I worked there as a General English teacher from 2006 to 2007. I taught university student, professionals, and staff from the Saudi Embassy in Jordan. When I began at AESLC, part of my "orientation" included being taken into an empty classroom by a fellow teacher, D. N., who was from Australia. She closed the door behind me and proceeded to tell me how to flirt with male students during and outside of class, in order to hopefully bring in more male students, as well as keep current ones returning for further classes. When I say "how to flirt", I mean how to stand at the board and move my arm or body so that my midriff would show, how to flirtatiously talk with male students, and how to bend down at a male student's desk so that he could catch a glimpse of cleavage. Bear in mind, she was in her 60's and separated from her husband; I was in my 40's and married to a Jordanian. She informed me that this was something she always discreetly taught new teachers at the center. I never followed what she said about flirting. I found it repugnant and unprofessional. Additionally, she was dating some of the males students, many whom she taught. She discreetly talked about this with "select" teachers. The female owner, with whom the teacher was good friends, knew about this but did nothing to discourage or stop this unethical behavior and conflict of interest. Lastly, there were cameras and spyware in use by the owners, all of which were not made known to the students or staff. I know of a few people who were let go simply because they looked something benign up on a computer at work while at lunch, but something that the female owner didn't like. She accused the those employees of looking for other jobs with other companies when they weren't doing that at all. In other words, the results of the spyware use could be used against any employee at any time for any reason, unfounded or not, especially if the employee wasn't favored by the one or both of the owners. In summary, although I was treated decently in the beginning and sometimes received my pay late, I will never recommend that anyone work at AESLC, nor will I recommend that anyone take classes from there. I find the business and its owners to be dishonest, violators of copyright laws, and morally corrupt both personally and professionally.
