Working With Philipinos...

Recommended Posts

OP ... check my posting history - easy to view ... you'll see that my numerous posts are quite measured and reasoned in my responses.

I simply asked you to clarify a few points - which you didn't even read before making a snarky response. I ask how many Teachers there are in total ... in your English language Dept. Is it 6 Filipinos plus you? Or are there other non native English speakers working as teachers too? (such as a person from France, India, Africa or where ever). You didn't make that clear. The answer is important in understanding your situation dynamics. And where is your Director from?..(also very important in your long term survival as a teacher there). Office politics - Corporate personnel dynamics are not exclusive to a university department or to the teaching profession. There are books on the subject should you care to read them.

I will send them a cute little message in Tagalog that will make their heads spin. I speak it and lived there a long time and have serious connections at several levels... they want to play games? bring it on

Let me guess...................you're ex SAS, Para, Royal Marine, Delta Force, Charlie's Angel,.............. and you like to wear black underwear because it makes you feel 'hardcore'.

Grow up.

not at all.....I do have family there with Govt and Senior Police connections.....who could advise the persons concerned to stop playing games and do the job they are paid to do. Mafia tactics by Filipinos are common until they meet someone whos connected

Are you serious? You could just give "THEM" some names and they stop their "games"? Will they send paratroopers to Thailand and jump off the plane, land on campus? I'd suggest to make a tunnel that connects the islands with LOS!

Would the OP's colleagues have race horses, I'd "copy" the godfather's trick......w00t.gif

Honestly, there're other ways, just using common sense, as the OP will never be connected to the PI's underworld.--coffee1.gif

Does Ms. Moneypenny only speak Tagalog? She didn't understand me on the phone.

The last school I worked at had 2 filipino teacher's and then me...the lone falang teacher. I was very nice to them...and at first they were friendly...but they talked in their native language ALL the time, even when I was eating lunch with them (they can speak English perfectly fine,) so I was always left out of the conversation. If I tried to ask them something in English or talk with them in English, they would bluntly answer me and then revert back to talking to one another in their native language. The school did not want to hire me for another year...to this day, I still don't know why...but I have this feeling that one of the filipino's had something to do with it. She was always "kissing ass" as you say....I think they do feel threatened sometimes by the NES teacher's. But now I am at a better school and they have a Chinese teacher (no filipino's) and I must say that the Chinese teacher's I have encountered are SO much more friendly than the filipino teacher's I have met.

Note to any filipino's who may read this: In no way do I mean to say that ALL filipino teacher's like to "kiss ass" and are unfriendly...just the ones I have encountered seemed to be this way....I am sure there are many awesome filipino teacher's out there!
