General » where are the best schools in jakarta located?
I am recieving job offers from 4 different districts(east, west, north, and central) in jakarta. I am
looking for some feedback on the pros/cons of each district. I dont want to live and work right in
the heart of the city. I need to live on the outskirts of the city for peace of mind, yet close enough
to the city for work purposes. I was leaning towards to the west, but that is just a hunch. Has
anyone been to panaitian island? How long does it take to get there? thanks in advance.

Hi!

Hopefully somone can pop in with the names of some of the larger language schools in Vietnam.


In the mean time, you might want to check out a Canadian volunteer teaching organization that needs English teachers in rural Vietnam. I know you are looking for a paid position, but this is a great opportunity to get some experience, learn basic Vietnamese, and become better aquainted with the culture!

Check out:
Bureau for Canadian Volunteers Abroad

Contact: David McAmmond, info@canadianvolunteersabroad.org,

Hey - I'm a female hoping to go teach in Vietnam. I'm trying to decide which city to go to. Ho Chi
Minh or Hanoi. Any suggestions?

Also, for those of you who have gone to Vietnam to teach already - is there anything I should do in Canada before going? (the whole work visa/criminal record check part - what should be done here and what can be done once in Vietnam?)

Thanks for your help!
Cheers!

General » Grad Warning!
We have received a number of complaints from some of our female students about a man posing as a hiring English Academy in countries such as Spain, China, Dubai, Greece and Costa Rica. He has used the names Dr. Alan Hamilton, and more recently Raymond Anderson. The company he claims to work for is either BOPINESL or BOTESL. He uses the e-mail address: eng200204@yahoo.ca.

He conducts phone interviews with potential teachers and they normally last from 1 ? to 2 hours in length and are extremely personal. Questions and requests are inappropriate and sexually motivated.

This man, we believe, is finding contact information for new, female, ESL teachers by searching resume boards on the Internet.

Please be sure not to post information such as your phone number and address on websites.

Include only your e-mail address on your online resume, and once you have received a job offer from a school you can provide them with a phone number to conduct a phone interview. It is normal for a school to request one or two photos of you dressed professionally.

If this man has contacted you, please inform your local police. This is the only way we can hope to stop this from happening. We have also alerted the authorities, specifically the Internet Crimes Division.

General » Poland
Hi, welcome to the board!

Here is the website for the Polish Embassy in Canada: http://www.polishembassy.ca/ and here is information about foreigners working in Poland: http://www.infoobywatel.gov.pl/english/index.html

After some more searching, I found this site: http://www.jobmonkey.com/teaching/europe/html/expats_in_poland.html

"Of the expatriates who have settled in Poland, many seem to integrate better into the local communities and get involved in local activities than they do in places like Prague and Budapest, where it's relatively easy to avoid the locals by hanging out in places where only expats congregate. So if you want to find your own little niche among an ordinarily friendly and open people, Poland might be just the place for you. It will definitely challenge you in ways that the other countries won't simply because it seems more of a frontier than the Czech Republic or Hungary."

Sounds like a great place! Good Luck
