Dictionary.com has two definitions of ‘ocker’
noun
1.
an uncultured Australian male.
2.
an uncouth, offensive male chauvinist.

Neither describes a female in NZ and neither describes an accent - especially not a NZ one
An Oz accent is often called ‘Strine’
And a NZ one ‘New Zild’.
And why is having a local accent such a no no?

Another point is that I’m always amused by posters who describe ESL opportunities in Aust or NZ as ‘sucks’ or some other negative wording.
These are native English speaking countries where demand for ESL services is bound to be minuscule compared to the main demand locations. If I was an ESL teacher why shouldn't I work in my home country and that's what many do after returning. The lack of turnover such as you get in China is self evident.
Also having supervised many ESL teachers who didn’t have any ESL training, all of them would have benefited from even a short course in the subject. To haughtily dismiss a tutor of ESL because they don’t have your standard of education is snobbery of the first degree (no pun..).
You don’t ignore the mechanic who fixes your car because you have a degree and he a trade qual. He is a specialist in his field and worth listening to.
Even just to get across to a few self-important MAs what Teacher Talk Time is and how to avoid the pitfalls would do more for ESL teaching than any other single technique.

Frankly mentions no posts on the Vietnam website. suggest he/she complain to the management because there is an imposter there using his/her name.

I looked at expat exposed but gave up after reading a recent post by someone who was critical of Aust or NZ because his house insurance had gone up.
Clearly never heard of reinsurance which internationalises claim history.
9/11 and the Air France Concorde crash plus the Haiti earthquake and the Japan one plus the emerging disaster in New Orleans have had and will have a bearing on premiums worldwide - not to mention Christchurch.
Such lack of even basic knowledge is strange from someone whose other criticisms of his host country included an accusation of 'insularity'.
