Though RYB Education上海419hat Oswaldo has

a valid work visa, the regulations mean that as a Colombian citizen

whose mother tongue is Spanish, he is ineligible to work as an English-language teacher.上海419

An undercover investigation by China Central Television recently showed that salaries p

上海419品茶微信aid to foreign English-language teachers are much higher than those for Chinese nationals doing the same job.

For example, at one training institution in Beijing, a Chinese teacher of English can earn 300 yu

an an hour, while foreign teachers can earn as much as 1,800 yuan per hour simply by talking to the students.上海419

When the undercover reporter asked to see the qualifications and working visas of foreig

n teachers at one training institute, his request was refused because it “violates the teachers’ privacy”. A different i

nstitute refused to show the reporter the relevant documents because it was a “business secret”.上海419

At another online English training institution, the reporter discovered that two of the English-language te

achers were Portuguese nationals, even though the上海419品茶微信

institution repeatedly assured him that all of its teachers were native speakers.

Chu Zhaohui, a senior researcher at the National Institute of Education

Sciences, said the market for foreign teachers is like a gold rush, with abundant o上海419

pportunities, few regulations and big profits for those who want to make a quick buck.

“For foreigners, applying for jobs in English-language teaching at training establis上海419品茶微信

hments is straightforward-often, simply submitting a resume is enough, and usually they are not r

上海419equired to undergo background checks, provide references or proof of qualifications,” Chu said.

He added that parents and students are more forgiving of fo

reign teachers’ lack of teaching credentials, especially if they are white-skinned nati上海419品茶微信

ve speakers, because they assume that all foreigners have the ability to teach their mother tongue.

She appealed to the public to calm down, set aside differences on political issues and reject violence.

Lam said the chief executive’s responsibility is to ensure that Hong Kong remains a safe, orderly and law-abiding city.

The Shanghai-based Xinmin Evening News praised the play to be “a highly aesthetic new Kun
