I had lunch with another ESL teacher friend on Wednesday. We both worked together here in Brisbane. We talked about the changing scene in the ESL teaching industry. It is hard not to get disillusioned with it.
At the college we worked at we used to get paid for teaching hours - and none for all the documentation, planning etc. It has a hard slog. It was working almost full time but getting paid for only half of it. The DOS was a difficult person too.
To make things more difficult the government changed the rules and there are less students coming to Australia at the moment - and more schools too.
Anyway neither of us work there now.
