just so the title says it so... =)
I'm currently doing this "training program" that was released on the news a couple weeks ago. I said i wouldn't be doing it as i was highly skeptical around the idea. What kind of job would it be? Office? Sales? And the answer (d'oh) came out pretty simpler: They're looking for English teachers again.
After months of jobhunting, rejection letters, apologies from recruitment agencies, phone interviews passed with screeching halts when i mention my motherland: They are now TRAINING migrant wives to teach English to kids; charity cases, man to man session, kindergarten, middle schools and high schoolers as our main market. We have decided after receiving the newsletter that i should go and do it. I mean, they're going to give a certificate after 10 days (now running 7) so we'd be able to teach.
SO comes with this opportunity, the idea of meeting other wives is a pickle. I mean, i still have that stick up my ass, and i was about to enter an even bigger circle wherein my prejudice can and would probably spin out of control.
It also will give me access and an even bigger idea about the people, the reasons, the what-nots, of this inter-racial marriage, not to mention, be able to help those in need.
The ones who were about to take this "training program" are Filipino women. what a surprise. No other country people. I could only assume that it is because most of the other Asian wives cannot really speak english. Sure i have met a Vietnamese woman, and she can barely speak English, but she has a good understanding ability even if she could barely create a perfect sentence... But she's working. Teaching English too. Oh, great! Mediocre to the point of bad and she has a job? Even my husband scorned at the idea!
