Look, I use the term falsehoods bcs they are false. Both myself and Burdik have picked up multiple inaccuracies. You have not challenged a single one of our corrections because you know you cannot. May be you worked here a while ago. You should be clear then that your opinions are based on information that is out of date. I have not addressed any opinions just inaccuracies posted as "facts" and I have done so to correct the balance. There is no benefit to me for doing it but it is the right thing to do. You are right, it is possible to move depts in Yasar but at the end of the day people on this board are interested in the Prep Class and it is what I know about. It is fair they should get information given in good faith.

I don't feel attacked or belittled! I was a litigation lawyer for 10 years so it will take a bit more than this to get to me. As you suggest, let's leave it to the readers to decide. I trust their reading comprehension skills will give them a full understanding of the situation. I note you have given up trying to denigrate the CEA...wise move on your part. If people need to know the improvements that have been made in the Prep Class in recent years, they need look no further than it. So unless you want to debate something specific and material, we should bow out gracefully.

Ok that one really came out of left field Very Happy Quincy Jones the record producer?? Or Dr Quincy the investigative medical doctor of hit 70s TV series fame?? Or is there another famous lawyer turned teacher called Quincy? I can only assume you have resorted to using the Chewbacca Defence tactic. Nice work!

Burdick & Rouge - I met a super nice guy from Yasar last week in Philadelphia. I feel the interview went well, and I'm hopeful that I'll get an offer in the next week or two. I always take the negative on these blogs with a cup of salt. Two questions: what do you love MOST about working there? Are the native-English teachers working there now as annoying as the dopes who blog on here?

Ossie clearly shows his ignorance on his NOT knowing CEA. It was a significant selling point when I learned Yasar has CEA accreditation. CEA is the most important ESL "seal of approval." A disorganized dump would not get this. Congratulations, Yasar!

Hi Paul

It is work, so love might be too strong a term lol, but I am really happy with the people I work with and the working environment in general. Not in a constant rush. The native-English speaking teachers are very nice actually, with the exception of, say, Lantern-Rouge maybe Smile Nah, he's a good friend of mine.

Good luck with the offer and maybe meet soon.

btw, the guy you met in Philadelphia, Engin, is the manager, who obviously is part of the administration and who -according to one user in this very thread - I quote "can hardly speak English". Just thought it might give you a better understanding of why I get mad at some of the stuff posted here about Yasar.
