I'd like to teach English in China, but only for a couple months.

I studied in Beijing in 1992, I taught English in Taiwan from 1996 to 2004 and I'm fluent in (Taiwanese-flavored) Mandarin. I'd really like to get back to the Mainland, though, especially Beijing, which I miss a lot. And I'd like to see how it's all changed in the 14 years since I've been away.
I'd like to find an EFL school that will allow me to get back there for a few months, hopefully enough to save up a bit of money to go traveling before coming back to the US. Ideally, I'd like a school that'd pay for my plane ticket and housing, because I'm pretty much broke right now. I'd like to go before the Olympics are over, too. But most importantly, I want a school that's reputable and honest, and one that won't force me to use terrible or trendy pedagogy.
