This is a public service.
Beware of LearnShip Network GmbH from Cologne, Germany. They are the most dishonest people I’ve ever met. This group will ask you to work your butt off but will eventually just cancel your contract. They will rush you to finish your project then after they get what they needed, they will just say “we don’t need you anymore”. They still owe me money.
Let me tell you my horrible story here:
I was hired to to work on their educational materials. They rushed and gave me deadlines, my contact person told me that I was doing a great job.
They asked for all the files I created and then the next day they surprised me with cancelation of contract. They were claiming that I didn’t meet the quality they were looking for. I argued this reasoning because base on my communication records, my contact person was saying that my job was good and and that’s exactly what they were looking for. In fact, with everything I created for them the total of 450 files, only 11 files returned to be fixed and I immediately resubmitted.
When I questioned that why they were saying that my work is not good and there’s only 11 files that needed to be done, they gave me this lie that “They edited the rest on the files on their end”. This is totally a lie because from the email conversations below will prove that my work was what they expected and the files that was resent to me was JUST the files that needs correction.

I’ve checked chapter 06. It was good! There is just one subchapter that has to be modified. It is subchapter 17. Exercise A is missing. Please, correct it and then put it in the dropbox….

I’ve checked everything that is in the dropbox so far. Good job! There are just two files that have to be changed:
– Chapter “Verbs” – Subchapter “The verb have” – practice exercises are missing
– Chapter “Questions, negatives and answers” – Subchapter “Who, what and which?” – the activity C wasn’t correct and has to be redone.
I would also like to discuss the deadline with you (Friday, 13th of January). So far, you’ve done around 50 subchapters (until Thursday) and there are around 150 more to be done. You would have to do, counting from today (Friday), around 20 subchapters per day….

Exactly, this is how it should look like….
I’m also questioning this: If they think that my work was substandard, why they waited for me to finish all the files they needed from me, get all of them before they inform me that they are canceling my contract. The truth is they found my work useful, and that’s exactly what they needed as what they claimed on our email conversation above.
Then they reiterated that the reason why they cancelled my contract it is now because “the speed at which the work was done was much slower than the expectations” according to them, which I totally disagree. Again, a lie.
Their deadlines were unrealistic, they told me that the files to be created was only 150 files so but when I totaled everything it’s about 430 files. Duh, I completed 430 files versus 150 files they expected. If they think I didn’t meet the deadline, it’s because their project manager screwed up with scheduling which isn’t my fault and they have no excuse to throw me under the bus.
Don’t trust this people, you don’t want to work with them. If you are planning to work for them as a teacher or planning to hire their service to teach you English. Remember that they stole the materials from the workers who they didn’t pay.
You don’t wan to work with dishonest people, they will try to screw you in every way.
I’m calling those other people who work with them and had problems, please post your experience here. If you were their former teachers and didn’t get paid, you are welcome to post here as well.
If you are the client who didn’t get the service you expected, send in your experience here as well.
