We all know that when it comes to TEFL Courses there are no international standards or certifications. We all have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly right? Well the China Teachers Alliance which has both Chinese and Foreign teachers as members, has compiled this warning list that is distributed to their 400,000+ membership https://www.docdroid.net/kRwv0oN/ctablacklist2020-pdf. I just cleaned out my inbox and regret that I didn't check on my email more than once a month. Anyway, it is self-explanatory. I hope you all make the best of the holidays in this sucky year of the virus.

Thank you for this badly-need post. At least it will stop a lot of new TEFL teachers from getting ripped off, just as I was during my first year. My roommate who has been teaching TEFL for 12 years gave me these links which also saved my butt a few times. I am sharing them with you guys here and hope you also will pass them forward to help reduce the grief and stress of our colleagues all over the world:

Personally, I would rather learn from the mistakes of others, rather than my own! So I avoid all the websites that are reported by others as posting non-existent jobs to bait you to lure you to the site. The site reported here https://media.makeameme.org/created/cafd6daa3f.jpg knowingly post ads for scam artists and identity thieves.
