    TEFL's rep wasn't my point D. I was only trying to highlight actual criteria that would be helpful in assessing a TEFL certification course. Location of adverts is hardly valid--nor does it make one a snake oil saleman.

    ^^ avoiding anothers point so effectively is a concession of your understanding.

    Feel free to send a PM and enlighten me.

    Shall I assume a failure to send said PM is a concession of your own erronious assumption?

    Back on topic.

    Well, in my opinion it is valid.
    They're basically trying to sell something.
    So placing their ad's in the 'Personnel Wanted' column is misleading and speaks volumes about the way they do business.
    Game? This wasn't meant to be a game!!!...NEVER!!

    Mate, I have heard and read loads. I won't pass it on as I don't have any first hand knowledge

    To be honest I'm not that interested - certainly not about to make any claims I can't back up on an internet forum

    Many people, including me, have been there and were very happy with what we got for our money, many people have been there and were unhappy. That means that everybody has an opinion...just like their arsehole...and it doesn't mean the place has a crap reputation all over the world.

    If you want to talk crap reputations try asking people overseas what they think of farang guys who come to Thailand ...for anything...let alone to be a Thai TEFLer. All this ripping into people doesn't help the reputation one bit.

    Re: My fairwell to TEFL

    Thnx for the kind thoughts, everyone. And to the guy who did't like our advertising certs+jobs in the jobs section, sorry if we offended.

    My new venture is restoring classic cars.

    No, I am not a milionaire but TI does owe me a lot of money in back salary!!

    My strengths, I believe, are seeing market opportunitiues and then actually taking advantage of them. When I started TI it was because the CELTA in Hong Kong was $4,000 and there was a six-month waiting list to get on!

    Well I've never heard a good word about it! Anyway reputation is a very subjective matter.

    If you want to talk crap reputations try asking people overseas what they think of farang guys who come to Thailand ...for anything...let alone to be a Thai TEFLer. All this ripping into people doesn't help the reputation one bit.
    You're not making any sense. I said that they have a shit reputation, I base that on the fact that I have read and heard second-hand stories. I am not out to make any accusations against anyone

    Who's ripping into anyone? I just commented on my own point of view. Sure mate, we don't all agree - if you think they have a good reputation then just say so
