Institute Review
My flatmate worked for a TEFL Training company and they gave him a script to use when he had to call 5o teachers a day and tell them "You will never make over 10,000 yuan a month in China without a TEFL certificate!"  I have been teaching in China for 3 years, never earned less than 14,000 yuan, and never had any TEFL or other teaching certificate.  Its just one big street hustle!
