    Anyone here have first- or second-hand experience when it comes to schools throughout Asia that might use the word "eh" a lot? Additionally, I'd be super interested if anyone knows something about either/both of the Great White North schools in Hong Kong.

    A PM would be great, but feel free to chime in below on a more general basis. Sorry for all these awkward descriptors, just want to stay on the right side of the law here!

    I dont know much about Maple Leaf, but as far as I know they tend not to be very international in student numbers. Mostly locals. I think a couple of schools have large Korean and Taiwanese populations. They pay quite reasonably and they tend to be in 2nd tier cities, so cheaper costs.. I know Dalian is a nice place to be.

    Maple Leaf tends to be somewhere relatively new Canadian teachers go to get some experience or where retired Canadian teachers go to double dip.

    My info isn't particularly up to date, but I hope it helps.

    Thanks @Helen-Back, appreciate the thought. I'll send you a PM here shortly. I know that as a Canadian I'm not at all limited to these schools, I just figured they might be a great way to get my foot in the door of international teaching.

    Yes, most Canadian schools are foot in the door experiences, mostly focused on local students and pushing them into Canadian universities when they graduate.
