  2. speaking is important as writing. But for a non native speaker, if you'll stick yourself on the rule to communicate with native speaker, you'll find in disappointing and frustrating.

  3. This is a serious scam in which *many teachers* have been defrauded. The posting was made in ESL101. In addition, at least one of the teachers involved applied to YCIS's *on line* application -- and then sent a contract to YCIS's correct mailing address via FED EX. At that point, YCIS knew or should have known that someone had access to their documents (and to their database) - yet it would appear that YCIS is not concerned with those who have been "defrauded" (presumably by someone at their organization). Rather they are simply concerned that someone is "using the YCIS logo." From a legal perspective YCIS had some duty to inform people about the scam - and certainly to those who sent in what appear to be false contracts to the school. Moreover, one would hope that YCIS which purports to have "Christian values," would show compassion towards those who have been defrauded -- and not simply be concerned about their "logo" and intellectual property.

  4. There are many people who have been defrauded by a scam recruiter -- who appears to have access to the YCIS application databased *and* to internal documents at YCIS. This matter is being investigated by the FBI and by agents in Beijing, China. When contacted, YCIS appeared to be aware of the fraud -- but yet did nothing to issue a warning or to reach out to people who had sent false contracts directly to their school. Regardless of whether or not YCIS is legally culpable, they are certainly complicit in allowing this to continue. Moreover, when confronted with this information, they expressed concern about the "misuse of their logo" -- and showed no concern or compassion for those who had been defrauded. This by a school that purports to have Christian values.
