Teaching Spots- Call for Comments

Hello Readers,

Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish. Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be himself. ~Francis C. Farley

So in this Christmas season, I'm offering you the chance...

... to be yourself!

So far this year, we've taken a look at what it's like teaching ESL in the following cities: Venice (Italy), San Jose (Costa Rica), Athens (Greece), Chengdu (China), Shanghai (China), Oxford (England), and London (England).

Now's your chance to express yourself. Tell us about where you have taught ESL. Send me an email at crueckert@eslemployment.com and share your story.

Here are some suggestions for things you could include:

* the name of the city and the country it's in
* something special about the city
* the average ESL teaching salary there
* any websites that give information about the city
* websites that list ESL schools in that city
* the cost of living (eg. the price of a 2 bedroom flat or a typical meal out for 2)
* any other comments

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
