Please see the many threads here about this company. This is not even an ESL job - they just prey on ESL teachers because they think we are suckers. I cannot understand why Dave's countenances these people. This job offer is essentially a scam.

Besides Dave's thread here, you can check out this:

There are plenty of English teaching schools in Singapore.

"I can read systems" is one, but they can't be trusted.

I was interviewed by them via skype, and then offered a job on the spot.

They made all sorts of promises and when I said to them to organise the airfare and I'll be straight over, they immediately withdrew their offer, and said I wouldn't like Singapore if I had no money.

A total load of bollocks.

Half of my family ligve in Singapore, so I contacted them to do some investigations, and it turns out that these folk are not honest, and you may or may not get what is promised. Your work wil be very different from what you sign on for, and the quality of the school leaves a lot to be desired.

I understand that they offer jobs to just about anybody who can speak English, and then cull you out in Singapore. This is after YOU have spent all the money on airfares and accomodation. (They do not provide this). If their student numbers drop or don't meet expectations then they cut you loose without any help at all. Or so I am led to believe.

There are many schools t5hat are much better, and if you do a quick google seacrh, you will find heaps.

The other thing to think about, is the students. These are the children of rich people, and my information has it that they are "slow". Are you able to handle that?

At the moment, I am being interviewed for two positions in China which are much more attractive than dealing with "I can Read".
