When you get job offers, google the name of the school and if you have them, the names of the people associated with the school. You'll often find others asking about the same school,sometimes you'll see negative school reviews / warnings - don't work at this school, they ripped me off kind of thing -  and sometimes personal blogs of teachers experience working in China (or wherever) where they talk about their work life.

 

Join the various ESL websites ( I assume there are still some operating, last time I looked at daveseslcafe nobody had posted anything for months) and ask if anyone knows anything about the school.

 

Also, ask the school for contact email addresses of the other teachers there. Legit schools usually have no problem providing these and you can get an idea of what to expect from the people already there.

Thank you. It seems like a recruit Agency. It’s “Chinaexpat.cn” have you heard of it?? There’s so many fraud websites, I’m just trying to be vigilant.

If you apply for a job that was advertised, and they try to get you to apply at a different school or location, this is a hint that they are scamming you. 

 

Never send your personal information over the internet until the interview. Block out sensitive information before sending the documents electronically. Tell them that you will offer the real documents after the contract is signed and you are on loation. 

 

The onus is on you to do your homework and asking all the questions. Ask for photos of the school, your apartment, and other things that are important to you. Always speak to a foreign teacher in employment and ask lots of questions. Be specific with what the requirements are and make notes to compare to the final contract.

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
