Q: Did you apply to ECA for a job?

I saw a post on ECA ages and ages ago and it suddenly occurred to me to ask about the visa things and how I was to be paid and this is what happened.

 

He seemed ok and quite positive. I did get hit with a surprise need for a demo but that wasn't the problem. However when I looked at his contract it was obviously unprofessional. Anyway I didn't worry too much because my contract was with the school, they make the visa but then things started to change. I became very suspicious when the school didn't want me to see their contract. I mean I need it to create the visa but at all times they wanted one of their staff to carry my visa creating contract to accompany me and hold onto all documents. When I asked to view the contract there were many excuses, such as  it was still in the office or OK I'll show you later when I have time very dodgy. Then later Kevie said it was ok to just work on an L visa and I needn't a working visa and that if the school didn't like it not to worry he can get me another place. It was all very suspicious.

 

Anyway BEWARE Kevie and his schools are obviously all pulling something so keep well away. I went to PRCEnglish www.prcenglish.cn in South China Normal University and the guy also had a very low budget thing going but at least he was honest about the conditions. I got my work visa! Also he pays better!

I don't think I have to ECA but most of the agencies work in that way! Not much change from city to city around here. If you find a good school stick to it because I don't think there are a lot of one's that you would want to stay for long. Make sure the people treat you good and make sure you do the same. Have a good attitude and only accept good attitudes and behaviour from others.....surprise

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
