/world/america...ong-un-a7220951.html

So now you have six things to worry about when taking an ESL or TEFL job in China;

1.) Hepatitis
2.) Toxic Air Pollution (only during winter months)
3.) Illegal visas and black jobs peddled by dubious unlicensed agents/recruiters
4.) Getting cheated by unlicensed training centers
5.) Getting arrested, jailed, and deported for working without a Z visa
6.) Getting kidnapped by North Koran agents (just joking, this is the only known case of kidnapping by foreign governments, although some teachers have disappeared after meeting pretty Chinese girls!)

This post has been moderated UJ

If you ever get an offer by a school called (NAME REMOVED) which I am putting in the spotlight. An international English school in Jinan. Don't fall into a trap, signing with them. This school has been blacklisted and commented by many past employees. The list of mistreatments are long and painful to read. These include; an evil boss who blackmails and threatens employees. The school withholds release papers to do with you as they please. The school does not respect the contract but rather improvises on it for their benefit. Meetings where the boss tells employees he will make their life difficult. with open direct threats. You might get fired at any moment for no reason due to the bosses unstable character and occasional show of power. Also this school has been found to discriminate against shorter, colored and non-chinese lifestyled teachers. If i remember correctly, the year I worked for this company, 10 teachers quit due to the lack of immoral management.

I was just wondering if anyone had information on New Sailing of Beijing. They are an agency I have been in contact with, but I can't find any information about them online.

They haven't asked for anything like my passport yet, but I would be reluctant to turn it over without further information. They don't seem to have a website.

I already have a job in China, I wouldn't want to leave this to be scammed.

He relies upon his family’s wealth and political clout, the remoteness of Astana and relative expense of obtaining work permits to dissuade teachers from objecting to these sudden changes – in addition to having nearly every foreign member of staff on a different contract and with different working conditions (read: divide and conquer is alive and well). He has threatened the lives of teachers’ pets, made sexually inappropriate remarks about female members of staff, withheld wages and CONFISCATED TEACHERS’ PASSPORTS which required the intervention of several embassies on more than one occasion. Hours are long – thirteen hour days (ten classes) are standard practice and teachers are often summoned by the owner in the five minute break before their last class to be informed of unexpected changes. By this stage, teachers are exhausted and unable to object. Teachers are regularly prevailed upon to work on their days off – usually with less than twelve hours’ notice – in order to conduct illegal “presentations” in public schools to collect students’ data for LTC’s advertising purposes. Planned holidays on regularly rostered days off – for which tickets can be provided as evidence – are not accepted in instances where teachers are suddenly required to do so – and refusal has previously resulted in termination of employment. Quick Stats for a TWO MONTH period: Foreign teachers fired: 5 Directors fired: 1 Directors quit: 2 Administration staff fired: 2 Administration staff quit: 1 In 6 months: Foreign staff unfairly financially penalized: 4 Administration staff not paid: 3 Local teachers quit/were fired WITHOUT PAY: 10 TL;DR Holidays – there are none (despite the contract stating national holidays are off, they’re quite simply not) Health Insurance – there isn’t any (it took 3-4 months after arrival for most teachers to get theirs and it doesn’t deal with a wide range of health issues and the amount it covers is minimal at a shoddy facility at best) Wages – they’re late. And if you’re fired there are clauses in the new contracts that stipulate a month’s worth of wages can be withheld as a “disciplinary” measure. Plus the local teachers and admin staff don’t get paid at all. Schedule – changes weekly, if not daily. It is rare to have two days off in a row. Very, very rare. Hours – always increasing (with the recent sacking of five teachers, those who remain have had non-negotiable increases in their contact hours from 30 to SIXTY) Teambuilding – there isn’t any. With all teachers on different schedules and different contracts, the divide-and-conquer methodology is alive and well and there's very limited opportunity for a social life. Resources and equipment – not the best; not the worst. The books are alright but there aren’t enough of them. The CDs that accompany the books generally don’t work, and the students often don’t have books at all which means a lot of time running around making photocopies.

