For those who work in ESL

Postby chanta76 » July 17th, 2017, 7:37 am

Do you actually teach? Or is it more about just making it fun in the class room?

I read stories where being an ESL teacher is more about just entertaining the students than actually teaching. If your white sometimes they just want you to be that poster boy as a white teacher.

You are getting paid 2 or 3 times as much as native teacher!
You are expected to teach!
If you are in a rural area the expectations maybe a little lower but you still expected to do a lot!

Johnny. You have tesol? certified teacher? If I remember in your other post you used to be in law enforcement. I read in other ESL forums it depends on the school. Usually if your white and young they hire you just because your white and young. They use that white person as a poster boy or girl to attract students. And typically they are just dancing white monkey for the asian students.

Now for the non-white teachers it's bit harder to get work but not impossible and from reading ESL forums you actually have to be able to teach.

It depends very much on the school and the context. In China I actually taught real lessons, while an older guy did silly stuff. They preferred the older guy because we were supposed to be a kind of comic relief from their otherwise rigorous studies. However, these days you really need to get certification and be theoretically able to teach. The market is tight.

CORNFED IS RIGHT!!!
Gotta call a spade a spade when it is true.
They do like older teachers here!

I left law enforcement. I am in Thailand teaching.

Unfortunately white and young people are the most useless people on the entire planet (even as a dancing white monkey). Schools will avoid them if possible because they have a deserved bad reputation. If you are around forty you are most wanted.

For "non-white teachers" THEY ARE FUCKINGG BITCHESS THEY BITCHH ABOUT EVERYTHING.
NEWSFLASH!!!
Non-whites get treated too good in the US of Gay. When non-whites leave the US and get treated equal they lose their FUCKINGG MINDS!!!
