So, besides my asking for advice on a high school demo lesson today I would also like to ask for some input on the Walen School in Phuket. Welcome to Thai Language School | www.Thaiwalen.com They called me and asked me in for an interview this evening, saying training will start tomorrow! Me being who I am, I am sure I will get offered a position at the high school AND at Walen. Walen has not mentioned salary/hours yet, but I'll post that tonight. Till then I would really appreciate any insight into the Walen school. Any one worked for them?
Thanks in advance!
We're only allowed to say good things about schools.
If you PM me I promise not to tell...
I know nothing about the school.
Oooook, thanks. Anyone heard anything about the conditions at Wallen?
I think they use the Callen "method", which should tell you all you need to know.
Nuts In A Blender
I've been reading up a lot about it and what is said seems quite mixed. Some say it's too simple and restrictive, while others appreciate the simpleness when the students are of a particularly low level.
Ja, so the school offers 250 bht an hour. No visa. No medical. No nothing. Oh, and split shifts. What a joke.
Also a bad sign about the employee pool. There are people who'd take that job and write home with glee.
