Yawn. I can’t believe he is still posting a year on. If you look at the lack of comments it suggests that nobody else really cares about this ranting either.

I don’t know who the person is who is writing but I would warrant a guess that he’s some bored and miserable mid aged expat with an axe to grind. He obviously has nothing else going on in his life. I don’t see why he cares he no longer works there so move on. There is more to life than axe grinding.

Who on Earth is this Chezal anyway? “She” started promoting TBI CELTA courses on Dave’s ESL Cafe back in 2009. It is now 2013 and Chezal is still rushing to TBI’s defense on Dave’s like a yapping guard-dog every time people dare to criticize the honor of The Binsar Institute. In 2009 some people on Dave’s (an ESL forum) said they found the TBI CELTA course boring and Chezal (who claims never to have been to TBI Jakarta in “her” posts) defended TBI CELTA strenuously and said she had never known anyone to find RW boring. Huh? But you said in other posts Chezal that you were based in TBI Medan and had never been tempted to move to Jakarta. So are we expected to believe that RW’s reputation stretched 1700 km to North Sumatra where Chezal claims to have endlessly picknicking with Indonesians on tops of scenic hills?

Some other people on Dave’s have accused Chezal or being just an advertiser or promoter in disguise, trying to drum up business for the TBI CELTA. We will leave you to draw your own conclusions but “she” is certainly a busy little dynamo. Between 2009 and 2013 she posted on Dave’s ESL Cafe 122 times, running down EF dozens of times and pimping TBI dozens and dozens of times. Some of the things which she attacks EF for (eg. not paying tax and not handing out tax slips) are exactly the same at TBI! I can assure you Chezal would not have received an accurate tax slip at TBI Medan so why does this biased young “lady” attack other schools on this ground?

Now Chezal claims to have worked at TBI Medan from 2004-2007 approximately, but in the quoted passage, she is still defending TBI and attacking TBI critics in 2013. Chezal may claim “there is more to life than axe grinding”, (which is just her way of invalidating a totally worthwhile anti-corruption campaign against a company which has employed death threats against some ex-teachers) but there is also more to life than promoting and defending a company and CELTA course you allegedly haven’t worked for in 6 years either. What really is Chezal’s motive in coming onto Dave’s ESL cafe 122 times and defending TBI? Let me leave you with the incredible similarities between the biography of Chezal and David Bradbury, the former CELTA trainer and venal co-conspirator with Luke Preece.

Chezal’s Bio (from her 122 posts)

* Worked for years in TBI Medan

* Has a Degree majoring in Physics from a UK University

* Has an Indonesian husband who she met in Medan

*Is fluent in Indonesian and loves to boast about it

* Employs a snide and snipey tone whenever she is challenged or questioned

* Loves to defend the quality of the TBI CELTA courses

David Bradbury’s Bio

* Worked for years in TBI Medan

* Has a Degree majoring in Physics from a UK University

* Has an Indonesian husband who he met in Medan

*Is fluent in Indonesian and loves to boast about it

* Employs a snide and snipey tone whenever he is challenged or questioned

* Worked as TBI CELTA trainer with RW for years

Now we don’t claim that David Bradbury is posing as this ‘woman’, Chezal. We just want to highlight the incredible similarities between the two biographies of these ex-TBI luminaries.and note what a small world it really is.
