nteresting that Mr Bubbles doesn't like the work there, but remains anyway. Maybe it is all the young women waiting to get married that is the attraction.
I am Polish, I married a Pole, I've bought a flat in Poland.
"Methodologists are the school's ar sehole. Each school has one and they are usually full of sht".
I stand by my statement. One day you too will work with one of these idiots and you will be thanking Bubbles for this gem.
I think ...
...it is very arrogant way to respond and really impolite to speak that way about one's employer in a foreign country.
And why do you think that? You think I should be grateful for my job? I put in the hours and perform to a standard above that of what my keepers demand - a standard considerably higher than my Polish colleagues I might add - and yet you seem to believe the employer is doing me a favour in some way.
Let me tell you about two of my esteemed colleagues for a moment. Mr x (not real name) spends the whole 90 minute lesson chatting in Polish, as do his students. Apart from an occasional short tape recording, you won't hear more than 5 words of badly pronounced English for the whole session. Mrs Y speaks English for the whole class (well, 80% of it) but nothing else happens - her students don't get a chance to say anything as they make desultory notes in their books and mutter to each other in Polish. At the end of the class, she manages a fair impression of Daley Thompson as she sprints down the corridor and towards the exit, leaving the class to pick up their things and wonder why they ever signed up to a language course.
Admittedly these ar the worst examples but they are indicative of the low standards within the Polish EFL market. Low standards brought on by poor pay and employment conditions, pikey money grabbing school policies and above all the low standard of training that Polish teachers undergo.
MrBubbles is the typical representative of a wise-ass.
Thank you. I take that to be a compliment.
Cash money just by customers were counted next to your classroom. Was it a lack of a business accountant, or what? Is there a cash culture (do renka)?
Well you'd better sit down a moment because I have news for you - schools are money making ventures not charity organisations. Handing a fistful of creased notes in return for the service I described above sums up entirely the grubby world of EFL. Having a school methodologist lecture someone on teaching methodology is akin to Stalin delivering a lecture on Human rights. Why the cash? A lot of schools are probably fronts for money laundering operations.
