Yes, lots of the usual hilarity to rope non-teachers into an experience of a lifetime!!!
They charge 325 Earth Dollars to find a McBuxiban job in Shanghai or up a tree in ‘an authentic Chinese village’? The pay is ‘… $400-$750 a month.’ - according to the flob’s currency converter, that is 2731 to 5120 yuan. That’s just absurd UNLESS you are a total newb with no skills whatsoever. A latte in Starbucks (no, I know that’s not a necessity, but it’s a good marker) costs 60 or 70. Stuff that!
‘Most of the time schools do not provide a curriculum. Many people find this a relief because they can create their own lesson plans.’
How does a new graduate write a curriculum and lesson plans and materials? In all the ‘free time’ promised?
‘In comparison, an average citizen in China only makes $200 dollars a month and works at least fifty hours a week. If you take into consideration the small amount of working hours per week, free accommodations, and the fact that it is so very cheap to live in China the pay is quite nice.’
Blah blah - usual reasoning to get poor new grad non-teachers signing up. So the foreigner gets more cash than the average office worker? The foreigner also pays a third extra for everything, and will also need a plane ticket home, at some point.
They sound nice enough, and I’m sure there are far far worse agencies there, but … no-one falls for that stuff if they’re over 24, do they?
