Hi all, I have received an offer from Chi Cheng International English School. I have read terrible things about Gallop, which apparently changed it's name to Chi Cheng, and wanted to double check it was the same. Based on the experiences of others, I would need serious reassurance to accept this.

This is a website I found (link wasn't provided by the school), but I assume it is the same.

A bad review for sure,

Basically, is this the only Chi Cheng people have come across?

Sounds fun :

"The three people in the pic at the bottom:The first calls himself BBC stands for Big Boss Chen this guy is the worst one of them all he uses your visa's to buy cars illegally from South China we found documentation in their office with our names on for 7 cars from south China."

"Before Chinese New Year we were going to collect our wages. All FTs and some chinese teachers were allocated a classroom for which we were to scrub clean before inspection by the managers. If the classroom was not clean enough (chairs scrubbed washed, floors, walls, desks, windows, fans seen to) we were told to go back and do it again. Only until this was done we were allowed to collect our pay and go home. They told us this was a traditional Chinese tradition of cleansing before the New Year,"

On one of their webpages they refer to themselves as "Gallop International English School".

As has been mentioned many times on this forum, your best bet is to ask for the contact information for the current foreign teachers.
