    You haven't got a clue, have you?

    Starting salaries are 65K a month plus benefits.

    You wouldn't even be shortlisted.

    I never worked at British Council, but I did my CTEFLA at the BC in Kuala Lumpur (long time ago before it became CELTA). The instructors were the most snobbish bunch of wankers a person would hope never to meet. Good at their job, I'll admit.

    Ex-BC teachers I met in the various places I worked in Asia and the Middle East were funny and personable colleagues. Maybe being free from tbe BC lightened the burden of whatever irked them. The ones I met that were working at the British Council must have lived on a diet of vinegar and olives they were so sour and bitter. Many of them also had a weird seige mentality as if they were the last bulwark of civilisation.

    Of course, this probably doesn't describe the majority of BC teachers. Maybe it was just my bad luck in meeting them when they were suffering massive hangover.

    You should be more selective in your sexual partners so that you avoid them.
