Teachers of English

Firstly, let me correct the term English teacher; in this form the word English is an adjective and is not the term for the language.
Secondly, teachers of English need only to be English-speakers as the role they invariably play is that of fund-raiser for the language institution.

Where I teach English the institution classified itself as a university but when arriving in China I found this to be a misnomer. The place was no more than a derelict school with no technology, no standard of cleanliness and no sense of honesty prevailing among its elite staff.
The students are generally unsatisfied with this institution and feel that they have been cheated into enroling. Most feel they would rather be elsewhere.
The local teachers of English certainly do try hard enough but the results
are not such that the graduates are in any position to go out and teach other Chinese students the rudiments of the English language.
It is all a rather sad joke, both for the so-called 'foreign'  [itself a misnomer] teacher of English and for the students themselves.

a very honest post indeed... thank you.
a dilema for the so called teachers, more so for the students.
Not the foreign teachers are to be blamed, certainly the hiring procedure of the schools should be looked into it and the irresponsible bosses should be fired.
