Is this real?why teach in a classroom for $10 when u can teach online for much more

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.

In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

There is a Khmer girl in Siem Riep who teaches Khmer online for $10 an hour. I thought that was excessive. Australia has always had the school of the air for rural kids so it must work.

A few weeks past was someone on FB offering $15.hr.Teach from home. No degree needed. Must be native speaker but without significant accent so read the ad.

I have a feiend who is retired Professor from Yorkshire. He speaks perfect English I am certain. However three beers apiece & I haven't a clue what he is saying. :beer2:

I can see the day comming in the future where most all schooling , especially unis students will be studying on line.
Make sense when you think about it. One teacher can teach a hundred students with video conferencing, no travel time involved and no expensive building or equipment needed, and should make learning a lot cheaper.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

My Khmer is very bad, but when I drink everyone understands me. I can also parallel park when I'm drunk.

Thanks!... I'm now picturing Jeremy Clarkson 'laying on' the accent.
Notice the ad says - Earn up to $25/hr! I'll bet most people are making around $10/hr. :roll:
You could be next.

Same as advertisments that state ''save up to 50%, while you may actually pay 10% more. :beer1:
