The TEFL Oscars 2008

Obnoxious School. Classes Appalling. Real Shysters.

The 2008 TEFL Blacademy Awards Ceremony
presented by the ever popular
Inspector McHammered of the Lard.

Live February 24, 2008 from The Hotel Wanker in Austria where the Inspector is currently on a skiing holiday.





THE 2008 CATEGORIES FOR THE OSCARS....................
  • OVERALL OSCAR WINNER WORST SCHOOL 2008
  • WORST SHYSTER
  • WORST PAID
  • WORST LOCATION
  • WORST FRANCHISE
  • WORST JOB BULLETIN BOARD
  • WORST TEFL JOB ADVERTISED
  • WORST TEFL COURSE PROVIDER
  • WORST SCHOOL FOR RIPPING OFF STUDENTS
  • WORST TEFL AGENT
  • WORST TEFL PUBLICATION
Only a few more days to go.


A quick reminder of last year's winners:

OVERALL OSCAR WINNER WORST SCHOOL 
2007ASTA Kids Club in Incheon, Korea
WORST OWNER
Shane of Shane schools and his alter ego Saxoncourt Recruitment.
WORST DOS
ASTA Kids Club in Incheon, Korea 
WORST PAID
East London School of English 
WORST LOCATION
China. Can be great if you do your research well but a place to be very wary of as there are some terrible schools. 
WORST FRANCHISE (for people daft enough to buy one)
Smith's School of English, Japan. Shame on International House London as well and worthy of a special mention.
WORST JOB BULLETIN BOARD
TEFL.com. No attempt at all to inform the unsuspecting teacher of crap outfits. At least Saint Dave Sperling has a forum (albeit heavily neutered).
WORST TEFL COURSE PROVIDER
Paul Lowe of Windsor TEFL Courses
WORST SHYSTERS FOR STUDENTS
Wall Street Institute for being bankruptcy bandits.

As you have probably gathered The Inspector was not in a good mood last year. Just thinking about some of these "schools" brought out boils on his bum and he couldn't sit down for a week.
There's a whole load of new schools to take into consideration for The Oscars 2008.
