Lorna Whiston WAS one of the few reputable language schools in the past.

If you can obtain a copy of the contract see if it is what you
expect then go for it. Check the wages and the cost of living in
Singapore (accommodation, travel etc).

Remember S$4k is the least to live on if you like your privacy.

hey

Krakatoa, what other language schools can you recommend for me where I can apply? I want to move to Singapore to teach there starting October or January so I want to start sending out my CV...
I have a degree in Speech and Drama and my PGCE and I am currently teaching in South Korea. I have looked at international schools as well but I don't have enough teaching experience yet but I still think I am just going to send my CV to a few and see what happens

Thanks in advance Smile Smile

What I dislike about Lorna Whiston is that those who are in their pay and have attained a good position say it with such careless reverence, like E.F. Hutton Remember those commercials when someone in a crowded restaurant would say ''E.F. Hutton says..." and a hush would fall over the crowd. Then the voice-over: 'When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen!'


Lorna Whiston: they'll say it like Lorna is an education god and her name has the same cachet as Versace or Ralph Lauren when all she is is some broad who started a school somewhere. Does she have some unique insight and philosophy? Even if she does, I think she's dead now and how superior could her philosophy be to all others? :yawn:
