Dude,

I hate to sound like a douche but if you're going to write in a forum for English language teachers, you should really pay attention to grammar, spelling and punctuation.

In the short message you wrote, you made an error in each category.

Sounds like you're qualified for the crap wages that the BI pay.

Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Good luck!!

I've worked for them for a year in santiago.

I dont know what theogodprofessor or sehablaingles are talking about.

They do everything they say in the advert. (pay for flights, sort out your visa, etc). The pay is good, I save about 300 a month on what they pay me.

Feel free to message me if you have any more detailed questions, I dont look on here very often.

Yeah, I know. I just have a problem with non-natives teaching English. I've come across so many of them here in Chile and they really do offer a sub-standard service.....bit like the British Institute Wink

if you want to work at a place that's a sweatshop for English (with you being the underpaid servant), this is the place. if not, look elsewhere.
