    Send them some frogs and tell them one is a fully ESL qualified prince.

    Happy New Year to everyone (except some unnamed folk in Spain).

    I can't believe my eyes. Maybe it's a joke. One must have a huge amount of money in the bank before taking that job.

    It's a classic- I think it is the worst advert I have come across for a teaching 'job'.

    Teaching English is still a profession that you can get into shortly after getting off the plane. Perhaps they'll find an "English professional" with a backback at the local information centre? Though, since they also withhold wages for two month, they might have trouble for even that.

    There are a lot of scummy English schools to work for in Japan, too.
