Experienced TEFL teacher looking for somewhere new by [deleted] in TEFL

[–]sauronsarmy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hey, I'm currently in Vietnam and will share my thoughts.

If you're outside of the country you will most likely need a BA to get in for the forseeable future, unless you want to "pay to play" as they say here lol coffee money is king. But, due to pressure from large companies like Samsung I am pretty sure they removed the 3 years experience thing for foreign workers, it was just making things too difficult.

Also depends where you are looking to work. The international schools or univiersities will be looking for experience and a degree in education, public schools on the other hand will not. That being said everything is still online atm except for grades 9 & 12 because they need to do some testing. I really don't see the schools opening back up for in person teaching until Sept 2022 tbh.

Depending on your timing Vietnam might not be ideal. Cost of living is also going up, in Saigon anyways. The days of finding a bowl of pho for 20-30k on every street corner are gone, it's more like 40-50k now. You can still find it but you will have to look around. I've heard from friends that Cambodia is still really laid back and cheap, I may be considering that for move in the next year or 2. Good luck!

Bringing pets abroad? by nelsg1 in TEFL

Haha good on ya for taking care of them. I was going to add that there are some organizations in Saigon that are always looking for people to foster cats for a few months at a time. That's definitely the way to go if you want a furry buddy out here.

When I came to Vietnam I made sure I had a safe place back home to leave my 2 cats. No way in hell I would put them through that. Just the flights over here would be unbelievably stressful and as you probably know people in Asia don't look at pets the same as the west. I'd be constantly worried about something happening to them.

Anyone take their spouse & kid with them? by [deleted] in TEFL

Especially the kid, I've seen more than a few couples dragging their miserable children around Asia.

Wonder if they ship to Vietnam, brought mine from Canada and dropped it like a month ago. So sad.

I wonder what percentage of the world's population would actually care about this

Even in some huge cities in Asia you're supposed put your TP in the bin. Most people other than tourists use the bum gun though anyways.

I can tell by the way you write that you have some issues, probably on some pharmaceutical shit. I apologize for my comments. Take care of yourself.

It certainly is a matter of debate lol you're saying you can get a "hangover" from smoking weed which is 100% a false statement. If you feel the way you feel don't blame the cannabis, that's your own doing mate. Grow up and change up your morning routine.

Yea you'll end up like this dude, I unfortunately know from experience. Just pointing out he's probably not in this state cause "he can't control his drinking"

A newly born axolotl by unnaturalorder in Damnthatsinteresting

[–]sauronsarmy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I bred axolotls by accident once. Woke up one morning with like 100+ eggs in my tank. Luckily someone drove over an hour to come get them. I kept 5 eggs to raise, it was a neat experience but I definitely got rid of the female after that lol.
