Moving abroad to teach! Hello, My name is Sophia and currently live and teach in the UK, 30 years old with 7 years primary school teaching experience. I am interested and keen to experience working and living abroad. I have a serious passion for change and currently feeling unfulfilled. I am nervous and a little apprehensive as I have don’t really have friends that have done anything like this before to offer advice. If anyone could shed some of their experiences/advice on moving, living and working abroad, I would be extremely grateful. Many thanks!

Dear educators, I am looking for education professionals who have been working in an International School/Schools abroad to give input in my thesis. My thesis for Oulu University of Applied Sciences Master´s in Education Entrepreneurship program focuses on recruitment of teachers for International Schools. I am focusing on Teacher´s perspective in the process to find out what are the qualities and prerequisites that teachers prioritize and value, when deciding on overseas employment. Here is a link for the questionnaire: https://forms.office.com/r/ipdGdTUjmy I will be posting the finalized thesis e-version link here when finished in the end of 2023. Thank you! Pekka

Hi guys! Does anyone have an experience working in Abu Dhabi? o Bahrain? I am currently in China but I am slowly planning my exodus as most of the foreigners here.
If anyone could give me some advice about getting to work in Middle East, I would appreciate a lot.

Thank you in advance.

I'm planning a conversation activity where students have to antagonize/make alliances. They represent gays, differently-abled people and blacks. They work in groups of 3 where each minority is represented by 1 student. They are in a government-appointed committee where they are going to allocate funds to each group so they have to prioritise what is socially urgent or important; for example, ramps for buildings, quotas, cross-curricular contents at school and so on. How can I get them to use the words “crip”, “queer” and the “N WORD” incorrectly showing offence when the slur is misappropriated and pride when it is correctly used as a badge of honour? Is there a game strategy to kind of create some kind of “jinks”? Thanks!

My name is Leila. Currently I am doing research about teaching foreign languages: what problems do teachers have, how do they organize their workday, etc.

I will be glad to any feedback

Response from Employer advertiser, nationality is known to advertiser and then asking for Passport copy Via email and once received the school informs that passport will be difficulty due to working visa (EU country BTW, no such problem).
Should withhold sending of ID via email to the advertisers requesting?

Hello, as you may know there are thousands of teaching jobs around the world that is available, however the biggest concern is that to get to those jobs will require either to be quarantined in that particular country or not even allowed to travel at all with all these lockdowns. My advice is even though we need the job, the money and remaining perks, please don't make the mistake that I did. I am currently in Afghanistan and we all know the status of this country and what is happening. Trust me, I did make a big mistake and I am paying the price of not being able to leave the country or having the freedom to move around the city as a result of security issues. Please if you have plans on travelling to work abroad, do proper research

Flights? I'm pretty confused about how to get to a position. Does anyone know about flights to China from Georgia or Turkey, or even alternative transportation from Ukraine? There are many positions open, but how do we get there?

Hello colleagues, it is my first post here. I am from Ghana and working as a biology teacher in Jakarta. I am planning to make a move to the US and I got interviewed by 2 schools last week (March 30). Both told me I they will move me to the next phase of the recruitment process but I have just been informed by friends that schools cannot process an h1 visa for me at this time because the deadline has passed. Those going to teach in the US in 2021/22 academic year are those that were recruited a year ago. I am confused because the schools that interviewed me should know better. Why are they pursuing my candidacy if they cannot sponsor me? Anyone has an idea if schools can hire at this time in America for expats to go and teach in September?

Hello! I am a preschool teacher and I have some problems with the discipline in my classroom. Two of the kids are always running and screaming and one of them refuses to do what I tell him to do and disturbes the others, who are playing or ”working”. They are good kids, but they are not paying attention. I don*t know how to impose myself. I tried to raise my voice, but it is not working. Also, I think my childish face does not help me very much in this case. Can you tell me some tricks from your experience?

After six years, my company has stopped the English teacher Inner Mongolia government project it was involved with. At the age of 62, let’s put theory into practice and discover if holding triple degrees, plus experience, outweighs age. Residency visa expires in five weeks time. Countdown to actively looking 3.2.1 … go!

China introduced a new 'Foreigners Work Permit' wef 1st April 2017.
This applies to all new Contracts after that date.
Foreigners will be divided into three categories: A for high level talent, B for professional personnel, and C for foreigners who are nontechnical or service workers hired on a temporary/seasonal basis. The goal is to encourage A level foreigners to come to and work in China, exert control over B level foreigners and restrict/limit the C levels.

Echo English. I'd like to encourage teachers to record their experiences of working for Echo English. Echo English are refusing to release my documents which means I have been unable to transfer my visa and take up a desirable position in Shanghai when my contract ends on June 30. They regularly take 60% of the salary a school is offering. For example if you receive 7k rmb they are taking 11k rmb of an 18k salary. You may also find that when you arrive a school has not been assigned to you. I was promised a school in central Hangzhou but I'm 18km and a 90 minutes bus ride away, there is no subway.

I hear expat teachers who are HIV positive are being deported. How true is this? Is its an employment policy or the China Government policy? if so, what happens to healthy HIV positive teachers?

Decomposition of the Chinese Characters. What is It?

Different Chinese language teachers name decomposition of the Chinese characters in different ways. The synonymic names are: Structural analysis of the Chinese characters, Breakdown of the Chinese characters, etc.

The essence of these terms is the same: analysis. The Chinese language is a very analytical language and the Chinese characters are learned and memorized only by means of analysis. Try to analyze the Chinese character ? shén ‘what’ and you will see how simple it is for memorizing!

Decomposition of the Chinese character ? shén ‘what’

? rén man
? shí ten
? yi one
? gun line

????

NB. Synonyms: Structural analysis of the Chinese characters, Breakdown of the C
