Inlingua Avelino, Italy

Check out a new posting about this organisation. I've heard absolutely nothing good about them and in fact quite a few comments echoing the same sentiments.
The owners are as mad as hatters and Inlingua Avelino should be avoided like the plague. So called "schools" like this are the very reason for the existence of The TEFL Blacklist and it beats me why Inlingua devalue their name by allowing them to be part of the Inlingua group.

On another note:

The young Italian

A virile, young Italian gentleman was relaxing at his favorite bar in Rome, when he managed to attract a spectacular young blonde. Things progressed to the point where he invited her back to his apartment, and after some small talk, they retired to his bedroom and made love.

After a pleasant interlude, he asked with a smile, " finish?" She paused for a second, frowned, and replied,"No."

Surprised, the young man reached for her and the lovemaking resumed. This time she thrashes about wildly and there are screams of passion. The love making ends, and again, the young man smiles, And again he asks, "You finish?" And again, after a short pause, she returns his smile, cuddles closer to him, and softly says, "No."

Stunned, but damned if this woman is going to out last him, the young man reaches for the woman again. Using the last of his strength, he barely manages it, but they climax simultaneously, screaming, bucking, clawing and ripping the bed sheets. The exhausted man falls onto his back, gasping. Barely able to turn his head, he looks into her eyes, smiles proudly, and asks again, "You finish?" Barely able to speak, she whispers in his ear, "No! I Norwegian."

Beats the hell out of me why anyone would want to work for Inlingua anyway, since their "certificate" isn't worth the paper it's printed on outside their company. Any school that "devalues" Inlingua's name must be beyond imagining.

inlingua palermo are real gangster mentality bastards.I've overhead conversations of the IL Palermo boss talking about ways of fleecing teachers out of the pittance of a wage that they are paid.

I have never seen such a ruthless management attitude. The turnover of staff is insane. I saw about 10 teachers leave in just a few weeks. Be warned. Stay Away from this horrible school

I recently met a few teachers who worked at inlingua Palermo and are now going to work elsewhere. They were absolutely appalled by the management. Needless to say, they are never coming back here again. I applied to work for inlingua Palermo some 6 years ago but they never hired me despite all the training and years of teaching experience I have. In hindsight, I consider it a blessing!

I have just had an interview for a job at Inlingua Bologna and I think that I will be offered a job there. They are offering 1,000 euros net per month, for 75 hours work per month.

Can you give me any advice as to whether I should take this? I have other offers from a British Language School of Italy in Reggio Calabria - is this one of the schools to avoid?

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks!

Which school in Reggio di Calabria is it? There are a few down that way. The British School of Reggio di Calabria is apparently excellent, unlike The British School of Termoli which has just been roasted on the section "nominate a school for blacklisting" by some poor unfortunate teacher who no doubt would have avoided the place like the plague if she had known it was blacklisted.
The Inspector's views about Inlingua are well documented.
Your intrepid sleuth can't possibly know about every school but some of the real stinkers are infamous having been up to the same old tricks year after year.
