Colin Language School

Postby Luxnoctis » 27 May 2016, 23:15

Hello, I was wondering if anyone here has ever heard of or worked at a school called Colin Language School. They seemed to be based in Taoyuan.
I heard about them from an ad posted on indeed and they offered some benefits such as airfare compensation and free accommodation which would be beneficial for me as I am outside Taiwan. I haven't been able to find out much about the school except for this website http://uscolin.com/ (which I could only find by running a reverse Google Image search on their logo posted on indeed) and that the director at the school is someone called Peng Leo.

Is this an ok school to work at or should I stay well away from them? Thank you for any replies.

Hi Luxnoctis,

I wish I could give you some advice, but to my recollection your post is the first word I've gotten about this school's existence.

I could be wrong (and I really mean that), but there appear to be two branches in Taoyuan:

Colin Foreign Language, Guangming School

科林外語 光明校

桃園市蘆竹區南昌路230號

Colin Foreign Language, Nankan School

科林外語 南崁校

桃園市蘆竹區長春路71號

https://goo.gl/H1BRkT

In both of the Google Maps Street View photos of the locations of the branches (the photos the Google Car made), the schools don't appear to be there. The schools, or some parts of them, can be seen in the added photos. The Street View photos appear to have been taken last year, and the added photos appear to have been taken this year, so maybe those two schools opened recently (just a guess).

There appears to have been--and for all I know (which is not much) there may still be--at least one school by that name or a similar name in Jiayi. Here's the Facebook page:

I can't tell whether the Facebook page is just for a Jiayi school or for a chain of schools. There appears to have been a very recent posting of the Colin logo on that Facebook page. But maybe I'm just misunderstanding everything.

So you have a degree in Chinese. In my opinion, that's a very good thing to have, especially here.

I hope somebody comes along and gives you better help.
