This doesn't sound a very good offer to me. The salary, or 'grant', is something you will have to pay back if you leave early, right?

Also it is very low. Many jobs pay around 1,200 a month. I wo ...

Personally, I would give them a very, very wide berth!!!

I'm sorry to hear about your story.

It won't make very much difference, I'm sorry to say. Most schools won't care that much. They will be looking for experience with teaching English, effectiveness in the classroom, and a good attitude ...
