Since there is no "comedy" category here at Open Letter we chose to post this in the "Education" section although "Crime" took a close second.
To be blunt and direct, too many foreigners are lured to come work/teach in China based on false pretenses (lies). Here is what they are told by greedy and less-than-honest China job recruiters.
THE 10 BIGGEST LIES TOLD TO NEW CHINA TEFL TEACHERS:
Anyone who even thinks about working in China will be told at least a dozen lies for every truth they hear from a China job recruiter. Here are the top 10 lies below so you will know them when you hear them:..
1.) You MUST have a TEFL certificate to teach English in China.
2.) You do not need a Z visa to teach in China for your first 90-day probationary period.
3.) Foreigners have no employee rights in China for one year after arrival.
4.) You really don't need a university degree to teach English in China.
5.) Everyone works 6 days a week.
6.) Marketing & Sales is part of every China foreign teacher's job.
7.) The air and water pollution is not as bad as they say.
8.) You will save at least $20,000 a year working in China.
9.) You cannot get a good job in China without a recruiter like me and a TEFL certificate.
10.) This is the standard contract every teacher must sign or you simply will not be hired.
