Be careful about English teaching jobs in China

I was in the mood to complain about my heavy workload until I read this article about Chinese employers abusing foreign English teachers. This reminded me of my first job teaching English in Korea, at terrible school in Chinju (Jinju) named English House.

None of us ended up dead at English House as one man did in China recently), but we did experience a number of scary incidents that really just can’t happen in America.

I guess my point is that if you’re taking a job in China, Korea, or anywhere else really do some research. You should be able to do some networking and then find a place that recommended by someone you know and trust. If not, make sure you can escape if you need to.
