    I now wish I didn't know it existed, what a nasty looking website. Give my 3 month old niece a computer and it would look better
    Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.

    It shows how little attention you should pay to some of the stuff on there too. I used to work for Bell in one of their Bangkok centres and they were in a different league. Everything you could possibly wish for was done for you, the pay was excellent and the number of contact hours were low; some would say ridiculously low!

    Resources were coming out of our ears; 5 Internet-connected PCs plus 2 laptops for 10 teachers. I think we had almost every teaching manual that's ever been published! We were regularly taken out for meals and really looked after.

    To tarnish a whole company because of one person's experience is very unfair.

    edit: on reading it again the poster does go on to lay the blame solely at the feet of the centre's DOS rather than Bell, so just ignore the above!
    Samak- "Westerners have a saying, 'Look at both sides of the coin', but Westerners only look at one side, Myanmar is a Buddhist country. Myanmar's leaders meditate. They say the country lives in peace. We have three neighbours: Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. We use their resources, all three of them. If we have this great relationship, why should we pick on them?....They (the leaders) found new gas resources. I negotiated with them so we can sign contracts."

    So what? What do you think, I'm some bleedin tefl training freak? I teach first grade for 24,000B a month. How do we know guys like you don't have a vested interest in such affairs, always trying to make us believe we need something only you can offer. Reminds me of mouthwash commertials .. first they convince you you have bad breath and then offer you the solution. Your word to me is as good as whatever/whomever it's compared to. I don't know you, I don't know the webmaster at TEFLblacklist, I don't know Bruce, I never met Phil. TEFL trainers are boring, football is boring, people who put on aires are boring. I'll be glad when all the trainers, except Ken of course, are out of business. I learned this job OJT. Is there something wrong with that?

    Does having to work with one or two assholes fit into your scheme? It does mine.

    this shoddy website
    What? This one or that one? White on black is easier to read for most people, I'll defend that. People come on and tell you stuff they believe. Doesn't mean I have to believe it too. I'm not a Christian. I already had a mother and father, don't need any more guidance I guess, much less a sales pitch.

    What the fuck are you on about? Have you been sniffing glue?
    Let me guess, you want a flame war so this goes to the Box, right? R U an investor too?

    No, it says ON. Of course I like TD's colours too. Want to see a nice website? I asked Lou to check this one out when he first mentioned re-doing AJF. GTAGarage.com. I'm a mod there.

    Re: TEFL Blacklist

    TEFLBlacklist is hard to read. Harder to follow. Still quoting that site's forum that shan't be named, even though its deader than dirt. Wonder if the admin ever actually has looked at any of the sites he quotes?

    Its a good example of bad color combinations. Maybe its meant to be that way?

    Re: TEFL Blacklist

    I have a question for all of you out there in TV land:

    B says ******
    But C says ******

    Who do you believe? The best, most convincing writer?
    The guy on the prettiest web page?
    The web page with the best flashing banners?
    The guy with a conflict of interest?
    What your mum taught you about who to believe?


    Say a guy lauds a school on a website. You go and work there only to discover it's a shit job, stupid admin, too many lies to mention, a staffroom full of tossers. You post your experience and grievances on a blacklist site. 100 guys come on and tell you you're high on glue, a loser, a wanker, a backpacker fake teacher. Would you ever turn to yourself and think: Shit, maybe that school was okay after all. There must be something wrong with me. I'd better get that CELTA asap.