I used to work for a language school in a small city north of Beijing. For many years the school employed teachers without any proper certification or even any experience to teach ESL. They got away with this by paying off the police and issuing fake degrees to satisfy immigration. When I arrived at the school, I believe I was on an "L" visa - and taught illegally for a month before heading to HK to sort out my "Z" visa. At the time I was pretty naive. After months of bullying and manipulation I understood how corrupt the school was.

To this day, the old teachers who I used to work with, are still working there illegally. Has anyone had a similar experience of a language school doing this?

I'm sorry this happened to you, but I'm glad China is cracking down on illegal teachers and phoney companies.

I used to work for a language school and the owners of the school would buy fake degrees for a few of the teachers. They have gotten away with this for years and the teachers still work there to this day, illegally.

I'm going to try my best to report and shame this school because they treated me very badly... The owners especially deserve everything that's coming to them.

ESL in China [Only]... :: Warning -Avoid China Job & Visa Agents w/ Chinglish Name
Author: China.Scam.Patrol Subject: Warning -Avoid China Job & Visa Agents w/ Chinglish Name Posted: Sun Jun 12, 2016 2:31 pm (GMT 1) Topic Replies: 0 Actually this warning applies to anyone seeking ANY job or internship in China, the land of endless scams. To be fair, about half of the scam artists in China are now fellow foreigners but those that are Chinese use Chinglish names that are totally fabricated. What is a "Chinglish" name? An English first name combined with a Chinese last name like "Victor Li" or "Anna Chen". They tell you these names because you will not even think they are fake names and when you finally do realize you were cheated months later and go to the cop shop in China with your complaint, you will not even have a real name to give to the police! Therefore, if you are dealing with a Chinese agent of any sort (recruiter, visa agent, or job agent) demand to see their original Chinese national ID card (plastic like a credit card that is identical to the one below). Copy both sides of it and make sure the photo matches the person you are dealing with. If you are not meeting face to face with the person then be sure to have a video skype call with him or her and snap their photo BEFORE you ask them for a color scan of the below ID card. If they say their camera is not working, just say good by because they are a scammer. No matter how nice and friendly they may be with you, remember that they do this every day for a living and they know how to win your confidence with Skype interviews that may even be real, and testimonial videoa and online reviews that are not. They may actually make you a job offer but it will be for some remote location or with a salary that is well below the 16.000 monthly average. They may be one of these guys here who will cause you at least a $10,000 loss - http://chinascamwatch.wordpress.com.

Seems unlikely they're "trying to get me to stay" another year, as they've made no mention of this. Mind you I'm in good standing, but, one would think if they were willing to put up roadblocks to get me to renew for another year, they'd accompany that by some, you know, words to that effect ("Sorry the new system is giving you problems, but you could stay on work here...")

And there's been zero mention of any of this.

I suspect it's more incompetence than malfeasance, but I could be wrong. (I also subsequent to starting this thread found that there supposedly is a new online .system for FEC that was implemented in January of this year).

Your current employer is blowing smoke up your butt to get you to stay put for another year. Demand your release letter and you have 15 days to go visit SAFEA with your new invitation letter from another employer or acceptance letter from a university and you will get a new FEC or student visa depending upon whether you want to keep working or study.



