Teachers Wanted: No Negroes, Indians, Mongoloids Need Apply

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Ok, let's look at English teachers in the Kingdom. The majority of white, western English teachers are unqualified and ill-equipped to teach English as they barely speak it themselves. Oooh I have a one month certificate at best, dude I'm qualified. Really? The desire to hire these people is less racist and more stupid frankly but it is a very limited talent pool.

I tend to agree. I haven't heard proper English spoken in the USA in years. The education system in the West is a disgrace. I taught Western Civ at a local college and was thoroughly disgusted by the lack of writing skills of many students.

The last thing Cambodia needs are a gaggle of barely educated morons passing on their legacy of illiteracy.

I welcome more stringent requirements for English teachers. Being a mongoloid myself, I accept the fact that I'll never teach in Cambodia. However, I DO wear a tie when sporting my wifebeater. I'ze do got SOME class.

I don't work in TEFL, but as far as I can see there has been a huge influx of young graduates who are nothing like the "Off the Rails" types who might have prevailed in previous years. I'm not sure how many actually stay that long but a fresh-faced, naive, straight-off-the-boat westerner is probably more in demand than a grizzly old guy.

That is very true, there are many like that but while they are a step in the right direction they still do not know how to teachyet, they did a tefl and some, not all but some, are let loose to inflict a lacklustre education on the poor blighters paying for the best they can afford.
