Does anyone have any recent or updated information about the Australian College of Kuwait? Could I receive some advice about current pay, living accommodations, and working conditions? I am interviewing with them soon and would like some inside info if this is possible. Thank you for any assistance.

In response to my own post above--the salary they are offering me is very, very good as a Senior Instructor.

That depends on one's definition of "very, very good." It also says nothing about benefits provided and credentials required.

I am a senior level teacher with over 30 years of experience, MA TESOL, MA Linguistics. I am writing to ask about the working conditions and the situation there.

Check glassdoor.com; there are nine employee reviews on the Australian College of Kuwait, some as recent as this year.

I remember glassdoor.com. I think they banned me for the most use of foul language in a review of a single employer. 3 or 4 moderators fainted on the spot. Twisted Evil

I doubt it... they just rolled their eyes, deleted your post, and banned you. Same old same old. It was rather a waste of your time too. Instead of being able to warn others about the negatives of an employer in measured detail, I'm sure that the employer was happy to see you muzzled.

Venting with obscenities is best saved for one's blog.

Hi phonologist. Can you share your experience with ACK. Do they offer research facility along with good salary? How is your teaching experience.
I checked glassdoor but in my opinion most of reviews on glassdoor are either by frustrated employees or fake reviews.

Phonologist hasn't posted for over a year... so he may not reappear to answer your question.

He probably went there and after walking round the Avenues Mall 200 times, realized there was absolutely nothing to do in Kuwait and left.

To be fair, he would have been able to walk around other malls, visit Kuwait Towers, eat in one of the numerous restaurants, visit the IMAX and the aquarium.