ESL in China [Only]... :: Cancelling Foreign Expert Certificate for New Job
Author: Katmandue Subject: Cancelling Foreign Expert Certificate for New Job Posted: Wed Jun 08, 2016 10:01 pm (GMT 1) Topic Replies: 2 I arrived in Southern China in 2014 to start work with a university. The following spring I was invited to renew for an additional year, which I gladly did, as my experience had been quite positive. This year I decided that two whole academic years was enough, and so opted to take a new job in Beijing, which requires me to move (I'm about 1,000 miles away). My current contract -- as well as my FEC and residence permit -- expires on June 30th (that roughly corresponds to the end of the school year) and I'm scheduled to start in Beijing in September. I've signed a contract with my new employer, and have received a signed copy back from them. Because I wanted to stay in China for a bit after my current contract expires, my plan was to travel to Beijing toward the end of June to get a new FEC as well as a renewed residence permit on my passport. My understanding (based on conversations with the recruiter I've been working with, and the person in charge at my current (old) employer) was that a "cancellation of Foreign Expert Certificate" could be issued about a month prior to the expiration of my contract (ie, beginning of June), and that this would enable enough time for Beijing to receive it, and get my new paperwork ready. Well, long story short, my current employer is now claiming new rules (perhaps new software required by the Chinese Government? -- it's hard to get a clear explanation) will no longer allow this procedure, but that in fact as of now, one must wait until AFTER the expiration of the contract for the cancellation to be issued. Well, unfortunately for me, AFTER the expiration of the contract also means AFTER the expiration of my FEC and residence permit -- which means I can no longer be in the country legally. Needless to say my plans have had to be radically changed -- including expensive charges to alter the dates of my airline flight back to the US -- due to this "new procedure." In short, it sounds as if it's no longer feasible to get one's new FEC/Residence permit while in China -- at least if the the latter expires at the same time as the old contract. I guess one option might have been to travel to HK to get a tourist visa, but at this point it wouldn't be worth the extra money for hotels, train fair, etc. Just wondering if anybody has run into such issues, or heard anything about "new procedures." I strongly suspect my old uni is giving me the runaround (after all, once you're on the cusp of being a former employee, you're no longer exactly a high priority). But I could be wrong. Any insight appreciated. [...]

I agree with JustMe, the first sentence is the best of these, because the verb 'refurbishes' agrees with 'organisation,' which is singular. However, the phrase 'who refurbishes your unwanted electricals and distributes them to developing communities across Africa,' is a defining relative clause which modifies 'a non profit making organisation.' As such, it should use the relative pronoun 'which' instead of 'who,' although 'that' is also acceptable.

Great news is good to share! Things are looking up for TEFL teachers and all expats now working in China...

In 2014 foreign employees in China were granted 15 employee rights that are now actually enforced. This year China's Privacy Act was amended to cover and protect ALL employees in China no matter who your employer may be. Unfortunately interns and part time casual laborers are not covered.

For the rest of us working full time as a ESL or TEFL teacher in China the news is great. Why?

Now your employer cannot use your photo/image on the internet, in posters, on Wei Xin, or any other public forum, nor can they give your personal information to any third party without first obtaining your written consent and tell you how your information will be used. This applies not only to the internet but also posters, flyers, and printed ads in newspapers or magazines.

If you do not give your consent, you cannot be punished in any way, and if you are, your employer can be fined 100,000 yuan or have their business license suspended up to 90 days. If you do not know all 15 of your employee rights click here and get up to speed! http://www.chinaforeignteachersunion.com/2014/12/surprise-you-have-employee-rights-in.html

Now if you can only get them to shut down those nasty coal plants!

After you read this ask yourself this, as teachers do we limit our educational assistance to only language or do we at least warn others not run with scissors or eat juicy looking apples found in strange places? Many teachers preach the Bible but I think this topic is far more important and useful. So as of today, I will start teaching all my high school students not to believe all the "news" they see and hear and how to analyze and evaluate the source.

Hello Darnheather

Welcome to the forum

There will be a teaching job for a single parent with children; you just have to find it. There are so many scenarios and so, it is difficult to foresee all the options, therefore you will probably have to make a compromises along the way.

The contract offered is likely to be single but accompanied, which means, they will pay for your flights and visas etc but you will have to pay for your children. Anything more will be a bonus.

I wouldn't mention the children until you are offered the job and then you will know why you were turned down. If the children could go to the same school as yourself that would solve a big problem. I remember a single Slovakian mother whose 12 year old child could speak some English but ended up in an Indian school because that was all there was available and I don't know if they taught in English, Hindustani or Urdu. It would be useful if there were others in the same situation as yourself and you could help each other. A maid (helper) would also be useful to see to the children when you weren't there. You really need someone on the inside. Unfortunately, I am out of touch with the expat community but my experience was in the Arab world and I wouldn't recommend that because you and your children would be continually pestered by Arab men.

Hopefully the forum readership may be able to help you. Alternatively, you can always try Korea or Germany again.

Best of luck

I worked teaching English in Turkey from 1999-2002. I have since obtained my master's in applied linguistics with a concentration in teaching English as a second language. I'm ready to work abroad again but need to take my children with me. They are used to living overseas (Korea and Germany).

Do these jobs exist or is it all for young singles?
